Based on Charles Busch’s hilarious long-running stage play, Psycho Beach Party is a wickedly fun satire of Hollywood movie genres. Chicklet (Lauren Ambrose, Can’t Hardly Wait, HBO’s Six Feet Under), a wannabe surf-girl with a split personality, becomes the primary suspect after a string of humorously gruesome murders terrifies the teen set. When the clues take her to the beach, the fun and suspense begin.
