Psycho Beach Party
Psycho Beach Party is a manic party-mix of 50's psychological thrillers, 60's beach movies, and 70's slasher films in this over the top dark comedy! The story focuses on Chicklet Forrest, a sixteen-year old tomboy who's desperate to be part of the in-crowd of Malibu beach surfers in 1962. She's the typical American girl - except for one little problem: her personality is split into more slices than a pepperoni pizza! Among them is an elderly radio talk show hostess, a male model named, Steve and the accounting firm of Edelman and Edelman. Her most dangerous alter ego is a sexually voracious vixen named Ann Bowman who has nothing less than world domination on her mind. Surf's up for Chicklet and her friends in April 2019!
RATING: MATURE AUDIENCES DUE TO SUBJECT MATTER AND LANGUAGE
"...a comic trash compactor of a play that takes an already silly genre and sends it to camp heaven."
