Storyline

When her roommate is brutally murdered, a Beverly Hills singer posts a "roommate wanted" ad in hopes of keeping up payments on her sprawling mansion in this thriller starring Destiny's Child's Farrah Franklin. Karma (Franklin)'s roommate is dead, and in order to remain up on her mortgage payments she'll have to find someone that can move in fast. Though an ad in the paper gets many replies, most of the applicants range from exceptionally quirky to outright insane. Eventually Karma selects the beautiful Sky (Kelle Cantwell) as her new roommate. But Karma's manager Wesley (Charlie Adams) can't help but feeling that something very strange is happening in his client's lavish, and he's about to discover that even the rich and famous can harbor some seriously dark secrets.

Good Premise, Poor execution.
19 December 2009 | by gothicimagesSee all my reviews

This film had a solid idea, one I was really excited to see: A Black Female Serial killer, preys on her roommates. The problem is they didn't build upon that premise, and instead I was very disappointed by the movie, which is filled with pointless cameos, bad acting, and a weak script.

More forethought should have been put into developing the lead characters, and more forethought should have been put into developing the plot: The Police detectives for instance are unbelievable here, and you wonder why after the first 15mins they didn't arrest the prime ( and only) suspect in the film. Never did we see the detectives come up with any new leads, any other suspects, for such heinous crimes.

The lead antagonist is also unbelievable and more wasn't done to make us understand her motivations for killing; by the time the ending comes and her motivation is reveleaed, we are left wondering "where did it come from" instead of "Why wasn't this presented sooner"?

The pace of the film is also way too long for this film, and could have used a stronger editorial hand, removing many of the pointless scenes of cameos/roommates applying. This could have been done in a montage style presentation, some of the actors / actresses in the cameos weren't strong enough in their delivery, and a simple montage would have gotten the point across, and sped up the pace of the film dramactically.

i gave the film three stars: One for the Female talent, who are all good looking, but whose acting skills leave something to be desired; One star for the nice red automobile, and the remaining star is for the strippers at the end of the second act of the movie, but I wish I could have gave it more for what I originally intended to watch it for.
