“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. As such, plot points are left hanging, and the characters’ actions are consistently nonsensical throughout.”

Ali Faulkner as Tricia Wilkes in ``Bad Kids Go to Hell.''

“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
