What if John Hughes’ The Breakfast Club had ended not with the Brat Pack finding friendship, love, and understanding, but with everyone dying horribly and painfully? Directed by Matthew Spradlin based on his own graphic novel, Bad Kids Go to Hell sees six prep school kids serving detention together on a gloomy Saturday. The rather ordinary punishment turns deadly, however, as suspicious “accidents” claim them one by one.
A cast of relative unknowns comprise the main cast, including Ali Faulkner (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), and Amanda Alch (When Zachary Beaver Came to Town). In an obvious but neat bit of stunt casting, The Breakfast Club star Judd Nelson plays the school headmaster. Watch the trailer after the jump.

I apologize for posting so many stories about John Hughes today, but like many of you, growing up a child of the 1980′s, his films meant a lot to me. And his passing has unearthed a bunch of content that I want to share with you guys. /Film friend and Totally Rad Show co-host Dan Trachtenberg forwarded this link (from Kat Arnett) to a movie trailer for an independent documentary titled Don’t You Forget About Me.
The official website for the doc gives the following one sentence logline: “In 1991, filmmaker John Hughes disappeared from Hollywood… In 2008, four filmmakers went to find him.” I don’t believe they ever got to Hughes, who has done only a handful of interviews in the last 20 years, but they did talk to many people who were involved or influenced by his films: Ally Sheedy, Judd Nelson, Justin Henry, Gedde Watanabe, John Kapelos, Annie Potts, Kelly Lebrock, Andrew McCarthy, Mia Sara, Alan Ruck, Kevin Smith, Jason Retiman, Roger Ebert and many others. Watch the trailer after the jump.
