Recently I posted a snide review for the trailer of the upcoming film ‘The Hatred’. After receiving a polite and gracious talking-to by the film’s director, Michael G. Kehoe, I was reminded that making movies is super hard and filmmakers bust their ass to make something they’re passionate about.
It’s all too easy to snipe about movies when their creators are light years away, but it’s a whole nother kettle of fish when they deign to call you out for bitching about a movie you haven’t even seen.
Therefore I stand before you a humbled woman. Lest you think I’m sucking up to try to further my career, I have to admit that I missed a really cool thing in the trailer the first time I watched it. When writing my piece I also failed to notice that David Naughton plays WALTER, not a waiter, as I previously stated. So I was not on my A game that day. Furthermore, Mr. Kehoe was kind enough to spend the better part of an hour discussing the movie with me (article to follow soon), and he spoke of how he made sure his female protagonists were all smart. Which earned him major brownie points with me!
If you missed my article the first time round, the movie revolves around four college students staying in a house with a terrifying backstory. Here’s the trailer:
The cast is also extremely exciting. Aside from the less experienced but talented leads, the movie features Amanda Wyss (‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’, ‘The Id’), David Naughton (‘An American Werewolf in London’), and Andrew Divoff (‘The Wishmaster’, ‘Graveyard Shift’).
‘The Hatred’ is hitting theaters September 12.
