It’s tough being a cheerleader. There’s all that shouting out alphabets and cheering for the home team and jumping and wearing skimpy outfits, and such. There are other stuff that cheerleaders do, right? I dunno, it’s not like I ever investigated the life of a high school cheerleader or anything.
Anyhoos. Check out a trailer for Lucky McKee and Chris Sivertson’s “All Cheerleaders Die,” which is kind of an odd title. I always involuntarily insert “Must” into the title, making it “All Cheerleaders Must Die” for some reason. I think that would have been a better title myself, but what do I know.
Teenage outsider Maddy is keeping some dark secrets and holding a serious grudge against the captain of the Blackfoot High football team. When Maddy joins the school’s elite and powerful cheerleading squad, she convinces her new friends to help inflict her revenge. After a late-night party goes awry, their plans take an unexpected turn for the worst and all of the girls die. A sinister, supernatural power intervenes and the girls mysteriously appear at school the next day with a killer new look… and some unusual new appetites.
Starring Caitlin Stasey, Sianoa Smit-McPhee, Brooke Butler, Amanda Grace Cooper, Reanin Johannink, and Tom Williamson.
The cheerleaders die on VOD May 8, 2014, and in select theaters this June 13, 2014.
