Honestly, I don’t know if I’m dense or what, but for the life of me I still have no clear idea what director Matthew Spradlin’s “Bad Kids go to Hell” movie is all about. (I was similarly stump last year when I posted the teaser trailer.) I mean, the synopsis (below) sorta answers some of it, but shouldn’t the trailer also provide a guideline to the film’s, you know, intentions? So what happens, they kill each other? Ghosts kill them? Monsters? Ben Browder’s janitor character? I haven’t a clue. That’s good, right? The movie is totally mysterious. Then again, it doesn’t actually convince me if I want to spend two hours watching it either, so you know, that’s probably not so good. But hey, maybe it’s just me. Your mileage may vary. Although I like the fact that none of the “high school kids” in this movie actually look like they’ve been in a high school in probably a decade or more.
Six private school high school kids find themselves stuck in detention on a frightfully dark and stormy Saturday afternoon. During their 8 hour incarceration, each of the six kids falls victim to a horrible “accident” until only one of them remains.
Starring Amanda Alch, Marc Donato, Augie Duke, Roger Edwards, Ali Faulkner, Cameron Deane Stewart with Ben Browder as Max and Judd Nelson as Headmaster Nash. Jeffrey Schmidt plays Dr. Day. Chanel Ryan plays Ms. Gleason..
According to the filmmakers, this trailer was cut specifically ahead of the film’s “private screening” at the San Diego Comic Con on July 13, 2012.
