Richard (Arnold Lessing) finds it hard to get a grip on life, he doesn't want to become a marine biologist as his father Dr Lindsay (Jon Hall) expects him to, he loathes his stepmother Vicky (Sue Casey), feels eternally responsible when an accident he caused left his sculptor-friend Mark (Walker Emiston) partly paralyzed, and the surfer crowd he likes to hang out withdoesn't get his father's approval. On top of that, a sea monster starts killing Richard's friends, and eventually, everybody suspects Mark to be the killer, and when Mark makes a getaway stealing a police car, everybody sees that as a sort-of confession. Only Richard refuses to believe in his firend's guilt and starts a little investigation on his own.

Mark has found some evidence that could relieve him of all suspicion and heads for Richard's dad's seaside home ... where the sea monster has just killed Vicky and now attacks him. In the fight that ensues, Mark tears the mask off the monster, and it's revealed to be Richard's father. Richard and the police arrive at the place only when Mark already breathes his last but engage Richard's dad in a car chase that finally sends Doctor Lindsay over a cliff to his death ...


In the 1930's and 40's, Jon Hall was the male star of the island girl movies (opposite Dorothy Lamour and Maria Montez), which were kind of predecessors of the beach party movies in the 1960's - so it is only fitting for him to star in a beach party movie too (and even direct it) - and if you throw in a monster as well (especially one as goofy looking as this one), this spells recipe for desaster.

The resulting movie thus is by no means great, it's a badly written and cheaply produced monster movie that's more than a bit on the stupid side - and boy is it much fun to watch, a weird genre mix that's indecisive it it's supposed to be a family drama, a sci fi flick or a beach-themed comedy, complete with musical interludes, stupid plottwists and a car chase with Jon Hall in monster costume. Somehow you can't beat that - bad movie lovers will love it!
