All eyes on James Cullen Bressack‘s upcoming found footage film Hate Crime! Check this out: it’s the Most Horrifying film of Pollygrind Film Festival, won Best Picture & Best Director at Underground Monster Carnival as well as Audience Award at Killer Film Festival Online and – believe it or not – it still has no distribution! Reason? Too controversial, almost banned in the UK, and so on… Bullshit!
All that because the movie centers on a family who arrives in a new neighbourhood: they are recording their youngest son’s birthday celebrations on video and then… well, then comes that controversial part of the story – their home is invaded by a bunch of crystal-meth-crazed neo-nazi lunatics…
And now we have to be quiet about that, ’cause apparently – it’s not something we should watch. Or talk about. Extreme content?
I prefer this explanation:
Despite its name, Hate Crime is 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.
I haven’t seen the movie (definitely interested, though) so I’ll stop defending James Cullen Bressack and his team. I will just add a few more things:
Hate Crime stars Sloane Morgan Siegel, Ian Roberts & Maggie Wagner.
We’ll keep an eye on it, but in the meanwhile – you can also visit their official Facebook Page. In other words, stay tuned for more updates and remember:
…people such as the intruders in Crime really are out there in the world, and they really do rape, torture, abuse, and murder families in front of one another.
What the hell, Alex Wiggins‘ review at BloodyDisgusting will explain the rest!
