Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games) and Dane Cook (Good Luck Chuck) star in the instant cult-classic Detention, which is coming to DVD and Digital on August 27th from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. This bizarre and original comedy-horror hybrid went down a storm at FrightFest last year and takes the slasher genre to a new high.
In this hipster, teen horror-comedy the students of Grizzly Lake must survive their final year of high school. Standing in their way is Cinderhella, a slasher-movie killer 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 and ultimately save the world... if only they can get out of detention.
The DVD is packed with bonus materials, including a feature-length featurette. "Cheat Mode: The Unbelievably Mind Melting Making of Detention" provides detailed insights from cast and crew on the making of the film, as well as trivia throughout.
Detention was directed by Joseph Kahn and written by Kahn and Mark Palermo. It was produced by MaryAnn Tanedo and Richard Weager, with Bob Abramoff, Josh Hutcherson, David Kang, Clayton Reaser and Vernon Reaser serving as executive producers.
