DEATH OF A CHEERLEADER

William A. Graham, USA, 1994, Multicom, Cult

This now-classic made-for-TV mean girl movie -- also known as A FRIEND TO DIE FOR -- stars Tori Spelling as the queen bee bully and Kelly Martin as the mousy girl who isn’t going to take it anymore. Desperate for popularity, Angela (Martin) is accepted into the high school clique The Larks, and sets her sights on befriending the most popular girl in school, cheerleader Stacy (Spelling). After being rejected by Stacy and refused a spot on the cheerleading squad, Angela turns to murder. But no one expect the nice girl, and Angela’s star rises as a fellow classmate takes the heat. Based on the 1984 murder of Kristen Costas, this is a ripped-from-the-headlines tale that dares to suggest the victim may have deserved her death. The highest-rated TV movie of 1994, DEATH OF A CHEERLEADER is a mean-girl melodrama with campy charm.
