The movie Karla is supposed to be on the LMN channel tonight at 8 p.m. It'll be hard to stomach given the subject matter. Very disturbing now that she's now free and has a child.

The books on their crimes were unbelievable.  Even more unbelievable was that she was let out of jail.

Agreed. The movie last night wasn't any different from the books. I was hoping they would delve into her background to help us understand what went into making her the moster she is. The movie was based on what she told the Dr who interviewed her in prison so it's only what she told him, with her part being understated quite a bit I'm sure. I don't see her as the victim she evidently sees herself. I know she was beaten by Paul but she allowed herself to stay in that situation and helped him victimize other girls at the same time. If she's willing to help rape and kill her own little sister, she's willing to do anything. Whether she was sadistic or just had no backbone and was a follower as she'd like us to believe (but I don't) she shouldn't be a part of free society and I for one am convinced she's still a menace. I worry very much for the child she's raising!

If not for her actions, her sister would be alive!! I think she was/is as sadistic as Paul. She shouldn't be allowed to breathe, her victims can't. I beleive in karma, and she will get hers!!!

She should have never been let out of jail.  It's pathetic.  Those young girls she helped murder, including her own sister, will never be able to have children.  She should be rotting in prison.

Not only is she  a physco she was corressponding with a man who was in prison for strangling a bunch of women at her release date she was told she could not visit or write him anymore when he was realeased they were planning to live together.To know she is out of jail sickens me. She got a taste of killing and i think some part of her enjoyed it . There were too many times she could of left turned him in set the girls free SOMETHING! The tapes after they were recovered spoke volumes in the amount of her involvment. Larura Prepon did a good job playing her I luv that 70's show,

Subject: I feel sympathy toward her.

Am I the only one who thinks Karl Homolka was a poor helpless victim to that evil bastard Paul? Karla wouldn't hurt a fly. She's the image of innocence.
