I’ve always loved this film, girl power revenge flick, very similar to Jennifer’s body in a lot of ways. More films like this please!
surprisingly good...gives me a jennifers body vibe.
I adore this movie. The ending really made me long for a sequel.
All Cheerleaders Die has a lot of camp and a million nods to 80s and 90s horror with an arguably more self-aware mindset. Over all, it's a fun watch. The female relationships are handled way better than most movies and there are some fantastic one-liners that are legitimately funny. The magic is weird and the effects are a bit trippy. The only thing that left a bad taste in my mouth were scenes featuring clear "dude baggage". The camera POV lurks at the young females leads at times and it's clear there's a thirsty middle aged guy behind the camera. It might be an attempt at satire à la Spring Breakers but... it doesn't quite work here. There are scenes that creeped me out that had nothing to do with gore.
I have no words. This was weird and bad. The girls are hot. The guys are not. The End.
