Night Fright (1967)
At one point, I thought it had to be almost over so I checked to see how much time was left. Thirty minutes. Are you freakin' kidding me?! The movie only clocks in at around 75 minutes. How can there be a half hour left? I kept checking because I thought I must somehow be mistaken, but it was not to be. So I resigned myself to finish watching so I would never question whether to view it again.
So here's the plot, such as it is. A monster starts killing local teens who go parking, and have dance parties in isolated spots down by the lake. John Agar is a tough talking sheriff who won't take any guff from the teens. I hope they're supposed to be college kids, and not in high school because they're far too old. There's dancing, preening, jealousy, and ignoring the sheriff's advice. Plus there's a man in a monster suit.
