Young, far-from-dumb and full of comeuppances.

What keeps the movie energetic and resounding comes down to the astute performances from its actresses and the almost aching reality they bring to a premise both silly and ultimately tragic. Whether they're dead or not, growing up can be hell.

A gruesome, expletive-laced, battle-of-the-sexes satire of the scary movie genre featuring enough eroticized gore and titillation at every turn to hold the attention of the testosterone-fueled demographic for the duration.

Within the first hour All Cheerleaders Die cycles from indie romance, to feminist polemic, to genuine horror, to horror satire, to titillating B-picture. But somehow, this film coheres.

Much of the plot swerves to completely unpredictable places, and even if the result isn't always successful, it's never boring.

Shot with a camera as excited as a squirrel-chasing dog, "Cheerleaders" has a girls-gone-wild energy and a twisted sense of humor.

A highly enjoyable horror comedy with its heart in the right place, and its flesh in the right stomachs.

All Cheerleaders Die actually delivers as much trashy, gory fun as a movie with such a title suggests.

A twisted and very entertaining horror comedy with eye candy, great special effects, and excellent potential for a follow up.

A possible cult classic in the making. Its nice to see a movie, especially of the horror genre, where the ladies are the smart and strong characters.

Funny in its satire, inventive in its horror, and devilishly satisfying in its theme. There ain't nothing like it, as they say, and that makes it a very special bit of horror cinema.

A funny, smart, and subversive satire about the way women are often objectified in horror films. (Also gory / sexy.)

All Cheerleaders Die mixes a dash of Mean Girls, a pinch of Bring It On, and a heaping helping of witchy horror to conjure one fun-filled dark comedy.

There's plenty to enjoy - smart one-liners, nifty shocks and one truly unsettling confrontation in a cemetery - but nothing to give Joss Whedon a run for his money

Twists the high-school revenge story into feminist black magic.

For all the grim fatalism of its title (well, apart from the 'cheerleaders' bit), this is a very funny film - a darkly irreverent joyride through the angst and sexual complication of the teen years, with added zombies, magic and freaky CG gore.

As is often the best advice, rent Heathers instead.

It ultimately succumbs to the conventions it's attempting to lambast.

[The directors have] way too much fun gruesomely dispatching the female characters who have suddenly lost all of the pluck, humour, and cheerleading spirit they spent the first hour attempting to instill in them.

Some have seen this movie as a sly satire on the lowly roles of women in horror films, but at the same time, it's actually a horror movie about women occupying those same roles.
