“Satan’s Cheerleaders” is one of those films that makes me glad for VCI. That little company always had a knack for finding deep-cut drive-in fare that combined sex with horror. That’s when you are taken aback by how little nudity is in the film. If that wasn’t enough, the odd cameos from Yvonne DeCarlo and John Carradine will only leave you further scratching your head. Was this an honest horror movie or just a comedy? Oh well, I think I saw Dean Cundey’s name in the credits.

If you can get the one sentence plot, then you understand the film. Creepy school janitor offers up cheerleaders to Satanists for blood sacrifice. What is so great about this disc is that you get to watch the original rough print of the film and you get a cleaned-up master. It’s the best of both worlds, as you get to watch nubile young things die. This is where the Matt Laurer joke used to be before good taste made me digitally replace it with Christopher Plummer.

Don’t believe me? Well, check out the clip below.

The Plot Thus Far

Benedict High School’s cheerleaders aren’t shy and sweet. The football team knows them well – and Billy, the school’s disturbed janitor, would like to. In the locker room, the girl’s shower and dress, unaware of the evil eyes which secretly watch them. They don’t know that a curse has been placed on their clothes. And they don’t know that their trip to the first big game of the season might sideline them for eternity. Will the cheerleaders succumb to the dark ritual of sexual sacrifice and death that’s been plotted for them? Only those who dare watch will know!
