Watch a Teaser for Detention of the Dead


Detention of the Dead zombieA teaser video from Alex Craig Mann’s zom-com Detention of the Dead premiered over the weekend.  Staying true to its promise to be a mix of The Breakfast Club and Shaun of the Dead, the preview makes swift work of setting up the high school stereotypes you’re going to find in the film.

This indie flick is about a group of oddball high school students who find themselves trapped in detention with their classmates having turned into a horde of zombies. Can they put their differences aside and work together to survive the night? Fat chance! This is high school after all.

Jacob Zachar, Alexa Nikolas, Christa B. Allen, Jayson Blair, Justin Chon and Max Adler star.

Mann makes his feature debut with Detention of the Dead following a career in acting; he penned the film with Rob Rinow (The Cell 2).  For more, visit
