Cheerleader Camp (also known as Bloody Pom Poms) is a 1988 comedic Slasher Movie, where people are killed at, wouldn't you know it, a cheerleading camp.

Almost had a sequel that would later go on to become Camp Fear that was released direct-to-video in 1991, with the only tie being star Betsy Russell as a different character. A loose sequel, titled Cheerleader Camp: 2 the Death, was finally released in 2016.


Give me an E! Give me an X! Give me an A! Giv- oh screw it, here's the tropes used in this movie:

  • All Guys Want Cheerleaders: Main selling point.
  • Alpha Bitch: Suzy had the makings to be one, but this is subverted when she is the first victim. Instead, Pam morphs into one when Trent begins to pursue her.
  • Big Bad: Team Mascot Cory, who is revealed to be the killer.
  • Camera Fiend: Timmy. He is always ready to catch some nudity and sex with his video camera.
  • Car Fu: Theresa is killed with a van.
  • Final Girl: Allison, who is the only good character to survive though Misplaced Retribution can be blamed for robbing her of a true confrontation with the killer.
