Along with their announcements of films that will be showing (some premiering) at their festival later next month, SXSW also has full pages that include synopsis and images from some of their movies. One of them is an official first still from Joseph Kahn’s horror-comedy “Detention”, starring Josh Hutcherson, Dane Cook, Shanley Caswell, Spencer Locke, Aaron David Johnson, Walter Perez, Erica Shaffer, Parker Bagley, and Alison Woods.
Detention is a teen horror-comedy where the local students of Grizzly Lake must survive their final year of high school. Standing in their way is a slasher movie killer who has seemingly come to life. It becomes a race against time to stop the killer and save the world – if only they can get out of detention. The Detention cuts through prom. Most of them don’t have dates anyway.
