Trivia: The East Coast tried to grab some of the
sudden success of the West Coast's beach movies, when THE
HORROR OF PARTY BEACH was filmed in the Stamford,
Connecticut area. In 1964, it was billed as the "First
Horror Musical," but we MSTies know better....the
similarly-hyped 812-THE INCREDIBLY
STRANGE CREATURES WHO STOPPED LIVING AND BECAME MIXED-UP
ZOMBIES was released the year before.
