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

just a Bad Bad Movie, not Good Bad
10 May 2012 | by Ashman711711See all my reviews

the two stars is because I'm feeling kind. I first wanted to watch this from seeing a preview where it looked like a satire on the teen slasher genre. Instead what we are served with is an incomprehensible plot (even by the ghost wanting revenge premise)It starts out promising enough with prank gone wrong in the past cliché' then fast forward to the present and it goes downhill from there.

We get the typical stereotyped students a la' the Breakfast Club, a mysterious teacher who we all know, she knows more than she's letting on, a mix of possessed student and murdering spirit, also a tarnished memory of Carradine by appearing in this dredge of a flick.

The effects were bad even for the budget- more reminiscent of early Syfy channel stuff. the plot which could have been good, became a convoluted mess. I took me some patience to get through this movie, the boredom and just waiting for the GD end can make one border on the suicidal. in short it's not worth watching even to mock(unlike such treasures as Troll2) unless you're brain dead, don't waste your time.
