Anyone interested in true crime, drama, the story of Paul and Karla or just getting the heck scared out of you, should check this movie out. Though the media frenzy the case ensued in Canada wasn't the same in the States, the story of this couple is just like the taglines say, deeply disturbing. My wife and I saw this movie and I was as freaked out as she was. We talked about it for days, and she still checks the locks on the doors at night. This is a great movie, and I think the director did a fantastic job interpreting this story. I would call it entertaining and informative. Laura and Misha should be applauded for there courage in taking on the roles of these truly sick people.
