Fun 'Bad Kids Go to Hell' Trailer with Judd Nelson of 'Breakfast Club'
"When he returned, the room was filled with blood." What if The Breakfast Club was a horror movie, almost like Scream? That's kind of the concept of what we have here. It even stars one of the original stars of The Breakfast Club - Judd Nelson, who played John Bender. In Bad Kids Go to Hell, Nelson plays the Headmaster of Crestview Academy, and the film takes place during another detention session. But this time, the six students locked in detention slowly begin to die from "accidents", which sets up this horror tale of suspense and murder. It doesn't look half bad, but the more important question is - does it look half good?
On a frightfully dark and stormy Saturday afternoon, six private school students from Crestview Academy begin to meet horrible fates as they serve out their eight-hour detentions. Is a fellow student to blame, or perhaps Crestview's alleged ghosts are behind these terrible acts? For more, visit the film's Facebook page.
Bad Kids Go to Hell is written and directed by first-time filmmaker Matthew Spradlin, based on his own graphic novel comic series first published in 2009 by Antarctic Press. The screenplay was also co-written by Barry Wernick. This premiered at the Comic-Con Film Festival in July, and also played Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo. Bad Kids Go to Hell will hit limited theaters starting December 7th this winter. Anyone interested?

Looks like it'd be worth checking out. Bit confusing the way it sets it up so that the ghost/ demon is about to make contact though and then just shows a load of clips of them partying and shit.. but yeah, ya never know.

The hellfast club. I love the part when they took the proton packs and shoot the ghosts... oh sorry the trailer was so boring that i made my own movie in my head

if they focus on it being the work of ghosts - i think it looks half good.......if they focus on it being another "crazy person has grudge and kills people" flick, i'd say no good at all.........i like angry ghosts!

I like the tongue-in-cheek jab at the source material with that "feel good 80's movie" line. Hell, even the set layout seems reminiscent of Hughes' movie. But the fact remains that this is a trailer meant to try and capture interest and attention and unfortunately, for me at least, this does not succeed. It just seems like yet another very typical teen horror flick nowadays. While the premise is slightly better than most, it's still not enough to make me want to put down money to see it in the theater. This one looks destined to be seen on the rental circuit.

Honestly it looks decent, the casting of the kids was the most important part and it looks like they got that wrong. Only one kid actually looks like they are in high school.
