My Review Of "Hate Crime"
24 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

James Cullen Bressack's "Hate Crime" is the story of a family on the verge. On the verge of frustrations, personal turmoil, and unfortunately for them all – on the verge of a horrific night of brutality. Starring Jody Barton, Nicholas Clark, Greg DePetro, Debbie Diesel, Tim Moran, Ian Roberts, Sloane Morgan Siegel and Maggie Wagner the film opens on the night of the youngest child's birthday. Thinks turn sour when the family is held hostage by masked gunmen. It is a nightmare that feels ripped from the pages of today's newspapers.

Right from the beginning "Hate Crime" is a full throttled intense nightmare that feels awkwardly realistic and brutally honest in it's graphic depiction of some of the truest fears man could conjure. The concept of becoming victims in the sanctity of our own home out of ignorance and hatred. Violated and tormented at the hands of psychotics' is a story all to real and James Cullen Bressack puts you at the scene of the crime with pure – cruel intent that is viciously to the point, a point made perfect. This film makes a statement and opens our eyes to how blatant and evil hatred truly is.

Currently only scheduled for future festival screening "Hate Crime" is just as the title suggests. One hour and twelve minutes of a continuous hate crime that holds on to you until the bloody and gruesome end. (On a personal note I now am fully assured to check my locks at night, just in case I wasn't before). The story that transpires on screen feels almost unscripted. As if Bressack simply told the actors who their characters where and allowed them to run with it bringing the dialogue to a disturbing realism that is disturbingly hypnotic. Even though the acting and the action seem wild and out of control, the sheer power of the scenes unfolding make you feel every second of this film. That was as I assume the intend of the directing. Because no crime nor violent scenario is ever going to feel controlled or be inherently controllable. That is a good thing. Wild and out of control is the only way you could write or direct such a strong subject material and not come off cheesy. "Hate Crime" is a truly terrifying tale that lies in the back of all our minds when we shut our doors as the sun goes down. This is one intense and tragic and captivating film in it's graphic gritty realness. "Hate Crime" is one to watch. A truly insane psychotic and powerful Indie movie with one equally powerful message. If you get a chance then I suggest you see this film.
