A young girl is killed at the beach in Malibu. Professor Otto Lindsay suspects that it is some form of mutated fish. However, his son Richard, who was a good friend of the girl, thinks that it is a madman who has a grudge against Richard and his friends. Soon the list of victims grows to include one of Rich's surfing buddies, Rich's bitchy stepmother Vicky and his friend Mark who was crippled in an auto accident.

Did You Know?
The score for The Beach Girls and the Monster was arranged and conducted by Chuck Sagle, and a few of the musicians assembled for the soundtrack were members of the surf band The Hustlers (who are known for their songs "Kopout," "Inertia" and "Wailin' Out") from Riverside, California. In the book, Pop Surf Culture, written by Brian Chidester and Domenic Priore, the soundtrack of The Beach Girls and the Monster "has got to rank up there among the best, no fewer than 13 different sections of full-bore, deep-reverb tank surf instrumentals throb the soundtrack."

Is that any way to talk to your stepmother?
Stepmother. You're not fit to be anyone's mother.
During the opening credits for the theatrical release as THE BEACH GIRLS AND THE MONSTER, we hear a vocal version of "Dance Baby, Dance", and see mostly the beach girls dancing along with one quick shot of the monster. During the opening credits for the American International Television release as MONSTER FROM THE SURF, we hear an instrumental version of "Dance, Baby, Dance", and see only surfing footage. Other than the title, the credits themselves are otherwise identical. See more
