The feature debut of director and comic writer Adam Egypt Mortimer, “SOME KIND OF HATE” is looking like a hard-edged supernatural slasher, one that will twist perceptions of popular Disney stars Sienna McCormick and Grace Phipps in the process.
Mortimer tells Shock, “SOME KIND OF HATE” began when I discovered that my writing partner on a previous project – novelist Brian DeLeeuw – was a Slayer fan. I said, ‘Brian, we should write a Nightmare on Elm Street-styled paranormal slasher movie, but we should approach it like an emotionally intense indie drama.’ The idea was to make the emotional violence equal to the physical violence.
To find our 2015 Freddy, we came up with Moira Karp — an enraged 17 year old girl who died as the result of high school bullying and who has returned on a revenge bender. We made a slasher movie that tries to really be about something, while being super violent and even beautiful.” Promised to be anamorphic and brutal, Some Kind of Hate is expected at fests in 2015.
