Storyline

While the hot rodders and motorcyclists are having a rock-and-roll beach party, a barrel of radioactive material is unloaded from a passing ship, plunges to the bottom and splits against a jagged rock. A black liquid oozes out and covers a shapeless mass on the ocean floor, which suddenly moves and becomes an encrusted vicious monster. Soon there are several monsters and they must have human blood to survive. Tina is the first victim, and football hero Hank Green and airhead Elaine Gavin enlist the aid of her science-professor father, Dr. Gavin, to solve and capture the killer. Not working fast enough to prevent the attack on twenty teen-agers at a slumber party nor the killing of three girl motorists, Dr. Gavin finds an arm lost by one of the monsters and discovers that only sodium will destroy the monsters whose composition is mostly water. Can they gather enough salt in southern California to put an end to this horror? Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

One of the funniest films of all time!!
23 January 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

How can you not love this deliriously silly scifi/horror/beach/musical!! Featuring the all time dopiest sea creatures ever, riot inducing racial stereotyping, the most non threatening motorcycle gang in history, dialogue that wouldn't cut it in porn, overweight beach bunnies, queenie muscle dudes and some of the most wooden acting this side of Charleton Heston. Even more inept and definatley more entertaining than "Plan 9". Features some suprizingly decent surf/rockabilly tunes by The Del-Aires. The best way to view this one is when its rerun on "Mystery Science Theatre 3000".
