Overview
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 humorourly 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, DHARMA & GREG), dreamy surfboy Starcat (Nicholas Brendon, BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER), and stylish homicide detective Monica Stark (Charles Busch, HBO's OZ). PSYCHO BEACH PARTY also stars Matt Keeslar (SCREAM 3), Beth Broderick (SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH), Kimberly Davies (THE NEXT BEST THING), Amy Adams (DROP DEAD GORGEOUS), and Kathleen Robinson (SCARY MOVIE II).
