Synopsis

Cancel your future and check out DETENTION, a hipster, teen horror-comedy where the local students of Grizzly Lake must survive their final year of high school. The road to graduation is never an easy one, but 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.

Finally, Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume XXIV. 'Nuff said. So which one is the pick of the week? Honestly, I can't decide. Call it a three-way tie. More...

Will Limited Releases Earn a Perfect Score or Get Detention?

There are quite a few limited releases on this week's list, but few of them are earning overall positive reviews. In fact, only Monsieur Lazhar and Post Mortem are earning reviews above 80% positive, although Here is close to that mark.
