Psycho Beach Party one of our favorite campy summer movies. We love it for the music, art direction, and modern social themes — Rocky Horror Picture Show meets Beach Blanket Bingo! Psycho Beach Party is the film version of the off-Broadway play, which we still have yet to see on stage but it’s on our list. Set in Malibu in 1962, the movie is a fun parody of both mid-century beach movies and 1980s teen horror flicks with more visual appeal than either genre typically offered. Surf’s up!
