For four outcast teens, summer detention means being assigned to clean their high school after a horrific incident. But they are not alone; a macabre gang wearing guises of The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse - Famine, Pestilence, War and Death - has locked them inside and is hunting them through the school's ravaged hallways. As the four students battle to survive, each must confront the supernatural echoes of past traumas they have struggled to forget - and may be condemned to relive.

Did You Know?


The first scene filmed took place in the basement of the school building in a locker room space which was only big enough for three actors and a handful of crew. The last scene to be filmed included over a hundred extras, police and rescue cars, and an exterior jib shot at magic hour. See more »

Deserves More Love
13 November 2020 | by davidhagensteinSee all my reviews

This movie really is better than the 3.1 and the reviews led you to believe. I usually give a movie like this or this genre about 15 to 20 minutes to engage me enough to continue to watch it. I was actually going to give up on this movie within that time frame but then got drown in. The reason for this was the cgi and green screen work up to 15 minutes or so was extremely amateurish. Then the movie found another gear and didn't stop excellerating till the end. I loved the story line even though at times it gets a little confusing. I believe this movie deserves to be watched for what it is and where it goes. Definitely needs more than a 3.1 rating.
