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.

Judd Nelson's appearance in BAD KIDS GO TO HELL is quite ironic since this film is a twisted take on Nelson's hit 80s THE BREAKFAST CLUB. The wicked connection is both films are set in a high school detention hall, although the result in BAD KIDS is certainly quite different.
A semi-slasher film, BAD KIDS is enjoyable---there's some dark humor; a somewhat clever plot, though it gets a little contrived at the end. As in most films of this ilk, all the characters are obnoxious and unlikeable and played by actors who haven't been teenagers in a decade.
I also applaud the director for lighting the film so you can see what's going on, unlike many other recent scare flicks.
Overall, BAD KIDS is a cut above the current slashers and makes for a decent rental.

This type of movie is far more campy than your average horror movie. Basically, it's take is on a horror version of "The Breakfast Club". Although the setup & jokes are corny, the special effects are somewhat adequate. With a very long and involved special features segment.

A group of kids are sent to detention. We know who survives. It is shown in the first scene before we digress.

The main cast:

Matt Clark (Cameron Deane Stewart) is the level headed victim of circumstances with a bad boy reputation.

Meagan McDurst (Amanda Alch) is our good girl who had a moment of stress in the classroom.

Tarek Ahmed (Marc Donato) is an unlikeable geeky klepto.

Veronica Harmon (Augie Duke) is our Goth.

Craig Cook (Roger Edwards) is the jock.

Tricia Wilkes (Ali Faulkner) is the plastic with mommy and drug issues.

The beginning also introduces the creepy janitor Max (Ben Browder) and school psychologist Dr. Day (Jeffrey Schmidt).

They are sealed inside the haunted school library built upon stolen Indian land. They opt to have a seance which leads to...

The film is campy. The kids wear school uniforms in case you have a thing for plaid skirts. At several times it copies other films, but it is far from a spoof.
The film is cultish. It has blood and killing, but the horror/suspense was weak making it more akin to a slasher. The humor is not over powering and comes from misdirection. Worth a view. Will add to my collection when the price drops.

Parental Guide: F-bombs, sex, nudity (thank you Amanda Alch).

Note to self: You don't want to be the one caught holding the ax.
