After watching the first 10 minutes of the film and witnessing girls take off their tops for no apparent reason, I realized that I've already seen this. After having felt like a dumbass for renting a film twice, I continued to watch it, because I wanted to do a review. I guess that's the price you pay when you've seen as many horror films as I have. You kinda lose track.

Anyway, the film is just like any other 80s slasher -- girl goes to camp with a bunch of her peers and they end up dying one by one. The thing I did somewhat like about the film was the ending. It wasn't like many other slashers where the bad guy gets found out and dies or gets caught. It's a little different and more interesting. The film itself still kinda sucks though.

There are a lot of whacked dream sequences the main girl experiences throughout the film that kinda gives you clues as to what's going on. It's interesting, but some of it oddly-enough resembles A Nightmare on Elm Street. There is also a fair amount of humor in it, but what 80s slasher doesn't have a little humor? It really wouldn't be a slasher without tits, humor, and dead bodies. The acting is okay, but the plot itself is pretty weak. So much more could have been done to this film. I decided a 3 would be a good rating because the ending is a little different than other slashers and it's somewhat interesting, if you only see it one time *sigh*..

Same old slasher film straight from the 80s, only this time it has dead cheerleaders. Not really recommended unless you have some extra cash and lots of time on your hands.
