If you asked me to sum up Cheerleader Camp
(also known as Bloody Pom Poms
in Europe) in one word, it would have to be "classic". There is no way around it folks, this is one of the best cheerleader/slumber party/sorority house type splatter films of all time! Cheerleader Camp
is constructed of all the elements that make our beloved genre superior to all others! Loads of obnoxiously fake looking blood, acting so bad it's awesome and amounts of nudity that would make Hugh Hefner blush. Oh yes, my fellow splatter friends, prepare yourself for Cheerleader Camp
To start off, this film is jam packed full of Playboy centerfold models, hardcore porn stars and classic B-movie actors. This alone makes the film fantastic. Betsy Russell stars as Alison Wentworth, a somewhat shy young woman looking to win the all-state cheerleader finals. Remember the character "Jill" from Saw 3
? That's Betsy Russell 20 years after filming Cheerleader Camp
. She'll also be reprising her role in Saw 4
. Lorie Griffin (from Teen Wolf
) does a great job as an airhead cheerleader. She started filming Cheerleader Camp
immediately after finishing Teen Wolf
. Playboy centerfold Rebecca Ferratti, Penthouse Pet Krista Pflanza and Playboy centerfold-turned-hardcore-porn queen Teri Weigel co-star creating a whirlwind of bouncing breasts and bushy beavers. (You might remember Rebecca Ferratti as the woman who tears Jim Carrey's pants off and throws him around the room like a rag-doll in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective
) Fucking fantastic. We even get the pleasure of having George 'Buck' Flower play the same character he has in every B-horror film since the mid 70's.
Probably the most memorable scene is when the local Sheriff and the camp manager participate in the most hilarious sex scene ever caught on film. Imagine this... a Sheriff in his underwear reenacting a football touchdown (in slow motion) from his early days while the camp manager lays on the bed (in a cheerleader uniform) with her legs spread like a goal post while cheering about how much she wants his old wrinkly dick. Sheriff jumps in and, " He's at the 30, the 20, the 10! TOUCHDOWN!" Yep... fucking hilarious. You need to see it before you die or you haven't fully lived. (Wanna see it? View the video clip below!)
After getting your own copy of Cheerleader Camp
, do NOT expect award winning acting and convincing death scenes. If there was great acting and realistic death scenes, splatter films wouldn't be any fun! This is the type of film you throw in when all your buddies are over and you have a plentiful bounty of cheap beer and liquor. It's 100% guaranteed to entertain and cause your guests to laugh until they taste stomach acid in their mouths. Flesh Farm guaranteed!
In conclusion, you HAVE to see this! If you throw alot of parties and want to show a splatter film that will keep them laughing and guessing, this is your film! Death, tits, ass and hilarity... a must have in any film collection!
