MONSTER FROM THE SURF (1965) *** ½

If you crossed The Creature from the Black Lagoon with Beach Blanket Bingo, what you got would probably look a lot like Monster from the Surf. John Hall stars and directs a cast of teeners whose constant swinging beach partying and go-go dancing are interrupted by a goofy, but cool looking monster. There is some great music (except for that bonfire serenade), a surfing sequence filmed in color, hateful dialogue (“You really didn’t think I’d make love to a cripple!”) and some really bad rear projection driving scenes. If a man in a suit monster attacking go-go dancing teens is your meal ticket, consider the dinner bell rung.

AKA: Beach Girls and the Monster.
