Nightmare Sisters

This is one of the most that epitomizes the insane popularity of the scream queen during the 1980’s. There is no doubt, back in the day you could sell a horror movie just on their name being on the credits. This film features three of the biggest in the scene: Linnea Quigley, Michelle Bauer and Brinke Stevens, as three nerdy girls who are giddy about having a get together with three fellow male nerds. The thought that these three beautiful babes would have problems getting dates is kind of a joke, but this is a comedy. Because of a crystal ball that Brinke Stevens buys, the three girls get possessed and turn into mega-hot-babes, possessed by a succubus. The three possessed women eat the geek’s fraternity jock brothers, then go after the geeks. The geeks decide to call an exorcist to fight the succubus and free the girls so that they can get laid.

I knew I wasn’t gonna love this movie from the moment I saw the first scene, with a bad comedian doing a bad Indian accent. But soon after the film got rolling with it’s three leads, I realized that this isn’t really the kind of movie that I should take seriously. It’s a comedy, and a goofy one at that. The film I can compare this to the most is another DeCoteau film, Sorority Babes In The Slime Ball Bowl-O-Rama. It’s stupid, but it’s entertainingly stupid.
But let’s face it, as bad as the script is and as unfunny and stupid the comedy is, it’s all saved thanks to our three leads. The three women are beautiful as ever, and they have great comedic timing and chemistry together. There are many long takes in the film, and the first noticeable one is the one the three share as their ‘geek mode’ after Stevens brings a box of stuff she bought at a thrift store. You see that scene and it’s one long take of the three women talking, and they are really fun and don’t make it boring at all. They also share a bathtub scene, which is really interesting because of the chemistry together. These women look like they’ve had sex with each other in real life! I know, I’m a pervert, but the point is, these three women are great actresses that got stuck on a niche, which is kind of sad but hey, at the same time, they had a career and in a world like the one we live in, it’s hard to have a career in anything, particularly in a career that is so fun and beloved. But this film isn’t really recommended, unless you just want to see these three great women. Other than that, stick with Sorority Babes.
