Psycho Beach Party (2000)

Film details


Black comedy. Florence lives in a town in Southern California near the beach community. Her best friend is Berdine, a bookworm. Berdine has her nose put out of joint when Florence manages to become the lone female surfer in an all-boy gang. However, while all is fine on the surface, Florence, or Chicklet as she is now known, has a few personality problems: when she sees polka dots or any other circular object, she takes on two other personalties: an 'experienced' older woman named Anne Bowman, and the sassy Tylene. Florence begins to worry that she may be responsible for a series of killings that are taking place in the town, rapidly reducing the surfing population.
