On a stormy Saturday afternoon, six students from Crestview Academy begin to meet horrible fates as they serve out their detentions. Is a fellow student to blame, or perhaps Crestview’s alleged ghosts are behind the terrible acts?
“Mix The Breakfast Club with Ten Little Indians, then sprinkle with suggestions of supernatural influence, and you have Bad Kids Go to Hell, a slickly produced and brazenly clever piece of work that could attract a cult by sheer dint of its ingenious nastiness and self-aware snark.” Variety
“The overall plot works, but the execution — from the dialogue to the story beats to the tone, the emotion and the general logic — stumbles, illustrating the difficulty in fleshing out a succinct comic into a more detailed movie script.

“Although not a good movie by any stretch, I can see Bad Kids Go to Hell eventually developing a cult fanbase among the more undemanding horror fan. There’s boobs and blood, in case you were wondering, though no real stand-out kills.” Beyond Hollywood
