“All Cheerleaders Must Die,” helmer Lucky McKee and Chris Sivertson’s supernatural thrill-ride, will open the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival’s Midnight Madness, it was announced Monday (July 29, 2013) at midnight along with the popular strand’s slate.

This year marks the 25th anniversary edition of the fest’s sidebar program that has, in the past decade, seen Toronto’s Ryerson theatre become a hot red-carpet zone for thrill-seeking auds and a crucial destination for buyers.

“Cheerleaders” is one of seven world-preeming Midnight pics announced tonight, including: Eli Roth’s cannibal caper “The Green Inferno,” Derek Lee and Clif Prowse’s travelog-gone-bloody “Afflicted,” Joe Begos’ spectral mystery “Almost Human,” Mike Flanagan’s paranormal sibling-themed haunterOculus,” Hitoshi Matsumoto’s club-membership danger-zone “R100” and Marvin Kren’s mountain-bound misadventure “The Station.”

Hong Kong pop singer Juno Mak’s helming bow and vampire actioner “Rigor Mortis” and Sion Sono’s hate-fuelled rivalry chiller “Why Don’t You Play In Hell?” receive their North American preems in the program.

The 2013 Toronto International Film Festival runs from Sept. 5 to 15, 2013.

    That would be “All Cheerleaders Die” for anyone having trouble finding it on IMDb like I was.
