Bullied teenagers are a time-honored staple in horror movies. with Carrie perhaps being the gold standard of the genre. The latest example is Adam Egypt Mortimer’s film about a troubled youth who gets uninvited help against his tormentors from the ghost of a teenage girl who was driven to suicide under similar circumstances. To paraphrase a famous line from an old political debate–I’ve seen Carrie. I love Carrie. and Some Kind of Hate is no Carrie.
The film’s protagonist is the heavy metal-loving but still sensitive and soulful Lincoln (Ronen Rubenstein. brooding convincingly). who seems to invite abuse from his fellow schoolmates by his presence alone. When he turns the tables on an attacker by stabbing him in the eye with a fork. Lincoln is sent to the ominously named “Mind’s Eye Academy.” a school for wayward teens located in the desert. run by the cult leaderish Jack (Michael Polish. director of such films as Twin Falls Idaho and the recent 90 Minutes in Heaven).
