Guillermo Del Toro is a very creative filmmaker, so watching him do a movie where people break out into wild and suddenly vicious violence toward one another should be a real treat. Joblo.com says that Del Toro’s latest is “Haters”, based on the book “Hater” by David Moody. The description for the film is wild, too. Check it out below.
Society is rocked by a sudden increase in the number of violent assaults on individuals. Christened ‘Haters’ by the media, the attackers strike without warning. Their attacks are brutal, remorseless and extreme. There are no apparent links between the Haters or their victims and no obvious reason for their violence. In seconds rational, controlled people become vicious killers. Everyone – irrespective of race, gender, age, sexuality or any other imaginable difference – has the potential to become either a Hater or a victim. This is a terror which knows no boundaries. You can no longer trust anyone, no matter how well you think you know them. You can no longer trust yourself. By the end of today you could be a killer. By the end of today you could be dead.
Sounds a lot like the “rage-infected” zombies of Danny Boyle’s “28 Days Later” movie, minus the whole zombie angle.
