J. Sinister Hulk appears in a monster costume during the film; it is the same costume seen in the AIP-TV production "The Eye Creatures," shot in Texas by writer-producer-director Larry Buchanan in 1965. There were other props from previous AIP releases in this film,as well as the spoof "Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine" (1965), which also featured the bikini-clad Susan Hart in a rare leading role.

Obviously one shouldn't take this film very seriously at all if one plans on enjoying it in the slightest. If you can loosen up quite a bit, this film does have some fun silly bits. Plus can any film with both Boris Karloff and Basil Rathbone possibly be all bad? I don't feel so...both fine actors try hard to keep their dignity in this Scooby Doo-like (without Scooby Doo) Beach Party entry.
