Storyline

The Breakfast Club meets The Grudge in this sexy, dark comedy-thriller! Six prep school kids from Crestview Academy, home to the spoiled offspring of society's elite, find themselves stuck in detention on a frightfully dark and stormy Saturday afternoon. During their 8 hour incarceration, each of the six kids falls victim to a horrible "accident" until only one of them remains. As each of these spoiled rich kids bites the dust, the story takes on a series of humorous and frantic twists and turns. Is one of the kids secretly evening the school's social playing field? Or have the ghosts of prestigious Crestview Academy finally come to punish the school's worst (and seemingly untouchable) brats? One thing is for sure...Daddy's money can't save them now. (Based on the best selling indie comic book series/graphic novel of the same name.) Written by Barry "Bazza" Wernick and Matthew Spradlin

Trivia

Amanda Alch, who plays the nerd, Megan, did the classroom strip scene wearing pasties. She then came back after the scene was shot to have her nipples photographed so they could CG her own nipples back on her breasts in post production. So, although people claim that the nudity wasn't real in the movie, what you see is actually the real thing! The movie's Twitter account did a funny story about it in April to promote the DVD release. See more »

Where do mediocre movies go?
12 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A group of pretentious rich kids serve detention at a privileged prep school where they must contend with a series of 'accidents' that may or may not be the work of an Indian ghost in this fairly competent horror version of The Breakfast Club.

Fairly well-acted and I rarely found my thoughts wandering, truth be told the film did become kid of ploddy during the middle, but I found it enjoyable nonetheless. Also in the interest of full disclosure, I've never read the graphic novel that this film is based on but now I'm interested in doing just that. My main gripe would be that Judd Nelson didn't get nearly enough screen time for my liking.
