Another high school cheerleader whodunit!
5 October 2020 | by arant_jgaSee all my reviews

Darcy wants to try out for the cheer squad and makes a bad enemy of Taylor, who's the captain of the squad and who also is jealous and feels threatened by her. Then an accident and murder happen and Darcy becomes a target and more accusations pile up against her. Is Taylor behind it all? You'll have to tune in to find out. Above-average for a Lifetime movie with a good script and some fresh faces.
