Hate Crime (2012)
Review by Michael Mahoney

6 / 10
The plot of this found footage film is simple. A Jewish family (mother, father, and three children) are new to the neighborhood, and are attacked by three brutal Neo-Nazis.

We have some pretty shocking scenery in this film, the two most shocking being the surprising death of a character early on and one of the male children being forced to rape his mother. There's an eye-gouging in there too, along with a swastika being burned into a boy's cheek, but the two scenes I mentioned before strike me as far more brutal. Really, there's not much going on here - the break-in happens literally two minutes into the movie, and from there on out, it's a bloodbath.

The three perpetrators are despicable people (and on cocaine half the time), and their actors do the job well. The family is sympathetic not because we know much about them, but because of the heinous acts being done toward them (during the credits, though, we're given a little glimpse into the family via video of them moving to their new house).

My one gripe is the ending - after all of this is done, we're presented with the "This video was found by someone. Those who committed these crimes were arrested, and are facing multiple life sentences." Instead of playing it off as the movie it is, they make it out to be a real-life event, which just annoys the hell of out me. If found footage movies stopped using this tactic as much as they seem to, I'd be a much happier guy.

Hate Crime is a shocking film, no doubt. I got very little joy out of watching it. It does what it means to (at the end, it lists some statistics on hate crimes), but it's not a movie that you'd watch multiple times, I feel. Just once is enough. 6.5/10 (rounded down to 6/10 to fit site's format).
