You’ve heard quite a bit about Joseph Kahn’s mindf*ck of a slasher, Detention, which David Harley raved about out of SXSW. While the film is more of a pop culture slap-in-the-face, the slasher starring Josh Hutcherson, Dane Cook, Shanley Caswell, Spencer Locke, Parker Bagley, Alison Woods, Walter Perez and Carrie Wiita is quite violent. Behold a bit of proof in the first blood image below.
“ ‘Detention’ tells the story of the senior class at Grizzly Lake high school. The road to graduation is never an easy one, but it’s further complicated for these students by the arrival of a slasher movie killer who has seemingly come to life. The only ones who can stop the killer are a handful of students, but they’ll have to cut out of detention if they’re to stand a chance at saving the world.”
It will screen at the upcoming Film4 FrightFest in London.
