Back of Box:
Welcome to Camp Hurrah, where a psycho killer
is slaughtering high school cheerleaders on the eve of the all-state finals. Drive-in goddesses Betsy Russell
(PRIVATE SCHOOL, AVENGING ANGEL) and Lucinda Dickey (BREAKIN' 2: ELECTRIC BOOGALOO) star with former teen
idol Leif Garrett in this bouncing, bleeding bonanza of B-movie goodness featuring graphic violence, gratuitous
nudity, bad rapping and more from the glory days of late '80s splatter. This is CHEERLEADER CAMP!
Playboy centerfold Rebecca Ferratti,
Penthouse Pet Krista Pflanza and Playboy centerfold-turned-hardcore-porn queen Teri Weigel
co-star in this slasher fan favorite also known as BLOODY POM POMS. CHEERLEADER CAMP has been newly transferred from
the original negative and is now presented completely uncut and uncensored!

Filming Location(s): Bakersfield,
California and Sequoia National Forest, California.
Alternate Tagline(s): Competition was
murder at... and Some girls would kill to be cheerleaders.
A rumor about a sequel started floating around. Rumor
even had it that Uma Thurman had been in the cast (IMDb has it listed and apparently there is a review for it in John
Stanley's Creature Features video guide). The rumors have been disproved and the "sequel" is
said to have been scrapped and turned into a totally unrelated project titled Camp Fear a.k.a.
Teri Weigel reportedly flashed Director Quinn each morning of filming.
Inspired by the true story of a California girl who murdered her classmates after failing
to make the cheerleading squad.
The Anchor Bay DVD box claims the film is "uncut and uncensored."
In fact, this DVD release is actually the censored "R" rated version. According to the director's commentary, the following
scenes were cut to achieve an "R" rating:
- The "dream" sex scenes were trimmed.
- The shears killing was trimmed.
- A scene near the beginning of the van breaking down was deleted.
- The ambulance attendant telling Alison to "calm down" at the end was deleted.
