Picking up an awful lot of positive vibes over recent weeks, Adam Egypt Mortimer’s Some Kind Of Hate gets its UK premiere at Frightfest on Saturday, August 29.

Billed (by the director himself) as a ‘feminist slasher movie’, the flick had Fangoria magazine drooling at a recent screening, with the influential mag describing the film as being ‘guaranteed to please any and every type of horror fan’.

That sounds good to us – and here’s the synopsis:

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.

Anything that mentions ‘blood-soaked revenge’ gets my vote, and the new trailer suggests something a little bit different.

Grace Phipps (who also appears in Frightfest entry Tales Of Halloween) stars, alongside the likes of Ronen Rubinstein and Lexi Atkins.

Here’s that trailer:
