Airdate: Detention

Horror themes

Taiwanese supernatural drama Detention screens on Netflix from Sunday.

Detention: The Series starts at Greenwood High School in the 1990s. Yunxiang Liu (played by Lingwei Lee), a transfer student, steps into the forbidden area on the campus by accident, where she encounters the ghost of Ruixin Fang (Ning Han). Fang later unveils the hidden history and trauma over the past 30 years, and how a group of young students and teachers were persecuted as they fought for freedom in the era of censorship. Their stories keep coming back to the school like haunting nightmares, waiting to be told and revealed.


  1. Heads up – the video embedded is the trailer for the movie, not the TV series

    On a side note – the movie is fantastic. Best Asian horror movie of 2019. It’s too bad we will never see the movie on TV over here. If only we had a TV channel that focused on showing movies from around the world…
