Interestingly enough, Ray Dennis Steckler actually went out and promoted this movie on his own. It was originally going to be produced by Fairway-International Pictures (Arch Hall Sr.'s studio), but Steckler was dissatisfied and bought the rights to his movie. He then went across the United States promoting his movie as half of a double bill. The other movie he had was "The Beast of Yucca Flats".

This was billed as the first "monster musical", but "Horror at Party Beach" was also being promoted as that. However, Steckler's movie came out a full month before "Horror", making it the first monster musical.

Apparently the building that the carnival portions were filmed in was an abandoned Masonic temple owned by Rock Hudson. Another movie familiar to MST3k fans that was filmed in that same building that same year was "The Creeping Terror".

This movie has amazing connections to a lot of other bad movies. I just love watching it, and revelling in the unadulterated badness.

Is there something I'm missing? WHY ARE THEY TRYING TO BLOW UP THE CAR??? D: I get it that at the end they want to kill the Intersect agents, but why do they want to blow up the car before that? WHY??? WHYYYYYYYYYY????

109 - Project Moonbase - almost 5 years ago

This episode probably has the second-most annoying sound of the whole MST series: that awful, incessant ERP ERP ERP ERP ERP ERP ERP ERP alarm that is present in about half of the feature. I can't think of any other noise that gets under my skin other than the machine from The Projected Man.

612 - The Starfighters - about 3 years ago

Apparently the Starfighter (the plane) had such a negative reputation in West Germany that it was a joke there that the cheapest way to get a Starfighter was to buy a small plot of land and then wait.

Yeesh! The sexism here is pretty painful. Really, really, really painful.

506 - Eegah - over 3 years ago

On a whim, I looked up Richard Keil (guy who played Eegah), and found that he actually was in quite a few shows or movies. It was really surprising to see him as a Native American shaman in Kolchak: The Nightstalker.

404 - Teenagers from Outer Space - almost 3 years ago

I have to say that this movie was surprisingly good. For what looks like a really low-budget movie, it still manages to engage me more than films like "Mitchell" or any of the Transformers movies. It was surprisingly good!

What is it with Colman Francis and having major scenes with people shooting other people with guns from planes???
On another note, this definitely is his worst film, if that's possible.

416 - Fire Maidens of Outer Space - about 3 years ago

Soooooooooooo....The Atlanteans had enough advanced technology to move their entire population to a moon of Jupiter. And yet.....THEY DIDN'T KNOW THAT ONLY THEIR ISLAND WAS SINKING?? D: What, were their scientists too busy smoking to tell everyone that they only had to relocate to another place on Earth, which could easily be done since they had incredible amounts of technology?

621 - The Beast of Yucca Flats - almost 3 years ago

I know that I will probably be alone in this, but I think that "The Beast of Yucca Flats", along with the riffing, approaches something close to being a surreal piece of art. All of the camera angles, done specifically to not show the mouth to save the money and work of syncing the audio to the video, along with the incredibly abstract phrases plopped out by the narrator (Coleman himself), just makes this movie hilarious to watch. I wouldn't be able to make it through without the riffing, though, but the riffing adds in another element that just makes it so memorable.

Thank you, Francis Coleman, for trying to cut corners and not work as hard as you could have. In doing it, you have created something much greater, and much worse, than you could have ever imagined.

301 - Cave Dwellers - almost 3 years ago

I know that this is going to sound really crazy. But trust me, I'm telling the truth. The fourth movie in this series (so either the movie right after Cave Dwellers or the movie after that) is also a sequel to Troll 2. Apparently, it is listed as being sequels for BOTH the Troll series and the Ator series. This movie is called Troll 3 Part 2 (The Blade of Power). It doesn't feature Miles Okeefe, but it DOES still have a character named Ator. It also features the goblins from Troll 2, and there is a bizarre scene where one of the goblins makes out with Ator's wife.
