Did you love The Breakfast Club? What about zombie comedies? What if they mixed into a hilarious film? Well never fear folks, we got ya covered! Check out some info and a nice teaser trailer for Detention of The Dead!
The film was shot in Michigan and has an all-star teen cast including Jayson Blair (The Hard Times of RJ Berger), Jacob Zachar (Greek), Justin Chon (The Twilight Saga), Alexa Nikolas (Zoey 101), and Max Adler (Glee).
Zombiefiend.com caught up with Blair and talked about his role in Detention of The Dead.
“At it’s core Detention Of The Dead a huge tribute to John Hughes and all those ’80s films like The Breakfast Club,” Blair recently said. “The characters are really, really, really modeled after all the characters in The Breakfast Club, but with Zombies in a comedy sort of fashion.”
“I play Brad and I am the jock, go figure,” Blair joked. “And I’m the antithesis to the other lead. Jake Zachar’s playing Eddie, and he’s like the dorky kid, comes to school with a serious purpose that we find out later, and I’m the antithesis to him so there’s a lot of struggle there.”
“This project is a local, Michigan production that is a great representation of the film talent we have here in the state,” said Carrie Jones, director of the Michigan Film Office. “In addition to hiring Michigan workers, the project has forged a training partnership with Oakland University’s Cinema Studies program, as well as Pontiac High School, to enable students to acquire on-the-job experience in all aspects of feature film production. These types of innovative partnerships are critical in helping to grow our state’s crew and talent base.”
The movie is about a group of high school students trapped in detention with fellow students who have been turned into zombies. Pretty simple premise no?
