The movie itself is nothing special. It looks like it was shot in a week with a budget of $100.00. The plot of this movie is very simplistic. You have 5 teenagers, ages 16 to 18, who go around stripping cars and selling the parts to a low-life junk yard owner. The police set up a sting and catch them in the act. One of the kids has a gun and he kills a cop. The movie ends with an exchange of gunfire and two dead kids and two dead junk yard men. The rest of the kids are arrested and escorted to a jail.
To give you an idea how low the budget was for this movie the only car you see being stripped is an old Kaiser. They smash the windows, take the radio and battery and torch off the exhaust system. The car is pushed onto its side to better access the exhaust system. The next car they're to strip is the beautiful '59 Buick mentioned earlier in this review. Since the budget is so small they don't dare destroy this beautiful car. They show the bottom of the already stripped Kaiser tilted onto its side and we are supposed to believe it's the expensive Buick convertible. There are other things in this movie which make you break into laughter. For cover, the kids ride around in a live poultry truck. When they get to the next car to strip they unload some of the caged chickens to get their chop equipment.Read more ›
Lights, Action, Camera!.....!
(That extra exclamation was because this is a double feature.)
Alright, this is the opening to Wild Guitar and Archie, is riding his motorcycle around. Now the thing about Archie is...he is very strange looking. I'm not trying to put him down, he may be reading this(gimmie some fan-mail if you are Archie!) I don't know if he is ugly or not, I'm a dude after all, but he just looks...strange. Alright he's at Hollywood and vine and Roman's Chinese theatre or something. Awesome shot on location.
Directed by Ray Dennis Steckler. Now that's what I want to see when I'm starting a movie. Now this girl, she plays Archie's love interest, and she's weird looking too! She is pretty, don't get me wrong, just weird looking is all. So they are already a great couple.
Coffee and donut 15 cents. I just realized that your's truly's keyboard does not have a 'cents' sign. I will be sending back this lapped-top. The Review! What the heck am I thinking? Ok. We didn't miss much they were debating a gasoline tax or something. Alright, now like 15 people just said "Spearfish." One after another. This is strange. The girl is looking up at like five feet above her when she speaks to him. He's not a giant! Eegah is the movie that has the giant!
Now he's singing a song and Vicki, his new gal, is looking at him like a confused bird. And what do we have here? Ray Dennis Steckler, in his role as Steak. This movie has it all!Read more ›
makes absolutely no sense to me. A couple of other versions are available, but I don't know if they are complete or not.
In THE CHOPPERS (Arch's film debut), Arch and his gang (including the grandson of Charles "Ming the Merciless" Middleton) vandalize autos and sing such classics as "Monkey in my Hatband" and "Koko Joe". In WILD GUITAR, Arch is Bud Eagle, rock & roll singer, in a rags to riches story. Songs include "Valerie" (not the one by the Monkees) and the unforgettable "Twist Fever", sung on the beach. Watch Arch skipping along the sand, trying to emulate Chuck Berry's duck walk; it's one of the great moments in bad screen history. Also look for the DVDs of EEGAH! and THE SADIST, and hopefully somebody'll give us NASTY RABBIT and DEADWOOD '76, Arch's other pictures, plus a CD of Arch's song stylings (I cobbled together my own from the movies' soundtracks). Mr. Hall, wherever you are, please know that your fans love you!

If you are looking for the perfect Kitschy B-movie then this is it! Obviously not Grammy worthy but nonetheless, a great throwback to the early 60s. Love the cinematography.... Read morePublished 6 months ago by Beth Cunningham
Another one of those worst/best movies. The story and acting are just awful, but there so bad that it is actually quite fun to watch.Published 9 months ago by Stephen P. Collins
The acting was dated and cheezy. The songs (for the time) were surprisingly good.
All in all, I enjoyed the movie.
A movie so bad it's good? Well, this one almost makes it. But let's try to
be a bit positive. Arch Hall Sr. Read more
