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.

Quotes

Chuck Phillips: There, the door is locked and the window is secure. We're safer then the First National Bank. There's nothing more we can do tonight, so we might as well get some shut-eye.
Bobby: Shut-eye? Are you kidding me? In this place? Twice that homicidal filly, Sinistra, tried to knock me off, and that blob... he was no fraternity brother either!
Chuck Phillips: The only blob here is in your brain!

The Title Of This Movie Is A Big Misnomer!
20 May 2000 | by Brainy-2See all my reviews

Anyone expecting to see nudity in this film, be forewarned! It's the GHOST that's invisible and not the bikini!
