The preview looked good. A horror version of the Breakfast Club. I started to get worried though when the main character crashes his car in an empty parking lot. A piece of paper blocked his windshield, then rather than just stop in the empty parking lot, he continued to accelerate and drive around blind until he drove into a light pole. Scary.

The next sign was the incredibly bad CGI cockroaches. Wouldnt it have been better, cheaper and easier to get a couple real cockroaches? Then we meet the main characters. All look like their in their mid 20's or older. The actress with the mega eyebrows playing the prom queen looked anorexic. The goth girl looked real rough especially when her makeup washes off. Like Lindsey Lohan on a bender rough. Both these girls need an intervention. BUT, the headmaster played a good part, the jock, the hot brainy chick, the janitor and Nelson from the original Breakfast Club all do a good job.

Then we get to the flashbacks of the offenses that landed them in detention. This leads to fighting and making up and fighting again and becoming allies off and on repeatedly in the course of like, six minutes.

With 15 minutes to go, I hated the movie. Thought it was horrible. THEN came the big surprise, twist, ending. "what the heck , how do you explain ..?!?!, why would he have...?!?" Wow. Then the very end out of left field and Im talking about the very very end- last thirty seconds. So bad that it made the movie for me. I am definitely going to buy the DVD. Its like a negative times a negative makes a positive I guess.

Now that Ive watched the movie twice, I picked up the addditional subtle clues that I missed the first time. Good premise, huge rationalizations about why the kids cant be rescued, bad CGI effects, completely implausible ending, some funny parts ( intended or otherwise ) Im buying this.

The title of this neat little plot twister is unfortunate. I'm therefore guilty of judging a book by it's cover and this movie by its title. Shame on me. But, I happen to think Ben Browder is a gem of an actor and a canny one, to boot. What could possibly entice him into a bad movie? So I decided to give it a look...and I'm glad I did.

As I said, it has a neat plot twist and some very comic moments to keep the blood and gore from totally taking over. In that regard, the casting of the disabled student is a masterpiece. I'm sure that in one instance, the fact that he looked exactly like Beeker the Muppet was not a coincidence. I did have a problem with the roaches in one respect. Sure, they're like "bad kids" in that they are hard to get rid of, but considering how rich the school is, while the kids may be there, the insects would have been visited by Orkin, I'm sure. If you're a fan of the genre, which I prefer sheer fright to gore, you'll note there is some predictability, but that still isn't a detractor.

"Bad Kids Go to Hell" is a three-quarters polished gem. Give it a watch.

You know the type:

--More funny than scary horror comedy that's a bit resemblant of "The Breakfast Club" on PCP. For the adolescent and adolescent-at-heart.

--Comedic stereotypes of high school kids, lots of schlocky gore, and a little gratuitous skin thrown in.

--"Good bad" film with intentionally bad acting; however, the dialogue and special effects are better than those in many films of this sort.

I wanted to rent "Bachelorette", but Redbox gave me "Bad Kids Go to Hell" instead so I figured why not? The movie opens with five teenagers at an elite high school showing up for Saturday detention, à la "The Breakfast Club". The faculty member overseeing them collects their cell phones then locks them into a beautifully-appointed upper-story school library behind titanium-reinforced doors that cannot be chopped down with an axe. Faster than you can say, "Fire hazard" the kids start turning on each other. Some of them may be in on a dastardly plot, and the library itself may be haunted by the vengeful ghost of an old Indian whose house was razed to build it. The whole thing plays out like a cross between a slasher movie, Scooby Doo and a laugh-free episode of "Strangers with Candy". To the movie's credit I didn't predict every obvious twist at the end, but to its detriment, I didn't care.

What is striking about "Bad Kids Go to Hell" is that it is competently made. The production values are that of a high-end TV movie and, given the limitations of the script, the acting is solid. Even the writing shows a degree of self-awareness: the kids (or more like "kids" because the actors are all in their twenties and look older) communicate in Joss Whedonesque quips which, while not funny, at least display a respectable amount of tongue in cheek. In a bit of meta stunt casting, the school's headmaster is played by original "Breakfast Club" bad-boy, Judd Nelson, hidden behind a trapezoidal beard.
