Alternate Versions

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.

Why not just rent a porno movie?
6 May 2005 | by lazarilloSee all my reviews

OK, this is a harmless enough movie I guess, but it was one that really helped do in the horror genre by initiating the whole "scream queen" phenomenon where actresses of very dubious talent (Quigley, Stevens, and Bauer) and directors of extremely limited skill (Decouteau, Jim Wynorski, and Fred Olen Ray) started churning out no-budget "horror" movies that were little more than Playboy videos of attractive woman cavorting around in the nude for most of the running time. Of course, sex and nudity have long been an ingredient in horror movies, but they are not the ONLY ingredient. It's pretty cynical to paper over a total lack of talent and production values by cramming in as much T and A as possible and then try to sell it to supposedly maladjusted horror fans who, of course, can't get a date with real women so are going to spend Friday nights renting this crap.

And after doing their part to bring down the horror genre, these same filmmakers apparently decided (perhaps rightly so)that sci-fi fans were even more pathetic, and thus they came up "sci-fi erotica" like "Femalien" and "Emmanuelle in Space" (which even Jaqueline Lovell and Krista Allen couldn't make suck any less). Then there are the "erotic thrillers", but the less said about them the better. All of which begs the question--if the only thing you're really looking for in a movie is sex and nudity, why not just rent an actual porno?
