I applaud its take-no-prisoners mentality, accurately embellished teen clichés, and ability to elicit some chuckles.

With all the makings of a future cult classic, All Cheerleaders Die is an infectiously fun, razor-sharp romp that feels right at home amongst its high school horror peers.

A funny, smart, and subversive satire about the way women are often objectified in horror films. Only not boring, like that description is.

As is often the best advice, rent Heathers instead.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

The tone shifts as unpredictably as the soundtrack, which goes from a bang to a whisper and back again for no apparent reason.

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.

All Cheerleaders Die offers everything you'd expect from a horror flick with this title, but slow, bumpy pacing and underdeveloped characters make it ultimately forgettable.

With all the finesse of a bullhorn that sprays noise and blood, "All Cheerleaders Die" shows just how difficult it is to pump life into the shopworn teen horror-comedy genre.
Top Critic
Jeannette Catsoulis
New York Times

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

While there are some effective moments early on - especially when Maddy confronts star player Terry (a suitably charming yet threatening Tom Williamson) - [the film] sinks under the weight of predictable plotting and cheap special effects.

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

All Cheerleaders Die began as a lo-fi video feature 13 years ago and weirdly, the inspirational rah-rah seemed to have stopped right there.

This would-be cult movie looks the part, but has little going on inside.
