Synopsis by Cavett Binion
This hysterically awful rubber-suit monster romp stars Jon Hall (who also directed) as an embittered marine researcher who is so incredibly annoyed by the rock and roll antics of the fun-loving teens who hang out near his Waikiki beach house that he decides to create a slimy fish-monster to silence them once and for all. The beast manages to wipe out a fair portion of beach bums and bummettes, but somehow the pesky kids just keep multiplying and coming back more annoying than before -- surfing, gyrating (to tunes by Frank Sinatra, Jr.) and throwing the odd clambake. Not a very distinguished comeback for former Ramar of the Jungle Hall, this nevertheless has a certain ugly charm, according it "so-bad-it's-good" status. Released to television as Monster from the Surf.
