All Cheerleaders Die is an American horror comedy movie released in 2013 written and directed by Chris Sivertson and Lucky McKee. The film is a remake of another movie with the same name that was released in 2001, which tells the story of a cheerleader who fights against supernatural powers.

In this film, Felisha Cooper's character name was Alexis, who is a childhood friend of Maddy Killian. The film starts with Mäddy recording footage of Alexis as she was practicing for cheerleading before the school was closing for summer vacation. Maddy was telling her that cheerleading can be dangerous, and it is very important to remain fit as cheerleading can cause deadly injuries. Unfortunately, her words become true when Alexis’ teammates fail to catch her in time while she was thrown into the air during a cheerleading session. This accident resulted in Alexis' death

Once school resumes after summer vacation, Mäddy decides to pursue cheerleading and gets accepted to the team as she was very acrobatic. Mäddy notices that Tracy has begun dating Terry, a star football player whom Alexis was dating prior to her death. Maddy starts to mingle freely with the other cheerleaders, which irritate Mäddy's ex-girlfriend Leena who couldn’t understand why Mäddy wants to spend time with the cheerleaders. As a matter of fact, Mäddy wished to take revenge on Terry, and that is why she joined the cheerleading squad.

Mäddy starts taking her revenge by approaching and convincing Tracy that during the summer, Terry had cheated on her, and she even manages to seduce Tracy at a group gathering of football players and cheerleaders. This hurts Leena and angers Terry, and begins a fight. He also bans dating between cheerleaders and football players in future. Terry punches Tracy in his fit of anger. Cheerleaders becomes frightened seeing this and they try to escape somehow from the rage of football players. But unfortunately an accident is caused by Terry and all the cheerleaders gets killed in it. Leena, who was watching everything from a distance, uses magic stones and Wicca magic to revive all the dead cheerleaders. None of the cheerleaders recollected precisely what happened last night. When they felt hungry, they attacked one of Leena's neighbors and drank his blood. Then, to the surprise of the football players, girls go to school, and picked the football players one by one and killed them.

When the girls find out the actual reason of Mäddy joining the cheerleading squad from her video diaries, they felt dejected. Nobody believed Maddy now, especially Tracy, who had begun to fall in love with Mäddy genuinely. The only person who will listen to Mäddy was Leena. Maddy tells her that Terry raped her while she was trying to film a memorial video for Alexis, and that’s why she wanted revenge. The girls are in the meanwhile picked off one by one by Terry, who defeats them by cutting out their magic stones (which is inside the girls' bodies) and swallowing them.

Terry then corners Leena and Maddy in a graveyard and forces Leena to teach him how to use her magic. But Mäddy attacks him, and Leena's magic forces the stones out of Terry's body, and he dies. Mäddy also dies, but Leena revives her. The two begin to kiss each other, and they see a bloody Alexis tearing away Terry's corpse screaming Leena's name. The film then stops abruptly, hinting that there will be a sequel to the film.
