Sara Stewart, New York Post: This would-be cult movie looks the part, but has little going on inside. Read more

A.A. Dowd, AV Club: What happened to Lucky McKee? Read more

Tom Long, Detroit News: Essentially the very thing it wants to make fun of. Read more

Cary Darling, Fort Worth Star-Telegram/ 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. Read more

Stephen Dalton, Hollywood Reporter: The characters are cartoonish, the pacing is bumpy and the plot illogical. Does this matter? Probably not to the film's target demographic, assuming there is still an audience for knowingly trashy semi-spoof horror comedies. Read more

Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times: 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. Read more

Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times: Shot with a camera as excited as a squirrel-chasing dog, "Cheerleaders" has a girls-gone-wild energy and a twisted sense of humor. Read more

Sean Tepper, Globe and Mail: 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. Read more

Peter Howell, Toronto Star: 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. Read more

Tom Huddleston, Time Out: There's plenty to enjoy - smart one-liners, nifty shocks and one truly unsettling confrontation in a cemetery - but nothing to give Joss Whedon a run for his money Read more

Heather Baysa, Village Voice: All Cheerleaders Die actually delivers as much trashy, gory fun as a movie with such a title suggests. Read more

Dennis Harvey, Variety: Even for those most receptive to the tongue-in-cheek tone here, McKee and Silvertson's in-joke will likely rate just middling on the scale of subversive hilarity. Read more
