Bodies Will Tumble And Roll

Directed by Eli Vazquez

United States | 14:52 | 2022

When a dysfunctional BIPOC cheer squad are sent to the woods to settle their differences, they must learn to become a team to save their coach from serial killers.

A group of teenage BIPOC cheerleaders flood into a cabin in the woods to sort through their issues but before they can even unpack a full on fight breaks out. Coach Angie puts them in their place reminding them they are here for one reason and one reason only - to become a team.

Chaos ensues when the coach goes missing and the squad finds themselves alone, in the woods, with no help and to make it worse - having creepy killers down the road as neighbors. They will need to learn to work together in order to save their coach and become the leaders they are meant to be in this action packed comedy, thriller.
