Detention of the Dead


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wS66fv-BXAA


Let me start off by trying to get Chips attention, because Iím thinking heís not all that into horror movies. Well Detention of the Dead is horror/comedy flick and think, The Breakfast Club with a very dark sideÖ zombies.

I was rather pleased to be entertained by Detention of the Dead. I went into it with some hope of, but would not be surprised if it sucked. I donít think it did. Iíd watch this again.

Seriously, all those involved must have tackled this by watching The Breakfast Club over and over and then adapting zombies to the film. With tongue firmly in cheek, they pull off the very hard project of not being too serious and not too silly. Just enough blood, guts and gore for zombie fans, enough humor to entertain both sexes and itís well written, well because it closely follows a classic filmís script. The production value is top notch. The zombies were rather impressive. I was over impressed with the soundtrack. I didnít recognize a song, but loved just about everything they played.

If a studio is going to attempt reboots of sort, this is a prime example of doing it right. Different than the original, but a good, solid, entertaining story.

I highly recommend for goofy, yet entertaining fun.
