  1. Evan Schafer's rating of the film Detention

    When a film includes a scene where the film is referring to itself รก la a mirror reflecting another mirror, and features a time-traveling grizzly bear and "TV hand", along with more than a handful of clever humor and a talented young cast, you've got a winner of a film. Definitely indie in its presentation and visual effects, but inherently fun and endearing at the same time. Some very funny situational comedy, too.

  2. Ilona Buffet's rating of the film Detention

    Perfect comicbook-ish feeling in a sea of 90s references.

  3. film_lies101's rating of the film Detention

    This is basically a 'Not Another...Movie' or like being repeatedly slapped in the face by a hyperactive dildo

  4. Skinnedteen's rating of the film Detention

    It's such an entertaining cult film that has a lot of pop-culture reference. Definitely underestimated it!

  5. Diego Carrera's rating of the film Detention

    Too many ideas together made it confusing, all right. But this (amazing) soundtrack certainly deserved a playlist on Spotify. So here it is and here we go:

  6. caprica_six's rating of the film Detention

    jesus christ this movie was trying so hard and just ended up being an obnoxious mess. a lot more memorable than most teen horror, though.

  7. Dylan Vernall's rating of the film Detention

    I don't know what to think, it was both surprising in a good way but so over the top and childish in others

  8. lostlevel's rating of the film Detention

    I confess re-appraising films I've already seen doesn't happen that often or at least I can't be bothered to re-write the reviews. Still I recently watched this again to see if it still holds up, long story short it does. Something about this somewhat feverish nostalgia slasher makes me laugh, sometimes it's silly or plain daft but I found it endearing. I find it hard to be picky when a film is so fun.

  10. Pymo's rating of the film Detention

    That's pop culture, bitch!

  11. Julien Marcoux's rating of the film Detention

    This movie was supposed to be so bad that is good, but it was to much bad so it suck!!!

  12. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Detention

    A strangely transfixing trudge through superficial creativity and self-defeating irony.

  13. LNLee's rating of the film Detention

    I honestly didn't know what to make of this movie. Pure crack. Had its really ingenious moments.

  14. Sean's rating of the film Detention

    Detention is pretty silly entertainment but I really enjoyed the hell out of it. Tons of pop culture references and homages to classic teen flicks. dialogue is fast and furious, I wasn't bored at all watching this movie.

  15. elmer_fishsticks's rating of the film Detention

    A reflection of the now. Relentlessly beautiful and a brilliant destruction of genre lines.

  16. Henrique Amud's rating of the film Detention

    I shouldn't have, but I quite liked it. It is fun, terribly silly and deliciously trashy. It just tries soooo hard to be cool that it wears it's welcome a little bit, but it still is a pretty satisfying milkshake of references. It borrows heavily from Scream, Scott Pilgrim, Donnie Darko, Kaboom, et al and although it is not on their league, it might satisfy it's fans.

  17. novanindro's rating of the film Detention

    this one is better than the cabin in the woods

  18. hastapura's rating of the film Detention

    Goddamn. That was something. Overstimulated, hyperlinked, multitasking, 4G ridiculousness that couldn't be more of-the-moment. Whether I could come back in five years and still be into it is another, and possibly irrelevant, matter: how could you not be excited about what this dude will direct next?

  19. Cbarky99's rating of the film Detention

    A candy-coated 21st century slice of American Delerium that pushed all the right buttons for me. Oddly positive about the future.

  20. Ari's rating of the film Detention

    I'm too old for this shit.

  22. Alcock Hitchfred's rating of the film Detention

    The definition of a "wtf" movie...

  23. Frankly, Mr. Shankly's rating of the film Detention

    It's like putting 30 years of pop culture (especially from the 90ties) in a blender and the result is a nonsense horror meta film. There's Donnie Darko, Saw, Scream, Cronenberg's The Fly, Kaboom, Smiths, Hole and lots of good stuff. With an open mind and no big expectations, you may have a lot of fun. Also: the "The Silent Enigma of Elliot Fink" scene is purely genious.

  24. HKFanatic's rating of the film Detention

    The heir apparent to "Donnie Darko": a meta, genre-bending horror movie that also serves as a love letter to the 90's. Imagine if Gregg Araki directed "Scream" and you might be halfway there. Pop will eat itself, yes - but if we're lucky, it will regurgitate something as brilliant and laugh out loud funny as "Detention." Whether he intended to or not, Joseph Kahn may have just created the next phase of teen cinema.
