Mindless, Goofy Fun
17 June 2013 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

Aspiring college cheerleader Cassie Stratford (Jena Sims) consumes an experimental drug that grants her beauty and enough athletic ability to make the cheer squad. The drug has an unforeseen side effect -- Cassie starts to grow and grow and grow.

Let me be up front on my choice to give this film a 6. That rating is purely based on the "fun factor" and not on any critical merit. The acting is nothing special (though I have sen worse) and the effects are rather poor. This should not count against them, though, because they obviously knew it was going to be cheesy.

The cameos they were able to secure are impressive. Ted Raimi has a decent sized role as a scientist, and both John Landis and Roger Corman appear as professors. The scene with Landis and Corman alone makes the film worth watching for any horror fan.
