Nightmare Sisters (1988)
Review by Bradley Frohloff

4 / 10
Nightmare Sisters doesn't quite have the same allure that Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama or even Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers has. Scenes are drawn out so long to pad the runtime, some scenes just use the same camera angle for minutes on end, there's not a whole lot going on outside of its general goofiness and bad acting. The movie is essentially an excuse to show some nude women, which I certainly don't mind, but aside from Michelle Bauer, the other two do nothing at all for me. I'm not sure what Linnea Quigley's appeal is, perhaps I need to see more of her movies to understand why she has such a dedicated fanbase.

I'm not quite sure exactly what the movie is trying to be, I'm guessing more comedy than horror, but my reaction to it is essentially the reaction the crowd gives to Bart Simpson after he's worn out his "I didn't do it!" bit on The Simpsons. There's a giggle or two to be had and I certainly don't mind Michelle Bauer getting soaped up in the tub for an inane amount of time but that's not going to cut it for a full length feature.
Nightmare Sisters (1988)
Review by Michael Mahoney

4 / 10
This movie is wholly too goofy for me to get into. I'm not entirely averse to silly horror movies - when I saw Terror Toons (2002) perhaps five years back, I sort of liked it. But there's a line to how much I can take, and Nightmare Sisters went far, far past it.

There's some appeal to the movie, to be sure. Linnea Quigley's a big name in horror, for good reason, having appeared in such classics as Graduation Day (1981), Silent Night, Deadly Night (1984), The Return of the Living Dead (1985), and Night of the Demons (1988), and she's a treat to see. Some of the other actors/actresses were decent, such as Brinke Stevens (perhaps the most attractive of the three girls) and William Dristas.

But Nightmare Sisters went overboard with it's comedic style. The beginning fortune-teller portion overstays its welcome ("Hokey smokes, that's a lot of ashes," I admit, did get a slight chuckle), and then it takes something like fifty minutes until we're given something resembling suspense. The somewhat famous bubble bath scene was okay, but again, after a few minutes, it doesn't really add anything to the movie aside from more skin, which we really didn't need.

I first saw this October 2017 during a horror movie challenge, and I was looking forward to it. What exactly I was expecting, I'm not sure, but I was disappointed then, and with a second viewing, I'm disappointed still. It may be a piece of 80's cheese, but it's far too cheesy for me.
