The Bad Film Society will hold their hot summer beach party at 6 p.m. Sunday, July 20, down in the dank, sunless Ashland Elks Dungeon.




The feature will be the 1965 ultra cheap "laff riot" "The Beach Girls and The Monster." Famous 1940s movie hero Jon Hall ("Ramar of the Jungle") directed himself in this piece of trash. It was his last film.




A pointy-headed, bulgy-eyed monster covered in seaweed is killing hot bikini-clad teen surf babes.




Highlights include dance sequences by the Watusi Girls from the Whiskey A Go-Go nightclub, a silly lion puppet singing along with the beach girls and a scorching soundtrack with lots of bongos composed by Frank Sinatra Jr.




The evening will begin with some daffy and unusual shorts sure to please and bewilder one and all.




Also stay tuned for the 10th episode of the serial "The Lost Planet" from 1953.




On the par with an Ed Wood movie, it's considered the worst serial ever made with unintentionally hilarious dialogue like "How are we going to find it"&

166;it's the Lost Planet." It was the last sci-fi serial ever made.




Members should bring a summer treat for the potluck dinner before the feature.




If you must, bring your trashy old videos for door prizes in the raffle.
