What makes it truly notable is the utter bizarreness of certain scenes. Full Review

The first draft nature of the screenplay is betrayed by its repetition. Full Review

Rating: 1/4 -- While some awful movies only became known following their ribbing on Mystery Science Theater 3000, several films that were featured on the show were famous -- make that infamous -- long before their Satellite of Love slots. This was one of them. Full Review

Description by

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.

Product Description:

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.

Plot Synopsis:

From the annuals of shlock horror comes this gem, a stone age man trapped in modern-day California who finds love.

eegah Movie Lover: from edgein -- May, 12, 2005

Did any performer ever have the complete package like Arch Hall, Jr? I mean, that singing, that smooth way with a line, the effect on quote the great man himself "wowee wowee wow!" This is one of the great films, period.

Watch out for Eegah! Movie Lover: from Gering, NE -- March, 4, 2005

Odds are you're checking out these movies because you're like me, you like B movies. Here's another good one; very 60's, lame acting and leaves you with the question "who said 'watch out for snakes'?" Richard Kiel is Eegah, who was also in Happy Gilmore. Not a lot to say about this one, but it is a goofy movie that's worth at least one viewing.

Average film, but still has its entertainment value. Movie Lover: from Normal, Illinois -- June, 18, 2004

I first saw this movie on the TV show MST3K and thought the film itself wasn't too bad. Some scenes that were meant to be more humorous were kind of lame, but the rest of the movie was fun. It still has the best line ever, "Watch out for snakes!"
