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

Enjoyable and entertaining effort
5 November 2012 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

Stuck in a high school detention class during a torrential rain-storm, a group of friends find themselves subjected to a series of ghostly visits and incidents in an attempt to seek retribution for a past incident involving their parents and try to get out before they're all killed off.

This one turned out to be a pretty nice haunted-school style ghost film. What works best here is that it's filled with a ton of clichés but never really manages to make them noticeable until pretty late in the film. That the school location is actually pretty creepy and manages to hold a place of suspense is a bright spot here, as it comes off as a perfect spot for ghostly activity and makes for some good times with it stalking the group throughout the grounds. There are some problems, though, in that the reason for possession in most cases goes unexplained when a twist late in the film makes it totally worthless as well as taking way too long in it's set-ups when they tease something only to not deliver as well as not come through on the kill, making some scenes seem to last forever yet the film is really quite brief. Overall, though, it's really not that bad.

Rated R: Graphic Violence and Graphic Language.
