Some Kind Of Hate full movie review - Suicide kills: two for the price of one
"Some kind of Hate" is a brutal but formulaic slasher with a couple of supernatural elements processed into the plot.
It's not exactly original or particularly memorable, but it's nonetheless entertaining and surely delivers the goods in terms of violence and bloodshed. Lincoln is an introvert semi-emo teenager who gets bullied at home by his biker father as well as at school by the popular jocks. When Lincoln does finally dare to stand up for himself and sticks a fork into the eye of the bully, he's the one to gets punished and send to some sort of karma rehabilitation camp for juvenile delinquents. At the camp, however, the bullying against Lincoln's persona cheerfully continues, but when he hides from his tormentors in a basement, he accidentally summons the vengeful spirit of a girl named Moira who also got bullied at the camp and committed suicide. Moira promptly starts to annihilate Lincoln's bullies, but also the innocent kids and specifically the camp counselors with whom she has a personal score to settle. The premise of bullied high school kids avenging themselves with the help of the paranormal certainly isn't new, just think of such (semi-)classic titles like "Carrie", "Horror High" or "EvilSpeak", but not too many directors dare to tackle the subject of teenage suicide. Some of the characters' stories and testimonies are quite bleak and depressing, but luckily the emphasis primarily lies on the action. The first 2 or 3 kills are tame and take place mostly off- screen, but then all hell breaks loose and especially the last half hour is gore- soaked and vicious, notably because a few totally innocent and even sympathetic supportive characters are relentlessly butchered. The gore is always two for the price of one, because Moira's ghost cuts her own wrists and throat, and her victims simultaneously suffer the exact same wounds. The acting performances are good, with a few familiar faces (like Noah Segan and Andrew Bryniarski) and fresh new talents. Although fairly irrelevant, I must also state that two of the lead actresses are unbelievable gorgeous: Grace Phipps and Sierra McCormick.
