Trivia

Melody, Marci, and Mickey were all originally going to be completely nude after they transform into sex-starved succubus women. However, Brinke Stevens objected to the full-frontal nudity, so director David DeCoteau changed it to all three girls being just topless instead. See more »

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.

An Eye Candy classic
23 August 1999 | by Robbie-43See all my reviews

This indie film by the auteur DeCoteau is the single greatest influence for the creation of the Eye Candy Hall of Fame. The cast boasts of three members of the All-Century team: the ever-so-lovely Brinke Stevens, the majestic beauty of Michelle Bauer, and the sultry Linnea Quigley. Each of our extremely fabulous leading ladies give such a high-caliber performance that it sets the standards by how we at the academy judge our potential members. As actors, they strip down to the basics and bare their natural talents unlike any other ensemble in the history of cinema. Memorable performances are the seance-transformation scene, the kitchen scene, and the bathtub scene. The auteur DeCoteau has created a masterpiece that will simply blow you away.
