It's been nearly a month since we covered anything on new slasher flick 'Detention' from director Joseph Kahn ('Torque') but finally thanks to it's screening at this months SXSW event in Texas we can take a gander at the trailer! It kicks off like any other teen comedy romp and then swiftly moves into sinister tongue-in-cheek horror action. Josh Hutcherson ('Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant'), Shanley Caswell, hottie Spencer Locke - below ('Resident Evil: Extinction'), Alison Woods, Parker Bagley, Walter Perez, Aaron David Johnson and of course the hilarious(!?) Dane Cook. Mark Palermo co-wrote the script along with director Kahn. Check out the plot and trailer below.
"The film follows a 17-year-old who is given detention on the night of her prom. Over the course of the night her friends are murdered by a fictional horror movie icon. It's said to be in the vein of Scream with elements of Back to the Future (time travel is involved) and classic John Hughes teen films from the 80's."
