Interview: Amanda Grace Cooper

Back in 2001, a sweet little low-budget horror film hit the silver screen. All Cheerleaders Die is a mash-up of zombies, cheerleaders, murder, teem drama, and revenge.

Fast forward to 2013. Directors Lucky McKee and Chris Sivertson have remade their film into a romping horror-comedy. Check out the trailer here. We caught up with Amanda Grace Cooper who plays two of the cheerleaders (there’s body-switching involved; it’s fun), and she had this to say:

Most important question first: is this a good date movie? 

YES! The movie has numerous moments that will leave your girl gripping you, which will force some sort of physical interaction.

Horror seems like a pretty big break with your past work—would you sign on to another horror film? 

I would absolutely love to sign onto another film of this genre. I cannot begin to tell you how much fun it was to be a part of such a fantastic, witty horror film. I dare say, I cannot watch a scary film for my life; however, being able to work on one was a true pleasure indeed.

What was the most fun thing you got to do during shooting? 

I had a blast on set each and every day . . . However, one thing that stands out was being able to work with the stunt coordinator on performing my own stunts. It was pretty awesome!!

If you could play any part, under any director, what would they be?

Sophie in Sophie’s Choice, directed by Alan J. Pakula, or Penny Lane from Almost Famous, directed by Cameron Crowe.

What’s your favourite cocktail? 

If I were to answer that question I’d be in a ton of trouble; I’m only twenty!


All Cheerleaders Die hits theatres and VOD on Friday the 13th.
