Pick of the Week

Detention Box Art

Detention

Josh Hutcherson stars in a genre-bending hipster teen horror-comedy from writer/director Joseph Kahn. The students of Grizzly Lake must prevent themselves from becoming the victims of a Cinderhella, a slasher-movie villain who has seemingly come to life and is preying on the school's student body. As the clock ticks and the bodies pile up, the likely suspects are embroiled in a race against time to stop Cinderhella -- encountering body-switching, time travle and a human-insect hybrid along the way --- and ultimately save the world... if only they can get out of detention.
