  • Cheerleaders' Wild Weekend - DVD

    Type: Event | Date: Tuesday, Nov 24, 2009

    This smarmy exploitation film from director Jeff Werner posits a busload of cheerleaders kidnapped for a two million dollar ransom by some ex-jocks who take them to a remote cabin. This is another one of those movies where none of the characters behave like real people. Forced to strip by their captors, the cheerleaders (from three rival high-schools) let their competitive spirit get the best of them and are soon giggling and preening naked in a gunpoint beauty-pageant. One of the captors is a "sensitive guy" (Robert Houston of The Hills Have Eyes), which he proves by masturbating in the doorway while a female kidnapper molests one cheerleader in a bathtub. Kristine DeBell stars as a captive who falls for ringleader Jason Williams before the ludicrous finale involving a complicated hotel ransom-drop and a cheerleader swinging a chainsaw. This is an extremely tacky film, even for its subgenre, but it probably started off much worse. Some racial epithets have obviously been removed by re-dubbing, and what appears to have been a fairly graphic rape scene has been excised. What remains is neither innocuous enough to be funny or sick enough to be a cult film. The only things that make this picture worth seeing are the cast and the frequent topless scenes. Serious drive-in devotees will recognize Shell Kepler of the teen-angst classic Homework, as well as stars DeBell and Williams, who also appeared in the X-rated Alice in Wonderland for this film's producer, onetime porn director Bill Osco (Mona, the Virgin Nymph).. ~ Robert Firsching, All Movie Guide
