Story


Detention is a teen horror-comedy where the local students of Grizzly Lake must survive their final year of high school. Standing in their way is a slasher movie killer who has seemingly come to life. It becomes a race against time to stop the killer and save the world - if only they can get out of detention. The Detention cuts through prom. Most of them don't have dates anyway.

“..exhausting before its first few minutes of whip-pans, smash cuts, coarsely self-referential jokes and on-screen text visuals is over..”
by Robert Abele [Los Angeles Times]
“..for 20 minutes, i's one of the worst movies I've ever seen..”
by Wesley Morris [Boston Globe]
“..it all comes back to a detention class where teen stereotypes are celebrated and slaughtered, often simultaneously and always snarkily..”
by John Hartl [Seattle Times]
