Product Description

A classic episode of the cult television series (in which an amiable space janitor and his metallic pals are forced to watch and deliver a sardonic running commentary on terrible movies), "Eegah" stars the gargantuan Richard Kiel (who would later become known for his sensitive portrayal of Jaws in a couple of the Bond films) in the title role as a still-kickin' Neanderthal looking for a little love in swinging 1960s California. One of the worst (or best, depending on your point of view) films ever to be featured on the show, this excruciating waste of celluloid provides ample fuel for Joel and the 'bots to deliver a wildly diverse, sustained barrage of hilarity (including an in-depth discussion of the widowed dad dichotomy of '60s sitcoms) at the source material's full expense. Enjoy, and remember to "watch out for snakes." (You'll understand after viewing.) --Andrew Wright --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Mystery Science Theater 3000 never lets me down, so after reading some good reviews about their take on the film "Eegah", I went out and purchased it. I had already bought the film "Eegah" without the MST3K commentary and it was hilarious, but the additional comments from Joel and the robots made it even funnier!!
"Eegah" revolves around a prehistoric caveman who lives in the mountains of California in the 1960's - how this occurs no one really knows, but it's just accepted as if this sort of thing happens everyday! One day a young woman accidently hits the giant caveman with her car and thus begins her (and her father's and boyfriend's) quest to find this caveman so they can take pictures of him and prove to the world that he's real. One would think they would want to get in touch with someone who might be a little more learned on the topic of cavemen, but not these people! They want pictures! What results is a hilarious display of stupidity and annoying behavior by all characters.
I enjoy this DVD because the original uncut film is included. You can also set up the DVD so that you can see what was cut from the original to make room for the MST3K antics! I would highly suggest this film to any MST3K fan. It's one you'd definitely want to have in your collection!!!!!

This movie is so bad that Crow and Tom have to wash the Eegah off of them after it's over. There are some horrible things in this movie: Richard Kiel, of course; spasmodic dancing; truly icky singing; the slightly too friendly relationship between father and daughter; and, worst of all, Arch Hall, Jr.'s face and hair. Yes, for as long as there have been movies, there have been bad, seemingly inexplicable movies, and this is certainly one of them. It all starts with greasy Arch's girlfriend encountering a "giant" on the road; no one believes her story, of course, until the gang finds a big footprint several feet off the road. Suddenly, her dad, who dresses and acts like some kind of scientist, is convinced that some kind of prehistoric creature is living in the hills and sets off to find him. What happens is that Eegah, Richard Kiel wearing one of the fakest beards and moustaches I've ever seen, finds him. The trip to pick up dear old dad gives Arch a chance to show off his dune buggy in the desert-he has water in the tires, you know-but, wouldn't you know it, Eegah comes along and snatches Roxie. Back in Eegah's cave, Roxie and her dad meet Eegah's mummified family, drink nasty sulfur water, and try to humor the big fellow. Quite ickily, Roxie decides to give her father a shave and seems to enjoy it just a little too much. Meanwhile, Arch is whining all over the desert sands and cliffs in search of his girl. In the end, we learn that you can take Eegah out of his cave, but you can't take the caveman out of Eegah.
Eegah is the role Richard Kiel was made to play, seeing as how he just has to run around in a fake animal skin and growl and mutter incoherently.

I was a bit hesitant after reading a few negative reviews about this episode, but now I have no regrets. This has become overnight, my favorite episode.
Personally I love Joel and Mike equally as hosts, but Joel is really cool and funny on his episodes. And the bots are as hilarious and perhaps even more lovable than they are on the Scifi Channel episodes, but even on Scifi, they didn't lose much of their charm even if they did change a little. And I prefer Dr. Forrester and TV's Frank to Pearl Forrester, Bobo, and Brain Guy (although I do like the latter set of villains a lot).
But getting back to this particular episode, I can't see how anyone didn't enjoy this. From the absolutely brilliant segments including the hysterical invention exchange, a discussion about the subtlety of hell, single-parent familes in '60s sitcoms, and the most memorable of all being the one where the bots alter Joel's face so he looks like Arch Hall Jr. These are some of my favorite segments and are must-sees for any fan.
And of course the movie....a poor quality, laughably bad teen movie about a caveman named Eegah (Richard Kiel) still alive in the 1960s, who falls for a teenage girl named Roxy (Marilyn Manning) after taking her and her father (Arch Hall Sr.) captive and then follows them to the city after they escape with the help of Roxy's butt-ugly, dorky, annoying boyfriend Tom (Arch Hall Jr.) mind-numbingly cheesy, but quite fun.
It's made even more fun by the outrageous jokes cracked by Joel and the bots, particularly Crow, whose caveman impersonations highlight the movie (When Eegah is making passes at Roxy, Crow growls out, "Eegah like get caught in rain" and after being shaved by Roxy (eew!

I had the horrid horrid misfortune to see this movie sans Joel and the 'bots and it hurt, it hurt a lot. Towards the end I was thinking about blowing my brains out, I seriously wanted to hurt Arch Hall, sr. and I wanted to cut out Arch Hall, jr. vocal chords.
So for those reasons I assumed that the MST3K crew would be able to turn this trainwreck into a laughterpiece, and while there where some jokes that had milk almost coming out of my nose ("Hey where's they're collection of dead people?") and who could forget the disembodied voice going on and on about snake, it is still painful to watch Eegah.
I would almost argue that this movie is more disgusting than "Manos" (I say almost because I don't want to get beaten up.) Roxie shaves her Dad, does up his tie and then takes him with her to a party. Her "Boyfriend" isn't much better. At any time he breaks out into song and you can't help but join in with Joel and the 'bots for Eegah to beat him senseless.
Maybe it's just me, but this movie even with the crew going at it, and the thankful segment breaks (Which really are hilarious. Joel get's turned into the ugly teen in the movie) is still to painful to be unleashed on an unsuspecting public.
Whatever you do, do NOT watch Eegah without the MST3K crew there to help you.
Oh and Watch out for snakes!
