Because it's a "monster musical," the first three hours of this 78-minute film take place at a beach where [[DawsonCasting suspiciously]] [[TheyJustDidntCare middle-aged]] [[DawsonCasting teens]] boogie to a live band while making lame attempts at humor. A college grad named Hank and his immature and unpleasant lady pal Tina drop by. The two bicker, Tina's flirting sparks a brawl with a biker gang, and finally the girl runs off to go swimming and is killed by a monster.

** Also, HypocriticalHumor, as one of the drunk guys says he hates drunks.


Added DiffLines:

* DawsonCasting: Elaine calls Doctor Gavin "Daddy" in every other line of dialogue but if she didn't you'd think she was his wife, as they both look about forty.


Added DiffLines:

* DullSurprise: Both Hank and Elaine.

Turns out someone's been dumping barrels of radioactive waste into the ocean, causing the skeletal crew of a sunken ship to mutate into frog-fish things that proceed to hunt down and kill every young woman they can find. The elderly and ineffectual Dr. Gavin, assisted accidentally by [[EthnicMenialLabor black servant Eulabelle]], discovers that the things are vulnerable to sodium. Taking their time, the heroes eventually get around to tracking down the monsters' lair (as the kill count climbs ever higher), work up the energy to get a load of sodium, and then throw it on the horrors of Party Beach.

* DecoyProtagonist: Hank, Elaine, Dr. Gavin are presumably the heroes of the movie, but almost every time the plot moves forward, it's because of Eulabelle's actions.

* FaceRevealingTurn: Completely and utterly botched via BehindTheBlack. A drunk guy finds someone slumped in a wrecked car, and chats amiably until the (breathing) corpse's head [[BehindTheBlack turns to the camera]], revealing half his face is a bloody mess. Except the drunk was staring at the wound ''the entire time'' and only reacted when it became visible to the audience.

* RhymesOnADime: Eulabelle uses occasional but ubiquitously pointless rhymes as homilies: "You don't see me sittin' around moanin' and groanin' all day." "What are y'all doin' sneekin' and peekin' in the dark for?" It's the most fun you'll get out of this movie, and the best acting performance given.

* UseYourHead: In a move which has wisely not been adopted by professional fighters, the biker gang uses their leader as a battering ram. But then again, Hank stood still.

* BriefAccentImitation: Hank puts on a Southern accent whenever he speaks to Eulabelle; there doesn't seem to be any reason for this, almost making it look like he's talking down to her. Which doesn't work because Eulabelle actually does some thing useful.

[[TheIncrediblyStrangeCreatures "The first horror monster musical,"]] released in 1964 by director Del Tenney. It is not a real musical, as it spends the first ten minutes with some musical accompaniment.
