DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD BLOOD IS TO GET OUT? (by nogodnomasters)
Has anyone else noticed that the amount of zombie films produced in a year has grown on the same graph as the legalization of marihuana? I suspect people are sitting around smoking, brainstorming ideas like, 'Dude, what if we added zombies to "The Breakfast Club?"' Okay, we noticed.This is a fun zombie cult film that starts off with our stereotyped kids in detention and moves on from there. Willow Alexa Nikolas is the goth chick and the voice of reason who comes up with profound zombie metaphors. Eddie Jacob Zachar is the picked on geek, who doesn't have asthma and <more>
is not a level 18 wizard. Janet Christa B. Allen is our popular head cheerleader with Brad Jayson Blair as her jock/ROTC boyfriend who claims he is going to "officer's boot camp" after high school. Jimmy Max Adler is another jock who follows Brad. Ash Justin Chon is a likeable skateboard stoner who sells jocks Midal and tells them it is hash that won't show up on a drug test.The film gives us a very quick character build up before the zombie attack. Character is later developed in the library, considered a safe haven "not a single student would be caught dead there" . What made this film good was the dialog...."Stop taunting the undead!" And the attention to background details such as the large number of pencils stuck in the ceiling in detention and the sign in the background "Teen Sexual Awareness Week" like they need one.I got several howls out of this feature. Good old fashion fun.Parental Guide: F-bombs, near sex. Brief magazine nudity. Christa B. Allen in bra getting groped
The Breakfast Club--with zombies! (by emmarosemailey)
I took my brothers and saw this movie over the summer at a local film festival and LOVED it. I'm a big John Hughes fan and a huge indie enthusiast, so this flick was right up my alley. The story was great and totally relatable, much like the way many of Hughes' films were and still are to just about anyone who's ever had to deal with the awkward, where-do-i-fit-in-the-world, purgatory that is high school. The writer and director do a great job of taking on a lot of pretty touchy subjects and adding more than a few dashes of hilarity to them, whether through a character's <more>
self deprecation or the irony of an entire situation. And if you're a big zombie fiend like my brothers are you'll love it even more than I did. They've already told all of their friends, and I've told all of mine, and none of us can wait to see it again.
I caught an early screening of Detention of the Dead a few months ago in LA. This is a very funny and engaging take on the zombie-comedy genre by director Alex Craig Mann. I enjoyed the performances, mainly Jacob Zachar's as the nerdy guy fighting the zombie apocalypse and still finding time to win over the popular cheerleader's heart. Alexa Nicholas and Justin Chon also stand out among the cast members. The movie does not take itself too seriously but it's a great popcorn flick. This is the kind of movie that provides entertainment by following a simple but effective storyline <more>
Breakfast Club meets Dawn of the Dead and some memorable scenes. It only gets a 9 because I'd love to see more of that rat.
A fun little treat for zombie lovers! (by little-dave23)
I was lucky enough to see "Detention of the Dead" at this year's FrightFest. Honestly, I went in not knowing what I should expect. I had only seen a couple teasers, and they really didn't do too much for me, so I didn't exactly have any expectations. It's such a simple basis that happens to be taken beyond that. A handful of kids are in detention...when a zombie outbreak hits. At first, I was thrown off by how cliché each character was. We have the nerd, the feisty goth, the stoner, the good looking jock bully, his meat-head friend, and of course the hot <more>
cheerleader. It's like they were all taken straight from "The Breakfast Club". Then it hit me...this is the joke! Just like those preps in "Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil". This feel and tone was supposed to be of the classic Hughs films...and it worked so perfectly! The gore scale on this flick is great. For a movie that I hear had a low budget, they sure made due. The zombies looked sweet and there are some great and gory moments. I feel like this flick is also a gift for us zombie fans. It is packed with homages and references that made me giddy. I heard a lot of complaints from people, at Glasgow, that it wasn't scary. Here's the thing...I don't think scares were their biggest priority. Is it filled with tons of amazing zombie gore? Hell yes! Awesome zombies? Yes. But I think this is more-so a...dare I say light hearted ? ...comedy...that happens to be centered in a zombie apocalypse. The cast was great. Jacob Zachar Eddie has yet again created a wonderfully likable nerd character. I found myself both feeling embarrassed for Eddie, at times, and rooting for him. Alexa Nikolas Willow was so likable as the feisty and intellectual goth chick. I kept thinking...I'd be sticking with her, in this situation! Justin Chon Ash was so completely ridiculous as the stupid stoner...but I loved every second of his screen time. Everyone was great. As funny and gore packed as this movie is, it actually has a lot of sweet moments, and in a zombie movie...it works! I cannot wait to own this film!
Wholly enjoyable and entertaining zombie-comedy (by kannibalcorpsegrinder)
Forced into detention together,a widely-varied group of students are forced to come face-to-face with their own insecurities in order to repel a zombie outbreak at the school.This turned out to be quite a fun and rousing mixture of horror and comedy that works surprisingly well considering the high risk of detrimental flaws here. The fact that the whole film rests on fulfilling clichés and then twisting them does tend to fall short at times, because it is doing nothing more than utilizing the same exact tropes and storied characters that have been a part of the genre for years now and then <more>
turns them into exactly what you would expect would happen because you have to invert the clichés, resulting in nothing new or groundbreaking despite acting like it is. The low-budget doesn't help matters much either with a rather pedestrian look overall to the zombies who look decent enough but never really pack that special push to really sell them, settling instead on colored contacts and swollen features to sell their zombified state, and that's not entirely convincing throughout. As well, the lower-budget-means are fully viewed on the swarming scenes, which lack the massive size of most normal zombie hordes as well as failing to really exploit the type of blood and gore that come to be expected in such a scenario despite several rather gruesome moments which signal the start of what it does right. The fact that the zombie outbreak is so early on in the film, barely ten minutes in when the first victim turns into the ravenous being, makes for a rather pleasing amount of action in this one with a rapid series of encounters that are fun, exciting and quite thrilling, working the best when utilizing the comedy in the intense situations. Being forced to sneak past a group of zombies gnawing on a corpse without suspicion and doing so successfully only to be rousing by the cheers and congratulations of the rest of the survivors, fending off zombies by hurling library books at them or continually bashing them over the head with baseball bats but always loosing their grip on the bat are just some of the wonderful comedic scenes throughout that are not only hysterically funny and logical in such a situation but do so to make the non-stop action all the more fun. Coupled with some of the great gore gags when they occur and a rousing amount of heart, it's a lot more fun than what it seems like.Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language, nude pictures and drug use.
"Detention of the Dead" Mashes Together "Night of the Living Dead" and "The Breakfast Club" (by ersinkdotcom)
Do you remember all the typical garbage you had to deal with in high school? You had to wear the right clothes, hang out with the right crowd, and get all your homework done so you could pass. All those seem hard enough to handle. Now add to your laundry list of things to do "Escape from my fellow students who have turned into zombies." High School was bad enough before. Imagine having to attend "Detention of the Dead."A nerd, a jock, a cheerleader, a bully, a goth, and a stoner are stuck together in detention. Sounds familiar, doesn't it? It's just a typical <more>
afternoon in high school until ravenous zombies overtake the hallways. Now the motley crew of teens must put aside their differences in order to survive a terrifying night of the walking dead."Detention of the Dead" is exactly what it looks and sounds like. It's "The Breakfast Club" and "Night of the Living Dead" blended together. It's impressive how well Director/Co-Writer Alex Craig Mann takes a zombie apocalypse and uses it for the backdrop of a film about six high schoolers from different walks of life. Not only are they struggling to fight the stereotypes, but now they have to save themselves from being devoured by masses of teenage walking dead.There are several ways "Detention of the Dead" pays homage to "The Breakfast Club." Each of the characters here are basically updates of the ones in John Hughes' legendary film. At one point, the kids climb through the air ducts, just like Judd Nelson's character did in the classic 1980's film. No matter how tough Nelson's character was, he would have freaked out and ran in the other direction if he came face- to-face with these flesh-eaters.It's nice to see a movie where practical effects take front and center. Every scene of zombie carnage uses real props, giving the film a classic flavor sorely missing these days. The makeup for the living dead is good for the most part, with only a few missteps here and there when it comes to detail. This minor fault can be overlooked if you take into account how many people had to have makeup applied. Add to that the fact this is a low-budget flick shot in a small time frame.The cast of "Detention of the Dead" is an impressive mix of television and movie stars. Christa B. Allen of "Revenge" plays the cheerleader. "Greek's" Jacob Zachar portrays the nerd. Alexa Nikolas of "Zoey 101" and "The Walking Dead" takes on the role of the goth girl. Jayson Blair from "The Hard Times of RJ Berger" and "The New Normal" is the bully. "The Twilight Saga's" Justin Chon plays the stoner. Max Adler of "Glee" portrays the jock."Detention of the Dead" is unrated, but if put before the MPAA would be given an R. There's plenty of gore and bloody violence to satisfy bloodhounds. The language is what you would expect from a movie set in a high school. There's no nudity, but plenty of adult situations and sexual humor.Zombie films are a dime a dozen these days, and they're all preaching some type of serious social commentary. "Detention of the Dead" rises above the multitudes of "Night of the Living Dead" and "The Walking Dead" impersonators by injecting a dose of comedy and relatable characters to the recipe. Everybody went to high school and they all fell into one of the social circles represented in the movie. The only difference here is that viewers probably didn't have run-ins with zombies stumbling through the hallways. Okay, I'm not counting the potheads or druggies shuffling by as you ran to class before the tardy bell rings.
