The 50 Most Ridiculous Lifetime Movies

13. Death of a Cheerleader

Original Air Date: September 26, 1994
Director: William A. Graham
Stars: Kellie Martin, Tori Spelling, James Avery
Lesson Learned: Cover your damn tracks.

Tori Spelling unleashes one of her bitchiest performances to date in this campy '90s teen drama that begs the question, "Would you kill to be popular?" Apparently Angela Delvecchio (Kellie Martin) would. After wheedling her way into the popular clique (Isn't that enough?!), she's desperate to get queen bee Stacy Lockwood (Spelling) to like her. That's when things start to get weird.

In attempts to get her idol alone, the obsessed Lockwood lies about an event for their crew, then, once the two are together, explains her actions and just how deep her Stacy worship goes. Appropriately creeped out, but slightly harsh in her rejecting of homegirl's friendship advances, the reality star ends up getting stabbed repeatedly with a knife and left for dead. How this gem didn't win an Emmy, we'll never understand.
