Movie Reviews

A MST3K 2 for one!
Timothy E. Jones | Phila., PA USA | 05/02/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I just received my MST3K EEGAH tape in the mail and lookedthrough it, and I got WA-AY more than I bargained for! The DVDversion has not only a crystal clear MST3K version of the movie BUT the full length unMSTied version as well for the MST-it-yourselfers like me!It is a great bargain for TWO versions of the movies, I only hope they do all of the episodes on DVD now.As for the central movie itself, EEGAH! Evolves around this caveman who is found along the side of the road, and this teenaged girl comes across him. After the girl tells her father about him, daddy goes a huntin' for EEGAH to study him (as he is some sort of an anthropologist), but vanishes. The girl (Roxy) and her boyfriend search for daddy, where Roxy is now kidnapped, EEGAH wants to do the nasty with Roxy, Roxy escapes, EEGAH tracks them to this pool side party, he tries to take Roxy back, but is fatally shot and puts the pool to good use.P.S.: Watch out for the snakes and the Cabbage Patch Elvis!The original full length movie is 90min longThe MSTied version (with all of the host segments) is 92min long"
Hell works better when it's subtle
Andrew S. Rogers | Stamford, Connecticut | 11/30/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As Joel Robinson points out in one of this episode's host segments, Hell is most insidious and destructive when its effects are sneaky and subtle. 'Eegah!' is a lot like that. MSTed-movie veteran Richard Kiel returns as the eponymous caveman, who wanders into town in search of the lovely Roxy, whom he had previously kidnapped and briefly held hostage along with her boyfriend and father. Creepy romance is afoot (especially when you realize that Roxy's father and boyfriend are played by Arch Hall Senior and Junior, respectively), along with strange pool parties, strange dune-buggy races, and strange songs sung by Arch Junior. In all, it's just a strange, and kind of icky, movie.Fortunately, Joel and The Bots are there to lead America back from the foaming mouth of the abyss. Thank you. Thank you. The host segments here are good ones (I've always liked the porkerina), but where J&TB really shine is in the theater, where they spare no effort to give this flick the riffing it deserves.In all, this is a great addition to any MSTie's shelf."
Ludicrous Movie, Hilarious Riffs
Andrew S. Rogers | 02/03/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Fair warning: if you have any aesthetic issues with the movies MST3K does, you'll go mad with this one. As it says in the Amazing Colossal Episode Guide, this is the worst of the worst. The good thing is, the worst movies offer the best riffs from Joel or Mike and the 'bots (see Hobgoblins from the Sci-Fi years for another example of this). And true to form, they make this garbage side-splitting. A great investment of your money, you'll watch this one over and over again."
