What’s Going On In This Bad Kids Go To Hell Trailer?!

Ok, so I’m not totally sure what to make of this Bad Kids Go To Hell movie just yet. We were sent the trailer via email; its got a catchy title, but is it horror? Do I post about it on the site? Or throw it under the “Beyond Fright” banner? At first glance of the following trailer, it looks like the filmmaker’s are attempting to do a modern day version of The Breakfast Club; hell they even have Judd Nelson in there in one of the adult roles. But then it looks like it takes a rather dark turn. Did they conjure up a nasty entity? Or is one of them killing the rest? Regardless, I’m not sure how to classify this flick but the press release under this video calls it The Grudge meets The Breakfast Club. So I figured it warranted a view. Check

"Judy Moody" and the Rarity of Indie Family Films

  • IFC
When John Schultz was in elementary school, his favorite classroom activity was when the teacher would hand out a vocabulary list of 20 words and he would have to write a story that employed all of them. "I loved that challenge of here's what you have to work with. Make it work," Schultz said.

It shouldn't be all that surprising then that the director is making his third indie feature, but it is refreshing that with this week's "Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer," he's aiming to entertain today's elementary school kids by working in the indie world's least prolific genre, the family film. Oddly, in the considerably more ungoverned area of the medium that's wide open to personal coming-of-age stories and cinematic anarchy, few are made with the intention of appealing to all audiences.

Less unusual has been Schultz's career path, though it still might strike some as peculiar.
