    A slickly produced and brazenly clever piece of work that could attract a cult by sheer dint of its ingenious nastiness and self-aware snark.

    The film's unlikely combination of didacticism and sexy teen slaughter signals a booming trend: the Occupy horror flick.

    This bloody exercise in camp quickly wears out is welcome, although its copious doses of nudity and gore, as well as its undeniably catchy title, should help it stand out on video shelves.

    Bad Kids Go to Hell is the kind of movie its own pampered, careless, coked-up characters would make as a class project at the ass-end of senior year: boys running around with weapons, girls mugging sexy-sassy, narrative continuity be damned.

    Found the film to be much better than the comic it was based on. Since I only have so much space to review, Id defer to the VARIETY review which Joe Leydon hit pretty much on the nose: Fast, fun, and not too serious. It's dark, but not depressing. And the end is KILLER. And a GREAT soundtrack. Expand

    Fun. It's a perfect Friday night rental. Best part was the acting. Judd Nelson is hilarious and the younger players seem to all be on their way up. If you loved the comic, you'll love this Expand

    It's a very entertaining movie that me on the edge of my seat until the very unexpected ending (stay for credits). The acting was superb and not just from Judd Nelson and Ben Browder. The "Bad Kids" were cast exceptionally well. One of the most surprising talents was Jeffrey Schmidt, who played Dr. Day. His quirky character was hilarious, as were many of the unexpected music video style flashback scenes that had the whole theater laughing out loud. This is definitely one of those movies that you'll want to see with others. Instant cult classic! Expand

    Although the acting in this film was quite good; its writing was really lacking. Despite the fact that there were several amusing scenes as a "horror movie" it failed to be fully satisfying. Several characters that were detestable lived and the film had two twists. The first of which wasn't bad but the second twist (which occurred in the scene directly after the previous twist) was just plain silly. The film had potential but the writing (and fake looking roaches and rain) really held it back from being achieved. Expand
