All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

Detention (2012)

Starring: Shanley Caswell, Josh Hutcherson, Dane Cook
Director: Joseph Kahn

After classmates start getting murdered the teens under suspicion get detention in order to figure out the killer.

My Take:
This movie is definitely original. You will either love or hate the way it seamlessly mashes up genres. At times it's a high school homage to the John Hughes teen films of the 80's, other times it's a slasher riff, then other times it's sort of a slapstick comedy. Throw in time traveling, and body switching there seems to be something for every one. Smartly written dialog. Well acted. Funny.

Rating: So Good
