A social worker, still reeling from the loss of her architect husband, investigates the eccentric, psychedelic Wadsworth Family, consisting of a mother, two daughters, and an adult son with the apparent mental capacity of an infant.
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

No doubt one of the poorest films that was to be produced in the 60's. I know it must have seemed like a good idea at the time. Both beach movies and horror films were popular at the time, and it probably seemed like a sure bet for the people in charge, but I can't lie, this is terrible. The monsters are so unrealistic, your mouth will drop, they even have hot dogs crammed in their mouths. Then there's the human actors: some guy with a southern accent, an easily excited maid, and a loser scientist. While nothing really bad like "Pod People" or "Manos...", but this still qualifies as one of MST3k's greatest works. Wait, I take that back, they're all great works!
