Bad Kids Go to Hell was one of my favorite releases of 2012. Not only that, but it was also a smash hit on Redbox rentals and received a lot of praise for its dark representation of teenagers and mysterious horror inklings. I thought this was going to be a one shot film, despite the fact that its based on a graphic novel series. Well, luckily, I was wrong and Bad Kids Go to Hell 2 is currently in post production and is expected to hit select theaters sometime in 2015.
Before this movie blows up, let me take a moment to introduce you to the new students and staff at Crestview Academy.
Bad Kids Go to Hell 2 is written by Matthew Spradlin and Barry Wernick based on their graphic novel. The budding franchise has nabbed a new director for its first sequel, Ben Browder of “Battlestar Galactica” and “Farscape” fame. Cast members appearing in this feature film include Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings, Cabin Fever: Patient Zero), Drake Bell (Superhero Movie, College), Gina Gershon (“Rescue Me,” Killer Joe), Sammi Hanratty (“Salem,” “Chosen”), Sufe Bradshaw (“Veep”), Billy Blair (Machete Kills), Alexandra Astin, Matthew Frias, and Ashlyn McEvers.
But where, oh where is Ms. Gleason? Ms. Gleason, played by Chanel Ryan, was one of the funniest and most outlandish characters in the first film. She was lucky enough to not host Saturday detention, so undoubtedly she survived to the sequel. If she truly doesn’t appear this time, I’m definitely going to miss her!
In Bad Kids Go to Hell 2, “It’s four years later, and a new group of students has been placed in Saturday detention at good ol’ Crestview Academy. After one of the kids locks away the teacher assigned to watch them, the five of them very quickly find their ranks dwindling as each meets with a gruesome “accident”. They may make it out of the library, but with a new threat revealing itself, is there enough time and resources for at least one of them to make it out alive?”
