Bad Kids Go to Hell? If your answer is no, don't feel bad, because it was a pretty obscure movie that was based on a pretty obscure graphic novel, so unless you had read that, you probably didn't even know the movie existed.
It was decent-enough. We didn't review it, but it was a passable watch that had Augie Duke playing an evil little bad girl. It's streaming for free on Amazon Prime if you want to check it out HERE.
Did you know that Bad Kids to Crestview Academy is a sequel to Bad Kids Go to Hell? Because it is. It's not as "edgy" as the first movie was, in that the kids in the first movie felt way more bad than they do here, but hey, it's a sequel, what do you expect?
|I'D GIVE HER SOME ANSWERS.|
Don't ask us. the movie wasn't very long on plot.
|THEY FINALLY ARRIVE AT MORDOR...|
|THE ANSWERS ARE NOT BEHIND THAT DOOR.|
The big problem with this movie is that it's a jumbled mess of underwhelming story and inconsistent visuals that never amounts to much other than being a faithful homage to the graphic novel, which maybe was the point? I mean, what was the point of the whole mascot subplot?
That said, there was something oddly enjoyable about this movie.
Sammi Hanratty is adorable and competent in her role, and Erika Daly won our hearts with her odd little dance number. There's also some good gore to be had here, some slick visuals, and the small roles that Gina Gershon and Sean Astin occupied stole the show.
|SHE CAN'T DANCE, BUT SHE'S A QT.|
|WELL, THAT SHIRT'S RUINED...|
|NOT BAD ENOUGH, I SAY!|
If you liked the first movie, or the graphic novels which inspired both films, then you'll probably dig this one too. Just know that it has issues.
C-/D+ , we can't decide which.
Bad Kids of Crestview Academy is available now on VOD.
