Remember the good old days of high school horror flicks like Carrie, Prom Night and, er, Prom Night II? The makers of Tamara remember those days just well enough to spin them into this Z-grade offering that at best belongs on the Sci Fi Channel, probably with a colon and an exclamation point somewhere in its title. Follow this bouncing ball of a plot: Tamara, an amateur witch who's hot for teacher and the target of much abuse from her classmates, is murdered in a prank gone horribly wrong, only to rise from her grave and enact predictable revenge on her tormentors.
That's it. What's more, thanks to a dearth of either imagination or special-effects budgeting, this mostly involves getting them to stab each other with pointy objects. Since the "characters" are really only distinguishable by their hairstyles, you could easily replace the latter half of Tamara with stick-figure storyboards, which would at least have the benefit of novelty. As it is, Tamara is one high school horror that should have been held back.
