Karla is a 2006 film about the infamous Canadian serial killers named Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka. The film was at first called Deadly and for some reason, it was changed to Karla when it was released. The writers of the film had based their script on interviews, trial transcriptions and a video that was actually made by the serial killers. The film caused controversy in Canada because the families of the victims had felt that the film has exploited what they remembered about their deceased loved ones. People in the Canadian government wanted people to boycott the film. Cineplex Odeon would only show the film in major cities like Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto. The premier of the film was supposed to be at the 2005 Montreal Film Festival. Air Canada, a sponsor of this festival, decided that it would not be a good idea and would not have the film debut at this festival. The victims' families saw the film eventually and said that they would not be against the film being shown in movie theaters.
