The Slumber Party Massacre franchise spanned 3 sequels considered bottom tier in horror realm. Cheerleader Massacre is released 13 years after and is more than an odd title change. The previous movies were the very definition of B movies, but Part 4 is a whole other story. The makers aren't meticulous and make visual mistakes unforgivable in the digital era.
Film grain isn't here to patch up poor cinematography, anymore. The camera angles and movements are uneducated. When conversing, characters are always looking at us, or almost, regardless of the current dynamic. The director can’t handle group dialogue either. The procedural is unnecessary, tedious and so predictable it is not worth our attention anyway. We all know how these films start and end.
You get boobs but no cheerleader in uniform. Skin is cheaper than costume design, so we're often treated with obligatory full back and frontal nudity, courtesy of lengthy shower scenes, instead. Cheerleader Massacre painfully retells and remakes The Slumber Party Massacre. It is poorly written, shot, acted, it rehashes old stuff and treats its returning actors the way it handles everything else.
