Certainly not the most exciting '80s slasher, in fact I'd say it's even just barely average really. We meet a girl named Alison who is having nightmares, so she decides to go to a summer cheerleading camp (erm...sure?). Anyhow, Alison's boyfriend also goes to this camp and starts hitting on other girls. When the girls start dying we get to figure out who is murdering the ditzy blondes. What's funny is that Leif Garret, Lucinda Dickey and Betsy Russell are characters in this, but unfortunately they don't do much to save it. If you desperately want a cheerleader slasher film then okay fine proceed, but even the deaths aren't that great! It's definitely low budget, low effort and low payout, still I sat through it without too much struggling!
