Cheerleader Camp (also known as Bloody Pom Poms), is an American slasher film, released in 1988. The film stars Betsy Russell, Leif Garrett, Lucinda Dickey, George "Buck" Flower, Teri Weigel, and Rebecca Ferratti.


Alison (Betsy Russell) is a cheerleader at Lindo Valley who's grappling with feelings of inadequacy. Alison, along with her flirtatious boyfriend (Leif Garrett) and fellow cheerleaders, attend Camp Hurrah, a cheerleading camp, with hopes of winning the All State finals. Alison's haunted by nightmares of murders that soon manifest themselves into reality. After discovering several people murdered at the camp, Alison soon begins to think that she might be the murderer.[1]



Cheerleader Camp was released on VHS by Prism Entertainment through Paramount Home Video in 1990.[2] It was later released on Region 1 DVD by Anchor Bay Entertainment in 2004.[3]

Critical reception[edit]

Allmovie wrote, "Cheerleader Camp won't hold pleasure for any except the most dedicated Z-level celebrity watchers."[4]


A sequel was planned by producers of the original film, but the project was eventually scrapped and made into another, unrelated film (Camp Fear) that was produced and financed by another production team.[5]

However a film was shot in 2014 based on the original "Cheerleader Camp 2" outline called "Cheerleader Camp: To The Death".
