All Cheerleaders Die

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.
