The Midnight Madness selection All Cheerleaders Die is actually a remake, says the TIFF MM blog.

Premiering next month at the 38th Toronto International Film Festival, which runs from September 5 to 15, All Cheerleaders Die is actually a remake of Lucky McKee (May, The Woods, Red, The Woman) and Chris Sivertson’s (The Lost, I Know Who Killed Me) 2001 film of the same name. Check out some screen shots of the original discovered with a serious search through the Web.

In the new version starring Caitlin Stasey, Sianoa Smit-McPhee and Tom Williamson, “When tragedy rocks Blackfoot High, rebellious outsider Mäddy Killian shocks the student body by joining the cheerleading squad. This decision drives a rift between Mäddy and her ex-girlfriend Leena Miller — a loner who claims to practice the dark arts. After a confrontation with the football team, Mäddy and her new cheerleader friends are sent on a supernatural roller coaster ride which leaves a path of destruction none of them may be able to escape.
