Detention (2011)

A satirical horror movie, Detention features several really weird plot lines, including a serial killer known as Cinderhella, a football captain that mutates when he comes in contact with a meteorite, a dimensional hopping grizzly bear and a really strange kid from Canada.

Cinderhella is on the loose, killing Grizzly Lake High's student body. The principal (Dane Cook) is certain Cinderhella is a disgruntled student at the school and puts the likely suspects - including suicidal Riley (Shanley Caswell), self-absorbed Ione, and hipster Clapton (Josh Hutcherson) - in all-day (10:00 AM–10:00 PM) detention on prom night. Potentially trapped in a room with a murderer, Riley, Ione, and Clapton are forced to work together to stop Cinderhella from killing again, unaware that they're dealing with sinister supernatural forces.
