When stripper Victoria (Lisa Glaser) is killed, her colleague Shady (Maria Ford) thinks she did it, because she had a dream about Victoria's demise, and has woken up with blood on her hands. Her roommate and best friend Cassandra (Karen Mayo-Chandler) quiets her down of course, but she can't shake the feeling there's something wrong with her. She even confesses as much to investigating officer Dekker (Eb Lottimer), but he doesn't really believe her - in fact he starts to date her before too long. When another stripper (Debra Lamb) is killed and a trail again leads to Shady (who's less than sure she didn't do it), but again, Dekker follows other leads instead, like the one leading to the strip club's DJ Ike (Tom Ruben) - who really is obsessed with one of the strippers, but that's not enough of a reason to kill somebody. It takes a few more dead strippers before Dekker finds out the real identity of Cassandra, and that she might be in possession of mind-altering drugs (intended for chemical warfare back in Vietnam) that she gave Shady to make her believe she did it. In the finale, Cassandra is about to kill drugged Shady when Dekker intervenes - to almost get himself killed too. In the end, it's actually Shady who saves the day when she shoots Cassandra dead.

Why did Cassandra do it thouigh? Because she was in love with Shady and didn't want to share her with other strippers.

 

Despite the title and most of the same creative team, Stripped to Kill II: Live Girls has pretty little to do with Stripped to Kill, apart from the strip club setting and a few supporting actors returning, most notably Debra Lamb, who only had a very small role in part one but gives the hottest dance performance (including fire-eating) by a longshot in this one. And quite frankly, Stripped to Kill II: Live Girls is the better movie. While the first one was a tired copmovie with the strippers added for a bit of sleaze appeal, this one really tries to come across as a labyrinthean thriller with its splashes of surrealism and some bizarre imagery inserted to keep everyone guessing.

That said, Stripped to Kill II: Live Girls is hardly a perfect movie: The culprit of the piece is just too predictable despite everything, the love story between the cop and the stripper is as cheesy as it is far-fetched and doesn't really click with the rest, and the killer's motive is just off. In all, not bad but miles away from being a masterpiece.
