“Bad Kids Go to Hell” Spoofs Famous National Lampoon Magazine Cover

By Michael Schilf · October 8, 2012

Long passed are the days of bold, politically incorrect magazine covers like National Lampoon's version threatening man's best friend.  Today it's time to revisit that bygone era with a spirited new take from the makers of BAD KIDS GO TO HELL.

On October 10th BAD KIDS GO TO HELL, starring Judd Nelson and directed by Matthew Spradlin, will have a star-studded premiere screening at the Studio Movie Grill in Dallas, Texas.  The film, based on the popular comic book series of the same name, tells the tale of six private school students locked in a Saturday detention with a killer on the loose.  Ben Browder (Farscape, Stargate SG-1, Doctor Who) also stars, as well as Ali Faulkner (Bianca in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1), Roger Edwards (Freelancers), Marc Donato (Degrassi: The Next Generation), Cameron Deane Stewart (Pitch Perfect), Augie Duke (The Mentalist), Amanda Alch (When Zachary Beaver Came to Town), Jeffrey Schmidt (Interstate), and Chanel Ryan (BASEketball) . The film was produced by Barry Wernick and Brad Keller, and had its world premiere at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con International, and screened at Stan Lee’s Comikaze and the Ruby Mountain Film Festival.

Beginning October 27th BAD KIDS GO TO HELL will also have an exclusive Halloween Sneak Peek run at all ten Studio Movie Grill locations, which include seven theaters in Texas along with theaters in Scottsdale, Arizona, Alpharetta, Georgia and Wheaton, Illinois.  The film will have its national theatrical release later this year.
