Ava (Savannah May, Knight Squad), an incoming transfer student, reluctantly goes for the cheerleading group at the request of her overly ambitious mother, Candice (Denise Richards, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills). Katrina (Allie DeBerry, A.N.T Farm), the top cheerleader and most enjoyed woman in the class, unexpected up to Ava who makes the squad and instantly becomes high school royalty.
As she advances into her new life, Ava discovers turning into a part of the squad comes at a value. The Secret Lives of Cheerleaders is created by Hybrid. Moreover, Peter Sullivan is the executive and Pakistani financial unit White is the Author.
Lifetime commences its Cheer, Rally, Kill line-up with The Secret Lives of Cheerleaders. Move over Regina George! Katrina is here to kill. Denise Richards stars in the main film of Lifetime’s exceptionally foreseen Cheer, Rally, Kill line-up. The Secret Lives of Cheerleaders follows Ava (Savannah May) and her mother, Candice (Richards) as they relocate into a new town.
It has been almost two years since Ava’s father passed away. Since his passing, Ava has struggled with drugs and alcohol to cope with her grief. Candice believes relocating to a new town and school will give Ava the fresh start she needs.
Unfortunately, the new school doesn’t have a dance team, which used to be Ava’s passion. She’ll have to make do with trying out for the mighty Lions cheer team where she comes face to face with the Queen Bee herself, Katrina (Allie DeBerry). Considering the opening of the film consists of lion-mask-wearing cheerleaders tormenting another girl, you should have seen a vicious initiation coming down the pipeline.
Once the four new cheerleaders, including Ava, find out they are on the team, their happiness is short-lived. No sooner do they get acquainted with the perks of popularity do they find themselves trapped in an underground cage. To pass the first trial, Alex, Tiffany, Ava, and Julie must escape before fire consumes them! Don’t worry. It’s not real fire, Katrina uses a fog machine to fool her recruits into hyperventilating. She’s a real peach, isn’t she? The intensity of the film’s opening scene sets the stakes. I liked this scene because it delivers on our expectations of how dark and over-the-top (and fun) The Secret Lives of Cheerleaders will be.
