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.
Linnea Quigley, Brinke Stevens and Michelle Bauer play ugly sorority sisters who are bored one night so they invite over three nerdy guys. As the lame party is winding down they decide to have a séance, which turns the three girls into real beauties looking for sex but they've also become deadly.
NIGHTMARE SISTERS is exactly the type of gold teenage males were hoping for back in the VHS boom days. If you're looking for high art or something that was nominated for an Oscar then you're going to be extremely disappointed. If you're wanting some cheap trashy fun with three beautiful women getting naked then you've come to the right movie.
The Scream Queen legends are in high form here as all three are extremely good in their roles. I thought they were each hilarious early on when we see them in their alternative looks. Quigley steals the film as a buck-tooth nerd. Stevens plays the nerd with big glasses and Bauer is the obese one. All of them are clearly having fun here but they get even better once they turn into the sexual goddesses. Yes, all three are naked throughout including a very memorable sequence where they're in the tub together.
Director David DeCoteau is obviously having a lot of fun with the material and for the most part this is a complete winner. The thing eventually runs out of gas during the final portion of the picture but this is still one of the better titles to come out of the 80s. Fans of the three Scream Queens will certainly want to check this one out.
