-->On the night of August 25, 1963, the Del-Aires were just wrapping up a very raucous set at the Angel Lounge in Lodi, New Jersey, when two police officers arrived at the club to investigate a noise complaint. Unfortunately, two career criminals – Thomas Trantino and Frank Falco – happened to be at the club celebrating a successful heist they’d pulled earlier that day. Sgt. Peter Voto entered the bar first while his partner waited in the patrol car; he was immediately ambushed by the pair and ordered to remove his clothes. A few minutes later, Voto’s partner Gary Tedesco – an unarmed probationary officer – came inside to see why Voto hadn’t returned; he was likewise taken hostage and ordered to strip. Trantino and Falco then shot the helpless kneeling police officers in the head, killing them both. Falco was shot by police a few days later while resisting arrest and Trantino gave himself up. The Del-Aires disbanded shortly afterward due to “creative differences.”

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The Del Aires were a moderately successful UsefulNotes/NewJersey-based band. In the season episode guide, the Brains briefly stopped ripping on the turkey of a film to mention that The Del-Aires are really pretty good.

Added DiffLines:

* WTHCostumingDepartment: The monster suits in general are rough, but the sausage-mouths are particularly bad -- the actors inside were forced to paw their victims, since there was no clear way they could bite them, and what function they serve (scrubbing villi?) is left to the viewer's imagination. Even the producers apparently realized how absurd they were after shooting; both the [[https://fffmovieposters.com/wp-content/uploads/57367.jpg theatrical poster]] and comic adaptation instead depict the Horrors as having fangs, with the latter [[http://www.mrpevney.com/images/comics/horrorPartyBeach/horrorPartyBeach_53.jpg touching up film stills just to hide them]].

Added DiffLines:

* ItsNotSupposedToWinOscars: Del Tenney's response to those who criticized it. He wasn't trying to make high art; he just wanted to make a movie that would make money (which it did) and have fun doing it. To that end, he succeeded.

Added DiffLines:

** Elaine is fretting about being attracted to Hank, but feels guilty since it's because Tina is dead. Her father urges her to go after him - and does this ''while Elaine is going to her funeral''.

* DesignatedHero: Hank. He's a guy who hates fun, for some reason about being too old. ([[DawsonCasting I'll say.]]) The fight on the beach is caused by his girlfriend's flirting...you know, the girlfriend he pretty much broke up with not just five minute ago. He actually starts the fight, and comes close to actually ''killing the lead biker by strangling him.'' The people helping in the fight had to pull him off, and then he tries to break free, like he was a deranged criminal.

He also couldn't be bothered to go get some sodium ''to fight and kill some monsters that have been murdering women left and right''.

* TheyJustDidntCare: Most notably, the monster costumes in the slumber party scene, for whatever reason, are completely different, looking more like mossy swamp creatures rather than the distinctive gill-men design. The movie later tries to lampshade the fact with a news reporter remarking on their "different forms", but it just raises further questions, since those specific creatures are never seen again.

* {{Padding}}: The movie drags a bit following the revelation that elemental sodium can kill the creatures.

* {{Padding}}: The movie drags a bit following After the revelation that elemental sodium can kill the creatures.creatures, the movie goes into a long segment of the scientists trying to figure out how to find the creatures, where to get the sodium, and other tedious minutiae that drags out a long time and probably should have been cut.
