Bad Kids of Crestview Academy is a 2017 film that falls under the category of dark comedy where viewers are taken on a thrilling ride of murder and mayhem. The movie is directed by Ben Browder, and Barbara Marshall has written the screenplay. The film stars some fresh faces of Hollywood such as Samantha Hanratty, Colby Arps, and Sophia Ali, among others.

The story revolves around six students, who have been compelled to go through a rigorous day-long punishment - detention - at Crestview Academy, an elite institution that primarily caters to children of wealthy parents. These six students - Siouxsie, Faith, Creston, Billy, Tarek, and Bianca - all come from different backgrounds, but detention has united them in the same room with other miscreants. The six students represent different stock characters found in most school movies. They are the rebel, the religious one, the ace athlete, the nerd, the bully, and the rich brat.

While in detention, they soon start experiencing ominous occurrences in the school, and one by one, students start dying a gruesome death. The remaining students become increasingly paranoid and start suspecting each other of being the perpetrator. Along the way, they get into more trouble as they try to solve the mystery behind the killings. They also find themselves joining hands to fight for their survival against the monstrous entity that has taken the form of their principal.

The movie's dark humor is undoubtedly one of its signature elements. Several scenes are soaked with black comedy that will make you cringe and laugh at the same time. It is a splendid mix of wit and gore, which balances out a potentially heavy subject matter such as teen suicide and bullying. The film becomes a rollercoaster ride of horror and humor, with a premise that keeps the viewers engaged throughout.

The characters' performances are worth mentioning. Each actor has performed their character with aplomb, and their performances are a testament to their acting abilities. Samantha Hanratty, who plays Siouxsie in the movie, is perhaps the standout performer, with her portrayal of a rebel and a strong character with a dark, troubled backstory. Colby Arps, playing Billy, the school's aggressive bully, does a great job of bringing the villainous elements of his character to life.

The direction of the movie is top-notch, with powerful and intriguing camera angles that bring the movie's suspenseful nature all the way out to the forefront. The film's pacing is also excellent, allowing enough time to unravel the mystery while still seemingly keeping the viewers on their toes.

The film's soundtrack is adrenaline-pumping, with the music being the perfect compliment to the movie's fast-paced scenes. One of the standout scenes in the movie involves the fight sequence with Siouxsie, and the soundtrack's metal-rock music fits the scene like a glove.

In conclusion, Bad Kids of Crestview Academy is a must-watch for anyone who loves dark humor and horror movies. The movie has a very intriguing premise, and its execution is excellent thanks to the strong performances by the cast, the outstanding direction, and an amazing soundtrack. The film is not just another horror story, but also highlights the inherent issue of bullying that young people are put through in their daily lives. The movie is a reminder that this issue should never be ignored or taken lightly, and therefore, it is a movie worth watching.

Bad Kids Of Crestview Academy is a 2017 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 40 minutes. It has received poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.7 and a MetaScore of 22.
