'All Cheerleaders Die' at Strasbourg European Fantastic Film Festival!

Lucky McKee et les Pom Pom Girls Arrive
For the Premiere of
Feature to Debut at the Strasbourg European Fantastic Film Festival

LOS ANGELES, CA - August 25, 2013 - The Strasbourg European Fantastic Film Festival is pleased to announce that Lucky McKee is returning to the festival this year to preside over the feature-film jury and present the European première of his latest film, All Cheerleaders Die – a fast-paced and sexy horror film, co-directed with Chris Sivertson. Lucky attended the festival in 2011 as director of The Woman, which won the Grand Prix.

Andrew van den Houten (CEO of Modernciné), the producer of both All Cheerleaders Die and The Woman, and Australian actress Sianoa Smit-McPhee, will also be on hand for the première and to meet the public and press. 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.

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.

Full Festival line up available at www.strasbourgfestival.com from 23 August.

    This should be re-titled: "All Cheerleaders must be buggered senseless (on their 18th birthdays ! ! !)".
