A quartet of cheerleaders (Kerry Sherman, Hillary Horan, Alisa Powell, Sherry Marks) along with their coach (Jacqulin Cole) drive to the next game of their team when their car breaks down in the middle of nowhere - but fortunately they hitch a ride ... with the school's creepy janitor (Jack Kruschen), who just happens to be a Satanist who puts them all under a hypnotic spell, then tries to rape one of them, Patti (Kerry Sherman), but is struck down by a heart attack in the nick of time, which also lifts his hypnotic spell. The girls want to report it to the local Sheriff (John Ireland), but are unaware that he and his wife (Yvonne De Carlo) run the local Satanists coven - and so our heroines are locked up in a shed to be sacrificed that same evening. But Patti seems to have some supernatural powers, so she breaks them all free, hypnotizes their flesh-eating guard dogs, and they all try to make it to safety. Too bad though that the Sheriff has since gathered a gang of local Satanists, and they are very peculiar about getting the blood sacrifice they have come for ...

Genre fave John Carradine plays a bum who pops up in the story every now and again, but with no real consequences for the plot, Charles Chaplin's son Sydney (in his last movie) can be seen as the Sheriff's right hand man, a monk who can't quite let go of his old habits - and he's genuinely funny doing so.

 

Now Satan's Cheerleader is by no means a masterpiece of forgotten classic or anything - but at the same time it's a great example of the now forgotten art of cobbling together an entertaining drive-in movie, combining horrors with comedy, some action, nudity and a bit of sleaze, all blended into paper-thin yet very enjoyable romp and carried by a bunch of sexy girls of various forms and sizes surrounded by a couple of veterans who resonate with genre fans to this day.

To put it shortly, this might not exactly be art - but a fun trip down memory lane!
