Home invasion thrillers are tough to do well, but Hate Crime seems to be on the right track, having already won awards at several film festivals. If you’re a fan of the sub-genre, check out this batch of posters and the trailer for the film.
Hate Crime is the second feature directed by 20-year-old indie filmmaker James Cullen Bressack, who describes it as “a labor of love from a dedicated group of people looking to make something different. Hate Crime is a violent, realistic portrayal of one of our worst nightmares, being attacked in our home. Despite being extremely well received by the horror community, this film has fought a lot of controversy due to its extreme content, almost being banned in the UK; has been pulled off the screens at festivals before even showing due to content and theatre management not willing to show the movie the festival booked; and has faced some trouble finding distribution since the shooting in Connecticut. We actually lost a distribution deal that was on the table due to that horrible tragedy.”
It was written and produced by Bressack and Jarret Cohen and stars Jody Barton, Tim Moran, Ian Roberts, Nick Clark, Maggie Wagner, Greg Depetro, Debbie Diesel, and Sloane Morgan Siegel. For more info visit the Hate Crime Facebook page.
