Detention Of The Dead is a silly zom-com with plenty of funny high school stereotypes worth taking a bite out of, which our zombies do every chance they get.
| Original Score: 7/10
The easiest and most honest line on Detention of the Dead is that it's better than it has any reasonable right or need to be, given its aims.
| Original Score: C+
It hits way more than it misses, and there are some truly shining moments strewn throughout the flick to keep even the hungriest of gorehounds satisfied.
| Original Score: 3/5
This kind of fodder has been handled better in films like "Dance of the Dead," and "Shaun of the Dead."
Is there anything worse than a horror movie that isn't scary? Yes - a horror-comedy that's neither scary nor funny.
| Original Score: 1/5
While it features some pleasing tech credits and an engaged cast, the effort swings too wildly from sensitivity to slapstick, resulting in a disagreeably disorienting viewing experience.
| Original Score: C-
