This week’s review is of the nutty as fuck movie mashup of John Hughes high school ballads, time traveling slasher movie, Detention, from director Joseph Khan. It’s a massive sugar rush of concepts, a Saturday morning cartoon stretched out the absolute limits of insanirty. If you’re not already taking Adderall, you might want to eat a couple just to keep up with this picture.
Here’s the trailer for Detention: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4PFz9gIKKM
But before I review the movie, I summarize a woeful encounter that I had with master of makeup, Tom Savini and how the unflattering article that I wrote about that encounter has become a bit famous as Tom is now going around the convention panel circuit talking about it. However, he gets a bunch of details wrong, and I set the record straight.
