Sony acquires rights to horror/comedy 'Detention'

Via ShockTillYouDrop, Sony Pictures Worldwide has picked up the rights to release Joseph Kahn's hyper-kinetic teen-slasher-comedy, Detention. The film, which stars Shanley Caswell, Josh Hutcherson, and Dane Cook, follows the local students of Grizzly Lake as they survive their final year of high school. Bringing even more angst to student life, a slasher killer has chosen their high school as his new home of slaughter. 

The film has a unique fun style to it - kind of a slasher film by way of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (take that as you like). It is an official selection at the 2011 SXSW Festival. Take a look at the trailer:
