Alex Craig Mann’s “Detention of the Dead” has been floating around in the ether for a while now. Heck, I think it was made before star Christa B. Allen (the hot cheerleader in the movie) even landed the ABC show “Revenge” (though of course, I could be wrong). All I know is, I’ve been hearing about this movie for a long time , but it looks like it’s now finally getting its due.
The film is currently scheduled for a theatrical release on Friday, June 28, 2013 at the Laemmle NoHo 7 in Los Angeles, CA. Only that one theater, apparently. But don’t fret. If you’re hoping to catch “Detention of the Dead”, it’ll be available on VOD on Tuesday, June 18, 2013.
Check out a new trailer and poster for the film below.
Comedy and Horror unite in this “The Breakfast Club” meets “Shaun of the Dead” tale about a group of oddball high school students who find themselves trapped in detention with their classmates having turned into a horde of Zombies. Can they put their differences aside and work together to survive the night? Fat chance! This is High School after all.
“Detention of the Dead” stars Jacob Zachar (“Greek”), Alexa Nikolas (“The Walking Dead”), Christa B. Allen (“Revenge”), Jayson Blair (“The New Normal”), Justin Chon (“21 and Over”), and Max Adler (“Glee”).
