The Chaser

★★★☆ – (2008) – A former detective who uses prostitutes to track whomever stole some of his women ends up searching for a serial killer. The complicated but clear plot is engaging throughout thanks to swift editing, touches of humor, and grueling suspense. Takes enough jarring turns to keep one glued to their seat in anticipation of how it all unfolds.

Cheerleader Camp: To the Death

★☆☆☆ – (2014) – Cheerleaders travel to a training spot where their own kind were murdered a year before. A cheap and ugly slasher with lame kills, lame humor, and a lame outcome. Every character is either a vapid pain in the ass, an overly smug victim, or a cheesy red herring. Incredibly short, but still dull.


★½☆☆ – (1985) – A group of female friends take a trip to the desert where they’re assaulted by rapists. Does plenty of preaching about the social statures of men and women, but never signifies a point as this feels more like a rip-off of Last House than anything singular or eventful. Has so much nudity that the mere thought of women’s lib is rendered moot early on.
