Coming Soon: Detention of the Dead

19 01 2012

As a teacher, it’s not unusual when a film that takes place in a school piques my interest. I’m also a child of the ’80s, and grew up with coming-of-age classics like The Breakfast Club. And as a geek, I have an appreciation for zombie movies that’s perhaps a bit unhealthy. So it’s no surprise that Detention of the Dead is right up my alley.

Detention of the Dead is being described as The Breakfast Club meets Shaun of the Dead mixed with a bit of Scream and a lot of tongue-in-cheek humor. A group of traditional high school stereotypes – the geek, the jock, the goth chick, the cheerleader, and so on – find themselves locked in detention together when the rest of the student body begins to be transformed into mindless, flesh-eating zombies.

Filmed on a budget of just half a million dollars, the film is currently in post production. No release date has been announced yet, but I’ll be looking forward to it!
