Cheerleader Camp Reviews
What does that spell? BAD.
Yes, pretty bad, cheesy and stupid slasher with a couple of funny moments, some gore and nudity.
If you're a fan of the slasher genre, it's worth a look. It's certainly not the worst I've ever seen. Otherwise...Skip it!
There's nothing wrong with a tongue-in-cheek slasher flick, but this just isn't funny. The very idea of Garrett playing a teen-age cheerleader is funny, but the only laugh to be found here is the 80's-style rap number he performs with McKenna. Which leaves us with the horror elements, and they're not much more successful. The special effects are particularly weak, and the scares are non-existent.
It's weird that "FRiday the 13th" was the inspiration for so many of these films because this spends/wastes so much time on "character development". For the first hour, there are only three murders and only one of those are on screen. The fake blood starts flowing during the last thirty minutes, but by that time, it's a clearcut case of too little too late. The cast is full of male models and porn stars, but only Lorie Griffin made an impression in a funny, appealing supporting role.
The rest of "Cheerleader Camp" is a let down. This is merely a blip on the slasher radar.
I ALSO could not guess who the killer was...and I'm usually great at that!
Stars a weird barrage of B stars liek Leif garrett, Betsey Russell and some familiar porn "faces" like Teri weigel (Dig that small chest!)
