Three plain looking sorority sisters (Linnea Quigley, Brinke Stevens, Michelle Bauer) decide to host a séance and invite their nerdy boyfriends to enjoy the fun. But when Omar (Dukey Flyswatter), a mystical shaman, suddenly appears in their crystal ball and tricks the girls into touching him, they’re suddenly transformed into ravishing succubi, determined to suck more than just souls. Will the guys be able to stop the madness before it’s too late?

Nightmare sisters start off with two pretty long scenes that sets everything in motion. One has our three scream queens in a long scene without even a cut! But let me tell you now, it might start off a bit slow but it really gets going later and this movie ends up being a whole heck of a lot of fun. Getting down to the brass tax here, three nerdy women (our scream queens in question) do some witchy things that result in them becoming extremely hot! Sadly, it also makes them want to kill their dates for the night. Keep in mind for a good while after the transformation into being hot these women are on the screen naked for a good portion of the time. I can only imagine the teens that went through puberty back in the 1980’s. Heck, it’s good now for old and washed up people like your fellow movie reviewer here.

So this movies is full of all the things I enjoyed about 80’s horror. Hot women that are usually naked and some corny horror stuff, but it actually works. If I can one complaint here about this one it would be that it would have been nice to have had a little more gore but the extra long scene of these chicks naked in a tub together kind of makes up for all of that. If you like the word of Linnea Quigley, Brinke Stevens, Michelle Bauer and director David DeCoteau, then that makes this one a must-own. If you want something fun from the 80’s to see that reminds you why so many people love movies from that decade you should check this one out as well.
