  • All Cheerleaders Die 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 20 Aug, 2014

    All Cheerleaders Die is 90 minutes of cheerleaders, football players, pool parties, peer pressure, popularity contests, long blond curly hair, short skirts and low tops, muscular teenage pectorals, goofy jokes, shining white teeth and… neck-breaking, blood sucking, zombie witches..?

    I kind of thought it would be a mindless action film where Sly goes around killing the bad guys in the jungle with his machine gun and that's about it. Like Predator, I guess, just without the Predator.

    I was wrong. It's excellent. I found it very entertaining, and also quite sad. Sure, Rambo is this bad-ass, super elite soldier who can kill a man practically by looking at him with his wonky face, but I never realised there was…
