Review: Hate Crime (2012)
First I´d like to thank James Cullen Bressack for providing a screener for his new flick, please note that is was provided prodiving I keep the review free from spoilers.. The plot is pretty basic as a family is held hostage by sadistic home intruders. Hate Crime is written by Jarret Cohen and James Cullen Bressack who also is the director. The acting is good and in some parts very strong, it´s shot point of view so it´s shaky cam. The atmosphere is distressing, there are several very tense scenes that packs a punch. It´s a very violent and brutal flick, it´s not for the squemish viewers. There is several unsettling scenes, violent rape, degradation and sadism. There is very little graphic violence, most of it occurs off screen or it´s shot that you don´t see it but the make-up fx that we do see are of good quality. No T & A in this except for scenes of female cast members in their underwear..
This review is based upon a passwordprotected screener provided by the director
Rating: 7 out of 7. Raw, brutal, unsettling and uncompromising. Hate Crime is powerful stuff that is sure to provoke some viewers, enrage the politically correct and shock the squemish. Highly recommended and definitely one of the best home invasion/terror flicks out there.
