Some Kind of Hate

Some Kind of Hate

Directed by Adam Egypt Mortimer

Relentless bullying has turned Lincoln's life into a nightmare. But he soon learns the true meaning of terror when he is sent to a remote school for troubled teens and the harassment starts all over again. Only this time, someone is watching - a teenage girl named Moira who was driven to suicide by vicious bullying years ago. When Lincoln accidentally summons Moira from the grave, he unleashes a vengeful and unstoppable force on a mission of blood-soaked revenge.

After constant bullying, Lincoln accidentally conjures Moira, a girl driven to suicide by bullies years ago.

Cast: Ronen Rubinstein, Grace Phipps, Sierra McCormick, Spencer Breslin, Michael Polish

Distinctly above-average movie rooted in real pain. There's a sense of authenticity in the characters and dialog that hints at time spent in the same Reagan-era "tough love" hellholes that messed up my sister and my first wife back in the 80s. A few strong performances, with some genuinely disturbing moments, memorable shocks, interesting subtexts (like the queer bond hinted at between two hypermasculine bullies), and cathartic gore. Moira reminds me of my sister, which is not a compliment to either of them but speaks to the real-life experiences of at least a few of the filmmakers involved. That said, the story doesn't hang together well and certain pieces - like a "tough love" center in which the kids pretty much do whatever they want, whenever they want, without supervision or restraint - don't fit together at all. The pacing is slow, motivations change without reason (not ENTIRELY inaccurate, given that we're talking about teenagers), and the film's loaded with "Wait a minute, we're they just...?" moments. The script hints at a lot of things that never pay off, and could have used a few more revisions before shooting began. So, then - a mixed bag. There's a lot of good and several annoying problems. I still rate it higher than average, though, if only because that average for so many of these films is so very bad and certain elements of this movie are so very good.

Kind of glorified cutting and self harm , it was a bit shit. And Moria wasn't very convincing as a pained ghost.
