Teenagers want their parents dead. It’s a statement as old as time and always true. I can’t tell you how much I would’ve paid to have my parents murdered. Like fifty bucks? I didn’t have much money as a teenager (or now!), but the rich kids in Extracurricular Activities look to be sparing no expense to see their folks bite the dust.
In Extracurricular Activities we have Reagan, a high school student whose after-school job is assassinating kids’ parents and making the bloody deeds look like accidents. That’s not so bad. At least he’s not selling drugs, right? Soon he does get one die-hard detective with a hunch on his case, though, and it’s only a matter of time until Reagan’s business comes crashing down.
This looks like a decent dark comedy. It might be a bit too farcical and cheesy, but as a whole I’m digging the concept and tone. Also, we get ourselves a bit of Bobby Lee, which is always nice. He’s looking suitably unhinged and greasy (he once pooped himself while eating hot wings). It’s too bad that even the trailer had to kill him.
Extracurricular Activities will premier in theaters on May 17 before hitting VOD and DVD on June 4, 2019.
