Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games) and Dane Cook (Good Luck Chuck) star in the instant cult classic Detention, coming to Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital July 31st from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. In this comedy-horror hybrid, a group of high school seniors must prevent themselves from becoming the victims of a slasher movie villain terrorizing their small town of Grizzly Lake. Along the way they encounter body switching, time travel, and even a human-insect hybrid. The film also stars Spencer Locke (TV’s “Cougar Town”) and Shanley Caswell (upcoming The Warren Files) and features music by The Kills, Pussycat Dolls, 50 Cent, Hole, C&C Music Factory and Public Enemy.
The Blu-Ray and DVD are packed with bonus materials, including a feature-length featurette. “Cheat Mode: The Unbelievably Mind Melting Making of Detention” provides detailed insights from cast and crew on the making of the film as well as trivia throughout. In addition, the Blu-Ray includes three exclusive bonus features: in “Fight Rehearsal” the crew rehearses one of the key fight scenes from the film; the “Riffing with Dane” featurette provides a montage of Dane Cook goofs; and last are the screen testes for Shanley Caswell, Aaron David Johnson and Yves Bright.
“Josh Hutcherson, Dane Cook and Spencer Locke star in Detention, a hipster teen horror-comedy, in which the students of Grizzly Lake must survive their final year of high school. Standing in their way is Cinderhella, a slasher movie killer who has seemingly come to life and is preying on the school’s student body. As the clock ticks and the bodies pile up, the likely suspects are embroiled in a race against time to stop Cinderhella and ultimately save the world … if only they can get out of Detention.”
Detention was directed by Joseph Kahn and written by Kahn and Mark Palermo. It was produced by MaryAnn Tanedo and Richard Weager, with Bob Abramoff, Josh Hutcherson, David Kang, Clayton Reaser and Vernon Reaser serving as executive producers.
