Reviews [click links to read more]:

“Some of the acting here was also surprisingly decent for this type of micro-budget fare and especially considering the low bar set by the first movie, and the ‘killer’ is using all this robotic tech and drone tech to kill everyone off, which was actually pretty unique and fun, even if the CGI for it was abysmal.” Jeffrey Long

“Lots and lots of nudity mixed with lots and lots of CGI blood. The acting gets worse as the breasts get bigger so watch out. Let’s be honest though, you aren’t going to check out Cheerleader Camp II for award-worthy acting. If you are looking for a campy good time, you could do a lot worse than this one.” Slasher Studios

“Mechanical devices are picking off cheerleaders and their easy conquests at a training site. A story is barely existent, characters do nothing significant, and the point is rather dopey. Solely gets by on incredible female nudity.” Splatter Critic

“The cute but aspiring actresses are otherwise wearing bikinis or sexy athletic ensembles. The title is, indeed, only half pertinent. Half the movie takes place in and around baths and showers used as a pretext to contemplate the female body employing extended close-up pans of glorious bottoms and boobs.” Tales of Terror

“It’s a slasher where the killers are primarily some Phantasm II style metal contraptions with surprisingly large-in-scope sinister motivations behind it plus an unexpected albeit ridiculous feminist (as obvs written by a man but hey he’s trying) final twist and that’s more than the first cheerleader massacre tried to accomplish, right?” Tony the Terror

“All of the actresses are stunning. Julia Lehman is terrific and so is Jennifer Titus who plays an investigative reporter. From a strictly “guilty-pleasure mindset,” this film succeeds.” Zisi Emporium for B Movies
