Joseph Kahn’s Detention is a crazy sounding film that no trailer can do justice.
This is still a great trailer. It starts with the usual teen film set in school, goes into slasher territory and then goes sci-fi.
Kind of a like a Breakfast Club, Scream, Back to the Future, The Fly, The Burning, Galaxy Quest type thing.
It’s another year at Grizzly Lake High School for Riley (Shanley Caswell), a clever but cynical social outcast who is harboring an unrequited love for ironically named hipster Clapton (Josh Hutcherson, The Hunger Games) who is in turn, head over heels for Ione (Spencer Locke), a beautiful but self-absorbed cheerleader. All four are waiting out their final year of high school, but it’s anyone’s guess if they’ll ever see graduation, as a serial killer known as Cinderhella is on the loose and preying on Grizzly Lake’s student body. The principal (Dane Cook) is certain Cinderhella is a disgruntled student and figures he can keep the prom from turning into a bloodbath by putting the likely suspects in all-day detention on the day of the big dance.
Detention is getting a limited release in 10 AMC theaters on April 13.
