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.

What happened to Lucky McKee?

[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.

Frontloaded with a surprising amount of plot, the film takes forever to get going, but it's the filmmakers' hypocrisy that really grates.

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

It's how this fury interacts with lighter material that poses a problem, with McKee and Sivertson perhaps too entranced with their own creation to fully appreciate how uneven it is.

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

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.

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.

Essentially the very thing it wants to make fun of.

October 14, 2013 unwatchable horror effort that's just never as fun as its title might've indicated.

The characters are cartoonish, the pacing is bumpy and the plot illogical. Does this matter? Probably not to the film's target demographic, assuming there is still an audience for knowingly trashy semi-spoof horror comedies.

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.

As is often the best advice, rent Heathers instead.

[The film] attempts to combine the dark high-school comedy of Heathers with a calamitous fusion of witchcraft and zombie tropes. It's every bit as sloppy as it sounds.

Even for those most receptive to the tongue-in-cheek tone here, McKee and Silvertson's in-joke will likely rate just middling on the scale of subversive hilarity.

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.

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

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

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