Or have the ghosts of prestigious Crestview Academy finally come to punish the school's worst (and seemingly untouchable) brats? One… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"It's an edgy dark comedy with a few clever touches, but the film ... becomes a jumbled mess that lacks both sympathetic characters and suspense."
‑ Todd Jorgenson, Cinemalogue.com
"The real mystery of BKGTH isn't who's doing the killing, but where the passion went in this independently produced screenplay-turned-comic-book-turned-movie."
‑ Leah Churner, Austin Chronicle
"With characters that come off more as collections of tics than people and a soundtrack stuck on earsplitting dance remix mode, Bad Kids plays like a straight-to-DVD bad dream."
‑ Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News
"This mixture of thriller, horror and satire flaunts a smart-ass tone that proves deadening. As the body count starts rising, viewer interest quickly begins dropping."
‑ Tim Grierson, Screen International
"The movie isn't scary enough for horror fans, gruesome enough for the slasher crowd or campy enough to be funny, so it falls into something of a cinematic purgatory."
‑ Cary Darling, Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com
"A cute cast enlivens this body-count picture set in a snooty high school, but once you get past the formulaic clichés, there's nothing there but more clichés."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, Film Journal International
"The movie suffers from several implausibilities, and as you can probably tell, it isn't high art. But horror movies usually tap into our secret fears and desires, and Bad Kids Go to Hell does so quite well."
‑ Charles Ealy, Austin American-Statesman
"The film's unlikely combination of didacticism and sexy teen slaughter signals a booming trend: the Occupy horror flick."
‑ James Spillane, Slant Magazine
