The sequel to Cheerleader Camp has been a long time coming, and it’s finally here! Producer John Klyza (Sleepaway Camp IV: The Survivor) lit a fire under Cheerleader Camp: To The Death and brought it to 42nd Street Films to distribute as an original production through his label, Retrosploitation. I have some stills, I have a plot: everything you need for a first look.
Cheerleader Camp 2 is directed by Dustin Ferguson (Die, Sister, Die!), written by Christian Sellers (More Brains: A Return to the Living Dead) and John Klyza, and features the musical talents of John Altyn (Sleepaway Camp 2 & 3). The blood and gore are provided by Wetworks SFX Studios. Here’s the synopsis:
“After a team of cheerleaders are burned to death in a gruesome sprinkler accident, the one who got away, Tanya returns to cheerleader camp. Joining her are an all-new squad of drop-dead gorgeous mean girls from competing high schools who chafe under the strict rules set by Coach Paddington (Jennifer Banko, Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood). With a lustful caretaker (Ari Lehman, Friday the 13th) lurking nearby, the team struggle to get along – but soon their life depends on it! When someone in a panda costume begins killing one girl every hour, it’s up to Tanya to piece together the clues before time runs out.”
Here’s what Klyza had to say about the film:
“The project is a satiric romp with knife-sharp dialogue and producer John Altyn saw the value in it. Its throwback nature secured both Jen and Ari who were child actors in 80s horror hits – they’re all grown up now and ready to have a bloody good time at camp with us.”
The stills look great! When we have more news about this exciting upcoming film, I’ll let you know! I love a good throwback. Hopefully this is as awesome as it looks!
