Spoof of 1960s Beach Party/Gidget surfing movies mixed with slasher horror films. Florence Forrest, a not-so-innocent girl in 1960s Malibu, becomes "Chicklet", the first girl surfer at Malibu Beach. Only Florence suffers from dissociative identity disorder and, occasionally, her alter ego "Ann Bowman", a sexually aggressive, foul-speaking girl, comes out, during which time several beach goers are found murdered. The suspects include Chicklet herself, surfer Kanaka, exchange student Lars, and even Chicklet's own mother.Written by
The sequence where Monica, Lars and Chicklet are standing on movie screen at the drive-in was 'Charles Busch''s first day of shooting. See more »

Why you picking on us? We didn't do nothin' wrong.
Captain Monica Stark:
Because I don't like you. Don't like the way ya talk. I don't like the way ya walk. Don't like ya haircut. You kids think ya own this beach- think it's a teenage world. Well, you're dead wrong!

Before there was SCARY MOVIE, there was PSYCHO BEACH PARTY! That says it all, man!
Charles Busch gives us Charles Busch in a chilling, wicked satire of teen slasher flicks, drive-in movies, and hormones as they were in the 1960s. There has been nothing like this movie since PIZZA WAITRESS WITH THREE HEADS. Golly!
Puns and double meanings fly like sand on a windy day. Plus there is hidden wisdom such as, "Chastity lost is never found." And gay love as a cure for digestive problems? Who knew?
Gidget meets Mae West, and Matt Kessler with a Swedish accent. I could go on, but I won't. This is a Shakespearian play within a movie within a movie. Go figure. See it and have fun.
