A detective embarks on a mission to track down a woman in L.A.'s seedy nightclubs, only to come face-to-face with a blood-thirsty cult of lethally beautiful prostitutes. Is he the next victim of Hollywood's demented Chainsaw Hookers?

Three frat boys sneak into the Tri-Delt sorority to witness the initiation of new pledges and are caught. The pledges must go to the local bowling lane and steal a trophy, aided by the unwanted frat boys. An accident causes the trophy to break, releasing an evil imp who then begins wreaking havoc with the teens, who begin suffering an attrition problem.Written by

The sorority is Tri Delt (Delta Delta Delta) but the paddle is a Beta Theta Pi paddle. No explanation is given for this. See more »
Old Uncle Impy is just a little bit cranky. No fun being locked up, especially in a bowling trophy.

The 1988 UK Colorbox video release (as "The Imp") was cut by 1 min 9 secs by the BBFC with edits to closeup shots of 2 women being spanked with a bat and a scene where a naked girl is threatened by woman wielding a whip. See more »
This might be the crown jewel of director David DeCouteau's career, which isn't saying much. Combine the plots of Demons, Chopping Mall and Slumber Party Massacre and you get SBITSB. Its not as entertaining as those movies, but its cheesy fun. There are a few laughs and the overwhelming number of bad jokes are sort of endearing. Modern audiences will eye-roll at all of the sexism, racism and fat-shaming. But you expect stupidity and cheapness in films like this. Surprisingly the cast is good and the cinematography is wonderful in HD. You can watch a lot worse in the 80s sleaze genre. Bonus points as this is probably the best acting job by the cool, sleazy but sometimes wooden "Scream queen" Linnea Quigley. She's a believable punk goddess here with lots of cute, bad-ass and nuanced moments.
