wav­ing is a dan­ger­ous business, at least ac­cord­ing to direc­tors Lucky McKee and Chris Sivert­son. This is their sec­ond bash at a dead cheer­leader film: a far glossier, but also kind of limp, re­make of their un­re­leased 2001 cheapie.

Neigh­bours’ Caitlin Stasey plays a snarky vlog­ger who joins the cheer squad after her BFF dies in a freak tum­bling ac­ci­dent. Her re­venge is put on hold when she’s killed in a car ac­ci­dent… but then her ex- girl­friend brings her back from the dead. Cue pseud­ofem­i­nist witchy non­sense.

It’s sup­posed to be a de­con­struc­tion of teen hor­ror clichés, but it mostly just re­gur­gi­tates them. And since Joseph Kahn’s De­ten­tion ex­ists, there’s just no need for it.
