Alternate Versions

There is a alternate television version that is shown on The USA Network that is edited for language with all nude scenes cut. It also adds additional scenes shot for television that replace the deleted nude scenes including:
  • An alternate transformation sequence of the three girls wearing lingerié replacing the nude transformation scene.
  • An alternate pie eating sequence with the girls in lingerié.
  • A completely new scene of the three girls in lingerié jumping up and down on a bed in the bedroom. They are playing with balloons and blowing bubbles (to match up with the audio soundtrack). This replaces the nude bubble bath sequence.
  • A less explicit demon sex scene with Michele Bauer in her jungle outfit.
  • Also has a completely re-shot sequence when Linnea Quigley sings Hollywood Boulevard Boys, replaces the original which has some nudity.

Silly 80's fun
3 April 2019 | by annablair-19191See all my reviews

Nightmare Sisters isn't bursting with snazzy camerawork or sparkling dialogue, but the actors seem committed and go for broke. It's fairly amusing actually.

Linnea Quigley, Michelle Bauer, and Brinke Stevens play three college nerds who end up getting possessed by a wicked sex demon and turn into deadly vixens, seducing and killing a bunch of eligible guys.

It's stupid. It's SO stupid. But it's way more fun than you'd think it would be. There's not a lot of style and it was obviously shot with a super small budget ($40,000? Wow!), but the creators know how to keep us entertained and interested throughout.

Nightmare Sisters won't be for your more stuffy or pretentious friends, but it'll make for a great drunken party movie or a late night slice of cheese.
