Music video director Joseph Kahn clearly has a lot of confidence in his “genre bending” horror Detention, for he is bravely releasing the film in US cinemas on the same day as The Cabin in the Woods. However, Detention actually looks very very good indeed, and just might give The Cabin in the Woods a run for its money!
Sadly there are no release details yet for the UK release for the film, however we do have the brand new theatrical trailer right here for you. Prepare to be blown away by a truly awesome trailer for what sounds like a terrific horror. The film takes in a lot of genres, including horror, sci-fi, comedy AND time travel, so there is no doubt that this could well be one of the most intriguing horrors of the year.

Kahn directed the film, and also wrote it with Mark Palermo. Amongst the cast are Josh Hutcherson (fresh from The Hunger Games), Dane Cook, Spencer Locke, Shanley Caswell, Aaron Perilo, Parker Bagley and Brooke Haven.
‘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.
