Beach Girls and The Monster: Terrible Movies #150
"Teenagers" (thirtysomethings) with dubbed voices shimmy, Twist, and Frug until one is "killed" (slightly choked) by a "monster" (a guy in a conehead guppy mask covered in phony seaweed) while swingin' "rock-n-roll" (rock-n-roll) plays. Then someone thinks a footprint found on the beach could be from a fish (really). Extended surfing, walking, and Frugging interludes combined with puppetry, singalongs, and rear-projection driving sequences stretch a ten page screenplay into a full-length feature. It's a Beach Blanket Bummer (with a monster). I watched it at Youtube, and you can watch it below, but don't.
