Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There are few words to describe the awfulness of this movie, but let's give it the old college try: dismal, depressing, embarrassing and utterly lacking in any artistic or social worth."
‑ Jessica Reaves, Chicago Tribune
"This indie death-feast, directed by Jeremy Haft and penned by Jeffrey Reddick (co-writer of Final Destination), was initially slated to debut on video. Watching it, you'll wonder why the distributor changed its plans."
‑ Lisa Rose, Newark Star-Ledger
"You know things aren't going well when it gets tedious watching a teen girl strut around in short shorts and a loose top and you're waiting for her to use the ax and get it over with"
‑ Michael Szymanski, Sci-Fi Weekly
"There is nothing whatever special here, but it adequately achieves its modest ambitions."
‑ Andy Klein, Los Angeles CityBeat
"Surely independent horror has more to offer than this."
‑ Eugene Novikov, Film Blather
"An entry into the cycle of avenging teen-girl pictures, in which the filmmakers try gamely to put a unique spin on familiar material, but eventually fall back on by-the-numbers tropes."
‑ Mark Olsen, L.A. Weekly
"After a sly middle, the third act is just slasher-flick clichés; worse, it largely keeps Tamara offscreen. Villainy shouldn't be outsourced."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"A really dumb, derivative rip-off, slovenly constructed and played with the sort of ludicrous earnestness that just misses being bad enough to qualify as high camp."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"Those looking for a update on Carrie could do worse than this."
‑ Brent Simon, Now Playing Magazine
"Tamara is a mostly enjoyable horror romp and well worth a look if you're into supernatural thrills, witchy women and revenge of the nerds."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson, Horror.com
"The film has its dubious pleasures."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"A mediocre little thriller that might have promised cheap fun on Blockbuster's direct-to-DVD shelf is instead destined to die a quick death on the big screen."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"Este aspirante a Carrie, a Estranha segue todas as convenções do gênero a ponto de se tornar previsível já aos 5 minutos de projeção, e o elenco de canastrões só piora a experiência."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"By now, we all know what you did last summer and have had our ticket punched at our final destination. And nerdy girls have been turning hot and wreaking revenge on their nemeses at least since ZZ Top's heyday."
‑ Christine James, Boxoffice Magazine
"Tamara thinks it's a supernatural tale, but really it's just another Fatal Attraction retread with a supernatural twist, and a climax that just screams: sequel. Don't hold your breath."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Film Threat
