We can’t think of a better way to spend a calm Friday evening than hopping on Xbox LIVE and wasting away the remains of a hectic work week with a horror movie that isn’t remotely scary, free of charge. Seriously, we can’t and since Detention of the Dead is free in Xbox Video this weekend you don’t have to think of anything better either.
From now until Monday users can rent the movie in the Xbox Video Store for free. As a short description of the film bills it as The Breakfast Club meets Zombieland, watching it could be a huge mistake. In fact we’re a little unsure on whether that means that the movie has a great pedigree or an absolutely awful one. Still, there’s only one way to find it.
Users can watch the movie from inside the Xbox Video Store on their Xbox 360 or the Xbox Video client in Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.
