Storyline

A group of high school students are sent to after-school Detention for unexplained reasons. There, the teenagers find themselves abandoned and locked in the classroom after their detention teacher leaves, then mysteriously disappears. With night slowly approaching, a thunder storm builds outside. The heavy rain and lightning causes a massive power failure throwing the school into total darkness. Then, strange, haunting images of Ghosts begin to appear in the school. The kids manage to break out of the classroom only to find that the old building has taken on a life of its own, keeping them trapped inside. As they struggle to escape, the teenagers learn about the death of a student back in the 1970's. Slowly, they unravel the history of this tragedy and that they are somehow connected to the student's macabre and untimely death. They will also soon find out that they are being held responsible for this horrific event of the past, and will pay for it with their lives! Written by john stienfield and michael muscal

"Deletion"
9 May 2010 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

If there was "zero" - i'd give it. Definitely I will remember it as one of the worst I've ever seen. Very simple plot made by mixing others. In one sentence: "Ghost of accidentally killed boy comes back after 30 years and revenges..." - I was excited by such plots when I was 8 or 10 maybe - and really there's nothing else: no sense, no reflections, no aim. In 2010 one can expect better special effects than shaking heads and a lot of darkness to cover imperfections. Scary movie? - not in any possible way, "scooby doo" is more scary. This movie should be an example what to do to avoid making a serious faux pas in directory and scenario.
