A reporter for a college newspaper infiltrates the cheerleading squad.
”…Fast pacing, bizarre supporting characters, ridiculous action, and funky dialogue. Drive-in fans will be plenty amused.” - Mondo Digital
Jack Hill spent the Seventies specializing in tough female characters: girl gangs (SWITCHBLADE SISTERS), women in prison (THE BIG DOLL HOUSE; THE BIG BIRD CAGE), turning Pam Grier into a star with COFFY and FOXY BROWN, and the “cheerleader” line of drive-in favorites with THE SWINGING CHEERLEADERS.
Kate, an undergraduate at Mesa University, goes undercover as a cheerleader for her college newspaper in order to expose “female exploitation in contemporary society”. Instead of oppression she finds love, friendship and a bigger fish to fry: corruption in the football team, headed up by the coach and his pals.
A Tarantino favorite, THE SWINGING CHEERLEADERS features a cast of cult favorites including Colleen Camp (WAYNE’S WORLD; CLUE), Rainbeaux Smith (CAGED HEAT; THE INCREDIBLE MELTING MAN) and future Playmate of the Month Rosanne Katon.
