All Cheerleaders Die could be described as a cross pollination of horror, sex comedies, action, non-ironic romance and straight up fantasy. And it's also a supernatural thriller, but which captures the reality of the times. Lucky McKee and Chris Sivertson have crafted a mix of tones and emotions that encapsulate what it's like to be young in today's world, with its barrage of media, information and instant communication overload. Six photos offer our first look at the film, which will make its premiere at the Strasbourg European Fantastic Film Festival this September.
When tragedy rocks Blackfoot High, rebellious outsider Mäddy Killian shocks the student body by joining the cheerleading squad. This decision drives a rift between Mäddy and her ex-girlfriend Leena Miller, a loner who claims to practice the Dark Arts. After a confrontation with the football team, Mäddy and her new cheerleader friends are sent on a supernatural roller coaster ride which leaves a path of destruction none of them may be able to escape.
All Cheerleaders Die will screen in Strasbourg on 14 September, just after its world première as the opening night film at the 25th Anniversary of the Midnight Madness section of the Toronto International Film Festival.
