THE HORROR OF PARTY BEACH [1964]

Director Del Tenney is most known for the mostly unknown unabashedly bad The Horror of Party Beach.
Radioactive dumping resurrects the corpses at the bottom of the ocean into strange fish people zombies that kill the folks of a beach-side community.
There's plenty of sloppily choreographed beach party dance sequences.  Overly long moments of shots so poorly lit you don't know what your'e looking at.  Numerous cutaway sequences focused on unknown 35-year old teenaged character's throwaway gags.  Dreadfully composed shots that don't seem to know what they're supposed to be focusing on.  And of course the endless kitschy surf-rock music that is just plain embarrassing.
 If this sort of bad is what you're looking for then look no further because it's pretty damned entertaining when in the right mood.
