      Mike Massie Gone With The Twins This movie in particular becomes an excruciating exercise in waiting for the next death or shot of gratuitous nudity, neither of which are ever really satisfying.

      Jens B Not as fun as the poster art suggests.. Things I like: - some great nudity in this - the setting - the music Things I don't like: - the pacing - the characters - the "comedy" - the twist - confusing "Nightmare on Elm Street"-inspired dreams/visions - the kills (are there any?) I fell asleep an hour in, I wanted to see more sex and violence and I don't understand why you would have a big crowd of Cheerleaders (even male ones) and only focus on like four bitchy MEGs from "Sleepaway Camp". If you experience insomnia, put this on. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 05/19/23 Full Review jeff l One of the greatest rap songs ever, is in this movie. For that reason alone, I'd recommend it. Leif Garrett's finest work. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member You know, if I had my way, Betsy Russell would have been a much bigger star. I mean, she's done well and is remembered — and got to be in the Saw movies and get a whole new audience — but she deserved better than a movie that forces us to watch Leif Garrett make sweet love to Playboy Playmate for April 1986 and adult star Teri Weigel. Nothing against Teri — she's also in Predator 2, Marked for Death, Innocent Blood and was the first Playboy girl too go into adult, which cost her a lot in her personal and professional life. Making this movie work even harder for me? The appearance of Cannon Films star — I mean, she was in Breakin', Breakin' 2: Electric Booglaoo and Ninja 3: The Domination — Lucinda Dickey. Also — Taleena from the Gor movies — and June 1986 Playmate of the Month — Rebecca Ferratti, George "Buck" Flower and Tom Habeeb, who would one day host the show Cheaters. Based on the death of Kirsten Costas — just like the original Tori Spelling Lifetime movie Death of a Cheerleader — this movie is a paper thin slasher than came in seven years after its expiration date and led to a sequel that's not a sequel, the Russell feature — and yes, Buck Flower shows up again — Camp Fear. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member "Would you mind handing me my screwdriver? Little hard to concentrate on my work with the place full of gaggling do-gooders." Teri Weigel and Betsey Russell were hot as part of a group of cheerleaders attending camp where rival cheerleading crews battle each other "Bring it On"-style. A few ladies "suicide" as the teens continue to pull pranks on the maintenance man. Soild '80s slasher, my 2nd favourite camp slasher next to only "Sleepaway Camp". Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review steve d Dumb ripoff with no scares in sight. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Pure 80s glorious cheese. Leif Garrett's hairline running away from his eyebrows like viewers fleeing from drive in in disgust ,or ecstasy...who knows.....these "kids" at camp all look like they are in their 40s Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
