Attempting to get through high-school, a group of cheerleaders get into an accident at a party and awake to find themselves possessed by spiritual stones that give them dangerous powers against their classmates and forces them to battle the men to stay alive.
This one was quite the enjoyable and truly fun effort. What really makes this one work nicely is the rather fun and engaging series of scenes that showcase the rather exciting lifestyle of the high- school elite portrayed here as this one goes into a rather strong amount of scenes showing them at play in their high-school cliques. The way they engage in their activities, from the manner in which they conduct themselves at school and their practices is quite the overall fun effort and there's a glee to be had here as the groups go off in their typical high-school groups. Given the accident that sets everything in motion and how that plays into what happens later on, there's some really good work here on that front so that it brings out some of the film's greatest parts here with the big party scene out in the woods which manages to be the film's big moment as there's the crazy high-school antics throughout the party as they all begin drinking, hanging out and generally acting as well as indulging in their witchcraft and lesbian tendencies that run throughout the scene and then brings up the big fight that starts the big change-over into their car-crash that includes the big resurrection scene on the beach afterwards which makes this such a fun sequence. There's still plenty of good times here once they get back to the school and begin tormenting the population which allows for some really fun sleazy antics of them seducing everyone and going after the required blood to stay alive and trying to hold out on the killing but still managing to engage in plenty of overall rowdy activities that give that section a boost as well as some solid set-up for the final half where they get wind of their true identities and turn the tables on them in order to set up the great finale in the cemetery which makes for some truly fun times here. Along with the fine gore here, these were the film's best parts and hold this up over it's minor flaws. The biggest issue here is the fact that this one really goes overboard in regards to it's rather fantastic efforts brought to bear in the finale here which makes for a wholly off-putting finish. It's quite flimsy why it goes into that range with the sudden emergence of superpowers in their arsenal and the floating, glowing jewels makes for a rather some rather troubling material during this section. As well, there isn't much about the main guy that's all that appealing, managing to really get annoying and aggravating here with a completely unwarranted degree of behavior that makes for one of the most irritating and bland villains who really comes off utterly unlikable throughout here and why he's considered a threat or even appealing to them from the outset is quite a mystery. Otherwise there's not much else to really dislike here.
