Varsity Blood follows the cheerleaders and football players of Hogeye High School as the retreat to a Halloween party at a farmhouse. This particular group carries with them a dark secret that has someone thirsty for revenge. Once the students arrive at their destination, they discover that a killer dressed as their high school mascot is intent upon killing every last one of them.

Varsity Blood is directed and written by Jake Helgren who wrote the 2012 horror feature Bloody Homecoming. The film stars Lexi Giovagnoli of Bloody Homecoming, relative newcomer Wesley Scott, and Debbie Rochon of Tromeo and Juliet in the lead roles.

I am a big fan of Debbie Rochon. My expectations weren’t sky high for this film but I found this to be an entertaining slasher with some conceptual similarities to the original Prom Night. Though the trailer appears generic, Jake Helgren understands and has paid mind to the inherent camp value within the film’s concept. Varsity Blood will be available on DVD August 19th, so you can decide for yourself then. In the meantime: Read out review here.
