Cult directors Lucky McKee (May, The Woman) and Chris Sivertson (The Lost) combine their twisted talents for an engaging rampage through formula high-school horror inspired by their 2001 short of the same name. It's a case of Mean Girls meets The Craft when a young Wiccan uses the dark arts to revive Blackfoot High's pompom brigade when they die in a car crash caused by a jealous quarterback. That is just one of a few subplots bubbling away here though, as an excellent ensemble cast, headed by Caitlin Stasey (from Aussie soap Neighbours), is sent on a supernatural rollercoaster ride of gory blood-sucking death, runestone magic and unusual destruction in a perfect dovetailing of directorial styles. The usual generic elements are given a major lift from mothballed creepiness into something remarkably fresh that amiably jangles the nerves while always remaining blackly amusing.


A teenager joins her high school's cheerleading squad, and persuades the others to help her get revenge on the captain of the football team. Before they can carry out their plan, they all get killed during a party, only to rise from the grave granted deadly new powers. Comedy horror, starring Caitlin Stasey and Sianoa Smit-McPhee.
