Detention (2011) is a sci-fi/horror/comedy film directed by Joseph Kahn for Samuel Goldwyn Films. Written by Joseph Kahn & Mark Palermo. Starring Josh Hutcherson, Shanley Caswell, Spencer Locke, and Dane Cook.

Josh Hutcherson, Dane Cook and Spencer Locke star in Detention, a hipster, teen horror-comedy where the local students of Grizzly Lake must survive their final year of high school. Standing in their way is Cinderhella, a slasher-movie killer who has seemingly come to life and is preying on the school’s student body. As the clock ticks and the bodies pile up, the likely suspects are embroiled in a race against time to stop Cinderhella and ultimately save the world – if only they can get out of Detention.

Rated R. 93 minutes. Watch the official 2012 trailer here …

My thoughts… Detention is a witty, teen comedy… a gory, slasher film with a sci-fi twist… and a self-referential Scream update for a new generation! Detention is like nothing you have ever seen before! Or maybe it’s like everything you’ve ever seen before! Either way, Detention is an insanely brilliant sci-fi/horror/comedy! Oh, and Shanley Caswell is sooo adorable!
