Plot Summary: 

PSYCHO BEACH PARTY is an insanely (literally!) fun romp on Malibu Beach in 1962 -- it's what happens when Gidget, Frankie & Annette, and Alfred Hitchcock are given a shotgun marriage. Teenage tomboy Chicklet Forrest desperately wants to be part of the surf crowd. The one thing getting in her way, however, is her unfortunate tendency towards multiple personalities ... and her most dangerous alter ego -- voracious vixen Ann Bowman -- has nothing less than world domination on her mind! Add men in drag, a B-movie star, and a villain of a mom who would make Joan Crawford cringe, and you've got a zany comedy that the Associated Press calls "fiendishly funny!"  What better way to spend your summer?  ~ RATED PG-13
