Exclusive Poster for Joseph Kahn’s Detention

You probably best known director Joseph Kahn as the man behind the delightfully terrible Torque, a movie even Kahn mocks in his new picture Detention. The trailer for Detention is bizarre enough to make the film worth a look as it seems to be dancing in between Scream, The Breakfast Club, and Disney Channel made-for-tv movies. Even the synopsis doesn't make much sense: Detention, is a teen horror-comedy where the local students of Grizzly Lake must survive their final year of high school. Standing in their way is a slasher movie killer who has seemingly come to life. It becomes a race against time to stop the killer and save the world - if only they can get out of detention. The Detention cuts through prom. Most of them don't have dates anyway. We've been sent the poster for the film and it features a drawing of a bear with a skull for a mouth.
