Goofs

The mob of dancing teens marching down to the boat dock just prior to the big boat chase are seen carrying a number of Tiki torches, almost as if they are marching on Doctor Frankenstein's castle. However, the scenes surrounding the boat chase were all filmed in full daylight. See more »

Tweaked Out Twisters
17 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is so bad....it's great!!! A cult classic that's under-appreciated. Raquel Welch in her film debut...the ultra geeky Gary Lewis and the Playboys...a Big Bopper type dude who sings and twists and looks exactly like Bill Clinton...horrible dancing... this movie has it all! Michael Blodgett's character does one of the most embarrassing dances ever - where he slaps his legs while going, "Uhhh!". The big slow-motion fight scene where the two 30 year old teenagers roll on the murky waters of lake Arrowhead looks like something Ed Wood would have rejected. James Stacy put out a good performance and he stands out in a movie full of stiffs. This one is a laugh riot, although unintentional. It's not often that a bad movie can be so entertaining. It's so bad, it makes "Beach Blanket Bingo" seem like "Citizen Cain". Gary Lewis makes William Hung seem like Tony Bennet. If Simon Cowell ever sat through this, he probably wouldn't recover.
