The Breakfast Club, Except Everybody Dies: Bad Kids Go to Hell Trailer

I didn't see Breakfast Club until I was in college since I missed the John Hughes era by about five years. Until I saw it, I thought that the Deep Blue Something song Breakfast at Tiffany's was from the film. The connection was simply the word "breakfast" and I had never heard of the actual film called Breakfast at Tiffany's. I was fairly pop culturally illiterate when I arrived at college, armed with a prodigious knowledge of science fiction and a Transformers trash can.

In any case, Bad Kids Go to Hell is based on a graphic novel of the same name by Matthew Spradlin, who is also the director of the movie. It is exact same set up as Breakfast Club except that the students get creatively killed off. They could have kept the cast the same, I would have been fine with that being the result of the original movie as well.

The cast of soon to be dead students is essentially unknown, but they've got Judd Nelson of Breakfast Club to play the principal. And it seems perfectly plausible that Bender would con his way into being headmaster of an elite private prep school and then proceed to arrange for the deaths of the students. Plus, there's a Ben Browder sighting in the trailer, and it is scientific fact that everything is better with Ben Browder.

Here's the trailer.

This is not great art, and early reviews are absolutely abysmal. I therefore think that it just might make a perfect movie to watch when you're bored on a Saturday night and have no actually desire for quality.

    I wasn't even going to remotely bother, and then I saw Ben Browder and now it is loading because Ben Browder.

    Might not be a good movie, but I do like the fact that it's self-aware enough to reference the movie from which it's stealing its beginning....and yes, the Indian sacred land/revenge bit is an over-used trope now. Please stop.

    I saw it at SD ComicCon 2012 and fuckin' loved it! Low budget, but the story was intricate w/ some good twists. More funny than scary- but I'd definitely recommend. Not for the squeamish though.

    I'm saddened that they went to the Indian landtheft well. Get creative! On the other hand, nice bowtie.

  • That looks genuinely terrible. Perhaps with a suitable application of drugs and/or liquor it might be fun.
