Yes, more Jim Wynorski shlock. The man never slows down, often making six films a year. Early in his career, Wynorski worked with low-budget deity Roger Corman, and throughout the years, has returned to the man’s flock in order to make films such as the Eric Roberts vehicle, Carnosaur stock footage employing, Raptor. It wasn’t long before he returned again for what many fans had been anticipating for years; a third sequel to the popular Slumber Party Massacre series, which fell off the face of the earth when the horror market bottomed out in the early 90s. With it being about twenty years since the first one was distributed, the title Cheerleader Massacre was attached to it in order to stir up more interest, while they used some handy revisionist history to connect it to the first.

And the history is really, really grossly revised. While she is just a minor character here, former (and I stress that word) sexy scream queen Brinke Stevens was the first victim of the driller killer in the first film. Yeah, victim. In Cheerleader Massacre, when the time comes for Brinke to have her obligatory flashback scene to when she was young and perky, the story cuts off just before, in the original film, she is easily disposed of. In this version, she escaped the killer’s wrath, and has pretty much gone a tad bit off her wagon thanks to it.

Meanwhile, murder be happenin’, seemingly thanks to an escaped lunatic. This, of course, coincides with a cheerleading squad, their buxom teacher, two druggies, and a bumbling driver’s (Lenny Juliano, who played Lunk in the Bare Wench Porject films) trip through California for a cheerleading competition. In a never before seen twist, their ride breaks down, leaving them to seek solace in an abandoned house. From there, it’s everything that you’ve come to expect (and possibly love) from a slasher. Wynorski, who directed quite a few slasher movies, directs this thing with ease, and delivers a stellar film as always.

Gratuitous blood and nudity is included, so don’t think that it wusses out since it made after 1995.

DVD: Wynorski saves the movie from being barebones with his usual spectacular commentary track. Joining him is GiGi Erneta, who has a part in Massacre as a cop in a bland subplot. Wynorski spits out the usual goodies, including that many cast and crew members worked under pseudonyms, the producers just hated the hair of one of the girls (take a guess), and the “without permits” stance they took in order to film several scenes.

Nothing to see here except a few hot women. Rather watch a film with hot women, and a good plot.
