Storyline

Taking bad taste humor to unprecedented levels, Cheerleader Autopsy is an amiably sick low-budget horror-comedy from Writer/Director Stu Dodge!..Robert Firsching, All Movie Guide. The Plot: When a freak accident strikes down a bus load of nubile cheerleaders, all hopes seem lost for the Fighting Beavers of Stinkwater High...until an Alzheimer-afflicted mortician, his opportunistic college-dropout nephew and a simpering night janitor discover that one of the girls is still alive despite her gruesome disfigurements. The three men soon find themselves pitted against each other in a winner takes all face off for control of the last of the Beavers, and the recipe for an astonishingly potent healing elixir! If you're a fan of those late 70s/early 80s camp movies, and would like to see more dead cheerleaders than you can shake a stick at (if you're prone to shaking sticks at things), then CHEERLEADER AUTOPSY is for you! The DVD of this feature includes the DIRECTOR'S CUT of the movie, ... Written by Tony Widley

The Mortician and his pals
30 March 2010 | by TromafreakSee all my reviews

What kind of low-life degenerate would come up with something so sleazy, so vulgar, so juvenile? Whoever is responsible for this pointless mess... I'll be honest, I'd kinda like to shake their hand. Cheerleader Autopsy is possibly the most Sub Rosa-ish movie I've come across. And by the way, that was meant as a compliment... I think.

A pitch-black humored, white-trashed story of a bunch of cheerleaders who are horribly (and unrealistically) mangled in a ridiculous-looking bus accident. The local mortician/sheriff, and his college drop-out nephew make it their business to prevent these bodies from ending up at the new dog food processing plant which opened across town. These low-lifes have their work cut out for them; especially since the mortician has Alzheimers, and the nephew is a half-wit. Although, compared to their pal, the janitor, I guess they're doing pretty good. We are subjected to the breaking of taboos, the creation of new ones, and of course, the breaking of them too. Not really a storyline or anything, Just a bunch of silliness, mostly involving badly-mangled corpses, or something equally repulsive. Cheerleader Autopsy is truly a new low in Z-grade cult cinema.

An awesome title for a B-movie if there ever was one, but I can see how this one could even rub most B-movie fans the wrong way. Hell, even most die-hard Sub Rosa fans (is there such a thing?) might feel they're above this one. Me? Well, I definitely laughed more than a couple times, but the disappointing truth is, Cheerleader Autopsy isn't nearly as shocking as it thinks it is, or as funny. This movie just ain't good enough to be as wacky and obnoxious as it is. Actually, it's quite terrible. And not in that humorous/outrageous way that makes B-cinema awesome. Although, Cheerleader Autopsy tried, and I honestly believe it meant well, but I'm going to have to recommend something a little more worthwhile, like Gore-met Zombie Chef From Hell, or Sick Girl. Or if you're determined to discover some shot-on-video, Sub Rosa craziness, at least pick up something with a little style, like Shatter Dead. As for Cheerleader Autopsy, it's not quite as good as the title suggests, but I've definitely seen worse. And if you're like me, and you find graphic, yet fake-looking castrations to be hilarious, you might not hate this movie. 5/10
