Lifelong friends come to grips with one of them falling apart psychologically and the murdering spree that springs from it all.
Yet another slick, visually polished film lacking in substance. Kalamity aims to be a psychological study on the deteriorating mental state of a character and how it affects his friends. The problem is that the focus of the film is put on the friend (Nick Stahl), who should of been a supporting character, instead of Jonathan Jackson whose character is falling apart mentally and who is the most interesting person in the film to begin with. Since there is only so much for the friend character to do, the film drags out relentlessly finding repetitive situations to engage Nick Stahl's character in,
