Nothing new to bring to the table

My review on my site FilmBizarro.com:

Plot: Dawn is a 17 year old rebelling girl, who just found out her boyfriend has been dating behind her back. When things just continue to go bad, her rage makes her parents sick of he, so they send her off to become a cheerleader. When trying to fit in with the other girls, things seem to be going worse. A witch travels 500 years, to our time, and possesses one of the other cheerleaders, and soon Dawn is the only one who can stop the witch.

Our thoughts: I've been waiting a long time for this film and I finally got my hands on it. From the title, you pretty much know what to except, 'cause I can't really remember a film that has had "cheerleader" in the title, and hasn't been a cheesy trash cinema. "Chainsaw Cheerleaders" is exactly that.

Plotwise it's interesting at times. Donald Farmer clearly put some thought into it, but most of the time the plot is either too out there, or our mind drifts away so we can't concentrate on anything else than the pictures on the screen rather than dialogue and explanations. The film starts off with scenes from year 1508, and I've always had a bit of a problem with low budget films having scenes showing old times. Luckily there isn't much focus on getting the "feel" of 1508, except for the clothes they were wearing, so it's not hard for it to be believable enough. When we're back to our time, we follow Dawn's little journey to becoming a..well, chainsawing cheerleader. It takes about an hour before the film starts to let out a notable amount of nudity and blood, and I guess that's both good and bad. The film was a lot more funny before it all started, but then again it got a bit more entertaining when we get some blood and titties. I guess I could weigh the pro's and con's of the two halves of the film, but let's just say that both are needed for the film to work. Like I mentioned earlier, there were a lot of times where I found myself thinking of anything but the film, while just looking at the moving pictures on my television. I found the film to drag a bit, and some things were just not needed in there. The thing that I liked the most in here would probably be the stereotypical cheerleaders and the stupid things that they say. There wasn't much more comedy than those scenes either really.

The film is very typical as far as ultra cheesy independent splatter comedies go, and if you're a fan of those, this is a perfect film for you. I used to be a lot more into these films about 5 years ago or so, because now I always seem to be needing that little extra to truly enjoy them, which I didn't find in this one. Like how "Bone Sickness" has awesome zombies and tons of splatter, but still being about as independent and at times cheesy as "Chainsaw Cheerleaders" is. Technical flaws like how the chainsaws are never really on in the film, or that we in a throat cutting scene can see that there's no actual cut, aren't the biggest flaws in the film at all. The problem was just that it didn't pull me in enough, and the jokes were too few or just not my taste.
