Diablo is a biker gang leader executed for the murder of a young woman. A year after his death, it's time for Spring Break. Football players Skip and Ronnie head to the beach, where Skip meets Gail, the sister of the woman who was murdered a year ago. All the fun and glory of Spring Break, however, is about to turn into a living nightmare when a mysterious person in a biker outfit begins to kill people by electrocution. Could it be that Diablo has returned from the dead? Written by
I really did like this one. Umberto Lenzi proved that he could make a decent, competently made picture with "Welcome to Spring Break" (or "Nightmare Beach" if you will).
The movie was shot down here in South Florida and stars John Saxon as- gasp!- a cop! A maniacal biker is on the loose and the locals suspect it may be a serial killer back from the grave. The all clad biker uses his motorcycle to electrocute poor college Spring Breakers. The story, especially by 1988, is nothing new. But I dug it anyway. There's hardly any gore to speak of, but plenty of cheesy thrills to get my knocks off. Bikini babes frolic and bad 80s rock music blare throughout.
Expect direct-to-video fare and you may be pleasantly surprised. Also nice stray away from the overplayed cannibal scene.
