He's been told that if he doesn't get a wife by Christmas Eve, then a process of de-Santa-fication will rob him of his beard, belly and job.

A new slasher movie is on it's way from Caliber Media and Revek Entertainment. 'Some Kind of Hate' is the bringing together of revenge and the supernatural as a bullied kid summons a spirit to deal with his tormentors. It's good to see writer/director Adam Egypt Mortimer trying something a little bit different with the genre but it does sound like a familiar amalgamation of past horror features that have already treaded similar ground - such as Brit horror 'Tormented' amongst others. But still our hopes are high. 'Some Kind of Hate' stars Ronen Rubinstein, the gorgeous Grace Phipps ('Fright Night'), Sierra McCormick, Michael Polish, Noah Segan ('Looper'), Spencer Breslin ('The Happening'), Maestro Harrell ('Suburgatory'), Jasper Polish ('The Astronaut Farmer'), Jeremy Hawkins, Brando Eaton and the sexy Lexi Atkins -below ('Zombeavers'). »
