D: Matthew Spradlin
C: Cameron Deane Stewart, Augie Duke, Ali Faulkner, Roger Edwards, Amanda Alch, Marc Donato, Ben Browder, Judd Nelson, Chanel Ryan, Jeffrey Schmidt
P: Six high school students stuck in Saturday afternoon detention for 8 hours start to fall victim to a series of bizarre accidents in the school's seemingly haunted library.
Mishmash of horror and comedy with references from The Breakfast Club, Carrie, Less Than Zero, Twilight and even Scooby Doo thrown in for good measure. Bad Kids Go to Hell is one of those films that's messy, disjointed, uneven and in general just all over the place. There's too many twists and turns. The plot is hard to follow at times. The film's slapstick elements feel completely out of place with the film's referential tone.
Bad Kids Go to Hell has a lot of ideas, too many in fact. While a certain idea may sound good as a stand alone idea, you have to ask yourself this "Does this idea fit within the context of the film that I am creating?". The people behind Bad Kids Go to Hell failed to bring an editing eye to the material. [R] 91 mins.
