Description by OLDIES.com:
Eegah is one of those rare existential movies that comes but once in a lifetime. Long criticized for its inept amateurishness, Eegah, when viewed in the new millenium with an open mind, is really an avant-garde classic - a film that defies all convention. The minute the hand-drawn credits hit the screen, you know you're in for a unique experience. Produced and directed by Arch Hall, Sr. under the pseudonym Nicholas Merriwether and starring the one and only Arch Hall, Jr., who (despite taking shots on the chin from critics for his acting abilities) creates the ultimate baby-faced rock & roll hero. Giant actor Richard Kiel makes his starring debut as the last surviving stoneage caveman. Smitten with a beautiful teenage girl, he invades a rockin' pool party to steal her away from her guitar-playing boyfriend. This is the third of Arch Hall, Jr.'s acting extravaganzas (the previous being The Choppers and Wild Guitar). Arch would go on to star in several more Fairway International films including the unforgettable "slasher" film The Sadist. Richard Kiel went on to play more very tall people including the steel-toothed villain "Jaws" in Moonraker and The Spy Who Loved Me. Incidentally, cult director Ray Dennis Steckler (Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living And Became Mixed Up Zombies) seen with his perennial starlet Carolyn Brandt, is the party guest who gets thrown into the pool during Eegah's climactic rampage.
A sexy blonde teeny-bopper falls in love with a million-year-old troglodyte she and friends find living in the desert. A cult camp classic.
From the annuals of shlock horror comes this gem, a stone age man trapped in modern-day California who finds love.
