Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Sean Tepper, Globe and Mail
"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."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"What keeps the movie energetic and resounding comes down to the astute performances from its actresses and the almost aching reality they bring to a premise both silly and ultimately tragic. Whether they're dead or not, growing up can be hell."
‑ Dustin Putman, DustinPutman.com
"The tone shifts as unpredictably as the soundtrack, which goes from a bang to a whisper and back again for no apparent reason."
‑ Chris Knight, National Post
"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."
‑ Cary Darling, Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com
"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."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"This would-be cult movie looks the part, but has little going on inside."
‑ Sara Stewart, New York Post
"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."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Common Sense Media
"Within the first hour All Cheerleaders Die cycles from indie romance, to feminist polemic, to genuine horror, to horror satire, to titillating B-picture. But somehow, this film coheres."
‑ Witney Seibold, Nerdist
"A highly enjoyable horror comedy with its heart in the right place, and its flesh in the right stomachs."
‑ William Bibbiani, CraveOnline
"Shot with a camera as excited as a squirrel-chasing dog, "Cheerleaders" has a girls-gone-wild energy and a twisted sense of humor."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Essentially the very thing it wants to make fun of."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"A gruesome, expletive-laced, battle-of-the-sexes satire of the scary movie genre featuring enough eroticized gore and titillation at every turn to hold the attention of the testosterone-fueled demographic for the duration."
‑ Kam Williams, Baret News
"Much of the plot swerves to completely unpredictable places, and even if the result isn't always successful, it's never boring."
‑ Meredith Borders, Badass Digest
"Frontloaded with a surprising amount of plot, the film takes forever to get going, but it's the filmmakers' hypocrisy that really grates."
‑ Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine
