Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Is there anything worse than a horror movie that isn't scary? Yes - a horror-comedy that's neither scary nor funny."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"The easiest and most honest line on Detention of the Dead is that it's better than it has any reasonable right or need to be, given its aims."
‑ Brent Simon, Shockya.com
"This kind of fodder has been handled better in films like "Dance of the Dead," and "Shaun of the Dead.""
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"While it features some pleasing tech credits and an engaged cast, the effort swings too wildly from sensitivity to slapstick, resulting in a disagreeably disorienting viewing experience."
‑ Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com
"Detention Of The Dead is a silly zom-com with plenty of funny high school stereotypes worth taking a bite out of, which our zombies do every chance they get."
‑ Matt Donato, We Got This Covered
"It hits way more than it misses, and there are some truly shining moments strewn throughout the flick to keep even the hungriest of gorehounds satisfied."
‑ Steve "Uncle Creepy" Barton, Dread Central
