9/28 "Nightmare Sisters” Returns To VHS This Thursday Night:




Press Release: David DeCoteau’s hard to find 1987 cult classic, “Nightmare Sisters”, notable for featuring three of the greatest scream queens of all time together in one feature, returns to VHS for the first time in years this Thursday night from SRS Cinema.

“Buck-toothed Melody, bespectacled Marci, and chubby Mickey are socially awkward sorority sisters. Desperate for some fun, they invite a trio of equally nerdy fraternity pledges over for a party. The party fizzles and the guys are on the verge of leaving when the girls try to liven things up by holding a séance. The crystal ball they use at the séance is cursed and causes the girls to become possessed by a succubus. The suddenly sexy (and mostly nude) girls share some pie and a bath and then set out to seduce and murder their guests.

The girls take on new personas to help them trap their prey. Mickey becomes a bikini-clad jungle girl, Marci transforms herself into a pigtail-sporting naughty girl, and Melody changes into a wild rock chick. The boys fight temptation and try to find help for the girls. The situation gets more complicated when the boys’ loutish fraternity brothers show up looking to score. “Nightmare Sisters” stars legendary scream queens Linnea Quigley, Brinke Stevens, and Michelle Bauer and is directed by cult filmmaker David DeCoteau.”

The VHS release is unlimited, but only the first 30 copies sold will be signed by director DeCoteau. PreSales start this Thursday 9/29 @ 7pm EST. Copies are expected to start shipping in Mid-Oct, just in time for Halloween.
