Our successful (well, for Infernal Cinema) series of previews for this years FrightFest continues with feminist slasher Some Kind of Hate…
SCREENING INFO: Main Screen at 6.15pm, 8.55pm & 11.30pm on Saturday 29th August (UK PREMIERE)
What if your past came back for you as a fully formed, physical thing that was going to kill you? Tightly wound Lincoln is a favourite target for the local high school bullies. One day he violently snaps and is sent to the Mind’s Eye Academy, a remote desert reformatory. But the harassment doesn’t stop and in despair he accidentally summons the kindred spirit of Moira, a girl tormented to suicide in the same establishment, who is more than happy to take vengeance on his persecutors.
Director Adam Egypt Mortimer calls his payback body counter “A feminist slasher movie.”, and judging by what we’ve seen he is certainly right. Some Kind of Hate seems to be part of a new movement in horror/slasher/exploitation cinema (‘femihorror’ could perhaps be the new sub genres name) that seems to be an emerging theme in titles to be shown at this years FrightFest. Final Girl and Last Girl Standing are other movies that empower female characters in the usually male dominated genre. Mortimer’s feature feels fresh due to this.
As a director Adam has worked in music video, commercial, digital and narrative formats. He is currently producing the horror anthology feature Holidays in partnership with XYZ Films. Some Kind of Hate is his full length feature and it’s inclusion at FrightFest is a great way to attract attention. Adam is a man of many talents, as his science-fiction comic Ballistic (published by Black Mask Studios) proves. It has been acclaimed by reviewers in USA Today and Ain’t It Cool News, and has made it onto multiple top ten lists.
Starring Grace Phipps, Lexi Atkins, Spencer Breslin, Brando Eaton and more.
