Psycho Beach Party
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), 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. At the beach, Chicklet crosses paths with burnt-out surf guru Kanaka (Thomas Gibson), dreamy surfboy Starcat (Nicholas Brendon), and stylish homicide detective Monica Stark (played, impeccably, by Charles Busch himself).
