Some Kind Of Hate
In April 2014, Some Kind of Hate was officially announced along with the castings of Ronen Rubinstein, Grace Phipps, Sierra McCormick, Lexi Atkins, Maestro Harrell, Noah Segan, Michael Polish, Jasper Polish, Spencer Breslin, Brando Eaton and Jeremy Hawkins. Dallas Sonnier and Jack Heller of Caliber Media signed on to produce the film alongside Amanda Mortimer and Revek Entertainment's Gabriela Revilla. The casting of A.N.T Farm star McCormick, who was hired at the "last minute", was used to draw in her younger fanbase, as Mortimer wanted to create "the first intense horror movie experience that some of these kids will ever have". Mortimer had met with Hannah Marks for an undisclosed role, but would later cast her in his follow-up film Daniel Isn't Real.

Helen T. Verongos, writing for The New York Times said "Some Kind of Hate succeeds at being discomfiting" but that the film "fails to deliver a thrill". Nick Schager of The Village Voice wrote "Like so much teen-targeting modern horror, it opts for dull angsty brooding over the very sort of grim-and-gruesome sleaziness that might have made its premise interesting." For The Los Angeles Times, Gary Goldstein called the film a "convoluted slashfest".
SOME KIND OF HATE's "Undisputed": A sort of hardcore Oi! that sounds almost as much as The Hellacopters or Electric Frankenstein, than Cro-Mags or Madball. Other times I hear Discharge and G.B.H. influences over Blood for Blood or even Agnostic Front. I can't deny the record its moments of true hardcore and inspired punk rhythms. At times the speed almost sound like thrash ("Who's Next"), and there are even crusty, almost grind moments here and there ("Loose Lips Sink Ships") only to be chopped up by catchy, rock-n-roll sing-a-long choruses. "Desperate Like The Rest of Them" has a Minor Threat feel, but signs off like a Motorhead number. "Watch Them Fall" starts by punching you with machine gun drum fills, later kicking into a rebel, foot stomping beat. "All My Hero's" goes from punk to almost sludgy breaks - like a warped record speeding up and slowing down. Cool as fuck. I wish there were more songs, but I'm a lot more satisfied listening to short hardcore records than grindcore records (songwriting varies more from track to track). The layout is simple, but eye-catching. The cover shot of the skin with Boston replacing England tattoo, liner photos and paper it's printed on are all nice touches, but nothing flashy. The music is definitely powerful enough not to need it anyhow. -www.feastofhateandfear.com
While working on this latest project, I was surprised to learn that showing kindness toward those who might believe hateful things about us can make a difference. Learning that has changed the way I think and act.
Out here the tuition plays second fiddle to pep talks from the Academy head Jack (Michael Polish). Jack and his right-hand man Krauss (Noah Segan) are dubious characters, but nothing compared to Moira (Sierra McCormick), the local malevolent spirit in physical form, who is trapped in a subterranean storage facility just itching to get vengeful on someone, anyone. Lincoln provides the necessary goods when he screams out in anguish one night, crying for justice on the bullies who have now targeted him at the Academy, because they heard he snaps real good.
One fateful day, when the bullying from Willie and Derek is amped up, Lincoln hears a mysterious voice when he hides in the basement. He hears a mysterious voice and he finds himself unleashing the spirit of Moira Karp, a girl who a few years ago was bullied herself and ultimately killed herself when things went too far. She decides to help Lincoln get revenge against his tormentors but what happens when he realizes that there is more to helping Lincoln and she plans something even more sinister?
Ever get tired of being bullied and wished revenge upon those who tormented you? Well, this film actually goes the supernatural route with Adam Egypt Mortimer making his feature film directorial debut and collaborating with screenwriter/author Brian DeLeeuw on a film that not only amps up the insanity of the film but adds some intricate twists in the film that seem to be unexpected but keeps the pacing of the film going until its climax.
This will go down as a very hard watch, despite the simple concept behind everything, being something we have seen plenty of times. The performances in the film are fine, with Ronen Rubinstein being the strongest in the leading role. As the one character that seems to be calmer despite the anger his character is going through.
In some ways Some Kind of Hate does feel like a missed opportunity to create something a little deeper for the audience, especially with a topic that we can relate to. What we get instead is a film that wants to create a slasher monster, and in Moira they actually do that pretty well. If you want a fairly entertaining horror film for Halloween, Some Kind of Hate is well worth a watch.
Key to the decision to launch a civil rights investigation, a precursor to a possible federal hate crime charge, is the fact that the shooting happened in a place of worship, legal experts told The Tennessean.

Early Sunday morning, 49 people were killed and 53 others injured when a gunman opened fire at a crowded gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida. It was the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history, and it came just one year after a white gunman opened fired during a Bible study at a black church in Charleston, South Carolina, killing nine people. The Florida shooting once again raises questions about gun violence, hate crimes, and what lawmakers are prepared to do to prevent the next mass shooting.
MS. JOHNSON: So at base this administration already tried and put a lot of capital after the killings of 20 school children in Newtown, Connecticut toward a background check bill and some other measures. That did not succeed in Congress. Congress wound up not doing anything with regard to that issue. So what this administration has done in the meantime is pose what it perceives to be some common-sense gun regulations that it can do via executive fiat. Those are not really moving the dial though, Gwen. And what the president said today was we need the American people to rise up and influence and lean on their members of Congress to try to break a stalemate, to the extent one exists, on gun regulations.
The FBI recorded a drop in hate crimes in 2021, but the year's tally may not give a true account of hate crimes in the United States as thousands of law enforcement agencies were absent from the accounting.
The participation drop-off is due to a transition from a legacy crime reporting system that has existed in various forms since the 1920s to a more sophisticated reporting system that captures specific details of a crime. It allows the FBI and researchers to extract deeper analysis from crime statistics. For example, FBI data in 2021 showed that approximately 80% of homicides nationwide were committed with a firearm. That kind of data point wouldn't have been possible under the previous system.
But thousands of law enforcement agencies, including some of the biggest in the country like New York and Los Angeles, have lagged in the transition that began in 2016 to the new National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS).
In a news release, the Justice Department said "data cannot reliably be compared across years" as "several of the nation's largest law enforcement agencies, as well as some states, did not make the transition." As more law enforcement agencies transition to the new system, the department said, it would be able to "provide a richer and more complete picture of hate crimes nationwide."
But some researchers cast doubt on the FBI's ability to capture the true extent of hate crime in the United States even when more agencies are reporting their data, arguing that the issue runs deeper than the adoption of a new technology.
"People generally don't report crimes to the police. And for hate crimes, a lot of victims might not know they're a victim of a hate crime," says Jacob Kaplan, a researcher at Princeton's School of Public and International Affairs. "So even if 100% of agencies reported every hate crime they had and tried to really investigate everything, perceived hate crime, you're still going to be missing out on a potentially extremely large number of victims."
"There's 200,000 to 300,000 hate crime incidents in a given year and the FBI data records less than 10,000 of them," says Eaven Holder, who authored a peer-reviewed study examining 18 years between the two data sets. "Estimates from the National Crime Victimization Survey suggests that 40 to 50% of all hate crimes go unreported to police."
"For a hate crime to be reported, there needs to be evidence of bias that plays at least a small part in the crime," Kaplan notes. "And then the police need to have actual evidence, not just like, 'I think I was the victim of a hate crime.' They need some kind of evidence that suggests that bias was a motivating factor."
I keep expecting some fella to go up to a podium and announce, "Hey, everyone, the brown Maalox that is circulating around is not too good." Then they would all listen to "Sugar Magnolia," accuse each other of being fascists, and go home. Anyway, it looks alarming, and maybe not as much fun as three days of peace and music, but it's still kind of reassuring to know that you might take the people out of the '60s, but you can't take the '60s out of the people.
They still get together and declare, in no uncertain terms, what they want. I don't claim to know who's doing what, who's financing what, all I know is that people can be united in anger and opposition, or united in peace and togetherness, and either way, it's really something to see. 041b061a72
