Critic Reviews for Detention Of The Dead

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (3)

  • Is there anything worse than a horror movie that isn't scary? Yes - a horror-comedy that's neither scary nor funny.

  • Detention Of The Dead isn't the best zombie movie ever (or even this year) or the best teen movie ever, but we've all seen worse examples of both genres, and as combinations go, it serves as diversion for the audience.

    January 26, 2019 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • This kind of fodder has been handled better in films like "Dance of the Dead," and "Shaun of the Dead."

    October 12, 2013 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    July 1, 2013 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    June 30, 2013 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • 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.
