Storyline

Hiram Stokley is a recently desased corpse who learns that he has 24 hours to mastermind and perform one good deed in order to get into Heaven, so he enlists the help of his long deceased girlfriend Cecily, a ghost, to stop his greedy lawyer, Reginald Ripper and his henchman J. Sinister Hulk from claiming his estate for themselves and protecting his eligible heirs, Chuck, Lili, Hiram's cousin Myrtle, and her son who brings his beach party friends up at the mansion for a pool party while Reginald Ripper also employs his daughter Sinistra, and J. Sinister Hulk's slow-witted associates Chicken Feather and Yolanda to help them terrorize the teens, while dopey biker Eric Von Zipper and his Malibu Rat Pack bikers also get involved in pursuing Yolanda for a share of the estate.

Trivia

Originally announced in the end credits of 1965's "Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine" under the title "The Girl in the Glass Bikini," this effort was initially rejected by AIP, who added new footage featuring Boris Karloff and Susan Hart in a separate subplot involving Hiram Stokely, billed as 'The Corpse.' This is also apparent in Hart's bikini-clad ghost being superimposed into scenes featuring the original actors. The final release took place in April 1966, bringing the studio's popular Beach Party series to a close after just under 3 years. See more »

The Final Nail In the Coffin
2 April 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This film proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that the "Beach Party" genre was dead. After the previous film with Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello, American International thought they could pull the two of them back for one final picture. However, by the time the plans were announced Avalon was more interested in other roles and Funicello was busy raising her family. Instead we get Tommy Kirk and Deborah Walley who, unfortunately, don't have the chemistry that Frankie and Annette had together. The "Beach Party" series was one of the most enduring in film history. Too bad it had to go out with a whimper instead of a bang.
