I pray and hope that you’ve never seen the movie Eegah without having seen the Mystery Science Theater 3000 version of this film. It is the story of a prehistoric caveman that happens to live off a cave off the main highway of some American town (that’s a great plot for a movie in 1962). There’s a kid who’s the “hunk” of the film, but really his face makes you want to throw up. I think they said his face was like a Cabbage Patch Kid version of Elvis… haha!

As far as MST3K episodes go, this one isn’t as funny as Prince of Space, Manos: The Hands of Fate or Hercules Against the Moon Men. I’d stick with those if I were you.

The prehistoric man is played by the guy who played the character Jaws from a couple of the James Bond films. He’s an absolute giant, and his face is terrifying.

7/10
