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

Prince of Space (1959) — Sci-fi (N/A)

Ohh, yes, how about a review for the Mystery Science Theater 3000 version of this CRAP film Prince of Space (1959).

I highly recommend that people go out and watch MST3K, it is just an intelligent and captivating show about the worst-of-the-worst cinema (perhaps) ever made. There are some most wonderful quotes for this episode:

“Grown-ups of the corn.”

“Woody Allen asked me out.”

“A rare Godzilla-free day.”

“Truman Capote sent to fight Krankor!”

“Samuel Barber’s ‘Adagio for Young Japanese Children'”

There is so much stuff there that is sure to make you laugh if you have a brain, appreciate cinema and comedy and can tolerate the shenanigans of a truly awful film.

I don’t give MST3K viewings a rating because it just doesn’t work that way, but I just say that all MST3K is awesome. Go watch it all.

— thumbs up —
