Riley Jones’ adolescence has fallen in with the outcasts. Her life gets even worse when she has to go to detention after school and, as if that weren’t enough, a killer who seems to have stepped out of a slasher movie starts to kill people right and left. “I don’t want a teen movie that also tries to have an adult audience. This is a movie about teens for teens”. That’s how categorical Joseph Kahn is when talking about Detention, a low-budget, modest looking horror comedy but that, screening after screening, is getting talked about more and more.
As a teenager, he started to make skate videos and video clips for hip hop groups from Houston, his hometown. He moved to New York to study cinema, but dropped out of college and went to Los Angeles to launch his career. There he became a prestigious video clip and commercial director. He debuted in feature-length films with Torque (03).
