Disturbing, yet compelling… That 70’s Show star Laura Prepon is downright chilling in her portrayal of

Karla Homolka. This movie is profound on many levels…”  –McG’s Movie Picks, 

This autumn, monterey media will commence United States distribution of this sensational true crime drama Karla, beginning with nation wide theatrical engagements. A movie that provoked controversy in Canada during its successful nine-week Toronto theatrical run, Karla was an official selection of the Montreal Film Festival as the opening night presentation only to be withdrawn at the 11th hour due to sponsorship pressure. These intense feelings provoked by Karla in Canada, have translated into critical acclaim and Official Selection at prestigious film festivals in America for this gripping motion picture including the Santa Barbara., Cleveland and Palm Beach film festivals.

"The film is a warning to beware the sly smile on a handsome face.

And beware a film that will keep you up at night."  -

With powerful performances by Laura Prepon (“That 70’s Show”) and Misha Collins, most recently seen on NCIS,

this psychologically fascinating recounting of a couple that was seemingly perfect, having had a fairy tale wedding with a horse-drawn carriage, unfolds the truth: they had already begun a killing spree. The supporting cast of Karla includes Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee Tess Harper and Superman Returns star Brandon Routh. Visit the Karla website at

You can't help but marvel at the wickedness the performers pack into their roles, but you can't help

 but be reminded that even pretty people do pretty awful things.” –Santa Barbara New-Press

 True Crime. Look past the smiling face. Look into the eyes of a killer.
