This. Movie. Hurts. A LOT!

In the early 1960s, bug-eyed space cadet Roxy drives out into the desert and directly into the path of a club-wielding giant with a fake beard glued to his face. It's EEGAH, a poor caveman who has somehow survived the Neanderthal age and is living just outside of L.A. in a cardboard cave. No one believes Roxy's tale, except for her incredibly greasy dad and her icky boyfriend. Dad decides to hike out into the desert to see if he can discover the truth behind Eegah, but when he is late coming home, Roxy and icky boyfriend Tom drive out in their wacky dunebuggy to search for him. Soon, Roxy and her dad are held prisoner in Eegah's garbage bag-draped cave and Tom must find them before Roxy falls victim to a caveman's lust!

Gag. This is pretty bottom-of-the-barrel godawful stuff. It's silly, goofy, stupid and cheap, and at it's worst it makes for some pretty uncomfortable viewing. See Roxy shave daddy and Eegah! See Roxy try to pry herself out of Eegah's slimy embrace whilst sweaty dad looks on and does nothing! Ugh, it's pretty gross. Even the MST3K version is hard to sit through, even though Joel and the Bots do their best to make the nauseating sequences more bearable. There's some decent music in here for fans of 1960s beach-twisty crud, and fans of schlock will be delighted to see a cameo appearance by Ray Dennis Steckler and then- wife Carolyn Brandt as the Couple By The Pool. But other than that, this film has little to offer in the way of entertainment and may only be appreciated by true hardcore fans of bad movies.
