This movie is based on a true story. It is about a murder of a cheerleader by a peer who was threatened & jealous by her actions. It was good to watch once and could be used in classrooms to educate adolescents about bullying and peer pressure.

Movie Reviews

If you like Lifetime TV's movies, you'll like this one too
R. Byrne | 05/12/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Kellie Martin plays unpopular high schooler Angela Delveccio, who longs to be part of the "in" crowd. She joins as many activities as she can, including The Larks, which is an afterschool service club. Many of the popular girls are Larks, including the nasty Stacy Lockwood (Tori Spelling) who delights in humiliating the lone goth chick at school.

One night, Stacy and Angela get into a fight and Anglea blurts out an embarassing litany of reasons why she's so obsessed with Stacy. Unsurprisingly, Stacy is creeped out and mocks Angela, saying she's going to tell everyone at school about how weird Angela is. The idea of public humiliation pushes Angela over the edge and she stabs Stacy to death. The last part of the movie deals with Angela trying to keep her crime a secret from the police while the poor goth chick gets blamed by students for Stacy's death.

I saw this on Lifetime a couple years ago and have been waiting for it to be released on DVD! Kellie really nails the character of the desperate, plain-jane Angela and Tori is perfect as the rich bitch Stacy."

"First saw this made for nbc-tv movie in 1994. Starred Kellie Martin as Angela and Tori Spelling as Stacy. This got great ratings when it initally aired. I was glued to my seat the entire 2 hours. Tori Spelling does an awesome job playing bitchy Stacy Lockwood and Kellie Martin does a great job playing unpopular Angela. If you're a fan of mid-90's tv movies than this is one you should pick up."
Wonderful insight into the heart of a tormented girl.

"Kellie Martin puts in an absolutely brilliant performance as the desperate-to-be-accepted outcast. Tori Spelling is wonderful as the golden girl who seems to have it all, because she fits in with what others prize, including the alleged adults who run the show.

What is so sad here is that Kellie Martin's character is the one with the talent and drive. If she had not been pushed over the edge by the taunting of others and her childlike need for approval, life would have ultimately proven her to be the success.

Kellie Martin's performance is so on-target that at times it is agonizing (and embarrassing) to watch. The subtle changes of emotion on her face during the principal's "be the best" speech should have won her awards.

If you are a fan of Lifetime movies, Death of a Cheerleader definitely belongs in your collection."
