Critics reviews

From its rude but delightful opening credits sequence—nothing but a go-go dancer gyrating faster than seems humanly possible while a voice chants the word ‘psycho’—to its multiple endings mirroring Chicklet’s multiple personalities, PSYCHO BEACH PARTY works to break the seething subtexts of the films it’s skewering free, and succeeds magnificently. This is the genre-bending masterpiece that CABIN IN THE WOODS, with all its tired mechanics and missed opportunities wishes it could be.
