Around these parts we love a good slasher movie. The only problem is finding a good slasher movie. Will the killer in the recently announced Some Kind of Hate be able to bring the right kind of disturbing to the old chopping block? Read on for details.
According to THR, Ronen Rubinstein, Grace Phipps, and Sierra McCormick will star in Some Kind of Hate, a new take on the slasher genre from Adam Egypt Mortimer.
The flick centers on a tightly wound kid who is a favorite target for the local high school bullies. He is sent away to a remote reform school, where the teen accidentally summons a vengeful spirit — herself a victim of bullying — to exact retribution on his tormentors.
Mortimer co-wrote the script with novelist Brian DeLeeuw (In This Way I Was Saved). Caliber Media partners Dallas Sonnier and Jack Heller arranged the financing and will produce alongside Amanda Mortimer and Gabriela Revilla’s Revek Entertainment.
Also in the cast are director Michael Polish, Noah Segan (Looper), Miss Illinois USA 2014 Lexi Atkins (Zombeavers), Spencer Breslin (The Happening), Maestro Harrell (“Suburgatory”), Jasper Polish (The Astronaut Farmer), music producer Jeremy Hawkins (stage name: JHawk), and Brando Eaton (“The Secret Life of the American Teenager”).
Shooting begins this week in Los Angeles with the producers citing Nightmare on Elm Street, Let the Right One In, and Carrie among the touchstones for the production.
Mortimer is a music video director who has worked on bonus features for movies such as Andrew Niccol’s In Time and the Blumhouse horror movie Curve. He also created the comic Ballistic.
