Editorial Reviews

Eegah! (also known as Eegah! The Name Written in Blood) is a 1962 film starring Arch Hall Jr. as Tom Nelson, Arch Hall Sr. (credited as William Watters) as Robert I. Miller, Richard Kiel as Eegah, and Marilyn Manning as Roxy Miller. The movie was directed by Arch Hall Sr. (writing and directing under the pseudonym "Nicholas Merriweather," and acting under the pseudonym "William Watters"), and was also written by Hall and Bob Wehling.

Plot
Eegah (Richard Kiel) is a giant prehistoric caveman living in the middle of the desert. One night after a party, Roxy Miller (Marilyn Manning) is driving home when she comes across Eegah. She tells her boyfriend Tom Nelson (Arch Hall Jr.), and her father Robert Miller (Arch Hall Sr.) about the caveman. Her father, a professional photographer, decides to go into the desert to look for the creature. When he fails to show up at his designated pickup time, Tom and Roxy go into the desert looking for him.

Roxy is soon kidnapped by Eegah and taken back to his cave while Tom searches for her. In Eegah's cave, Roxy is reunited with her father, who tells her that he has begun to communicate with the caveman and has developed a theory as to the creature's astounding longevity. When a frisky Eegah expresses what seems to be romantic interest in Roxy, her father, fearful that the creature may kill them both if he is rebuffed, suggests she put up with as much of it as she can bear. Eegah never tries anything too explicit, though, and Roxy even ends up giving him a shave before the pair is able to escape. Crushed, Eegah follows them back to civilization, and a final confrontation ensues.

Hall Jr., then being promoted by his father as an Elvis Presley-style teen idol (with mixed success), warbles several tunes, all of them based on a female name ("Vicky," "Valerie," etc.) during the film- despite the fact that his on screen girlfriend's name is Roxy.

The film attempts elements of traditional shlock-horror and youth comedy genres. It also contains echoes of the 1960s "beach party" genre. (Description From Wikipedia)

This movie for what it is, a 1950 teen horror film that tries to promote a hopeful teen idle, had all the makings of a fantastic Bad Movie Night Cinema movie. Richard Kiel (Jaws from The Spy Who Loved Me) plays a pre-historic teen giant who falls in love with a modern teen girl, you know that can't end well. Kiel actuallly gives a very touching preformance during a scene where he tells his mummifyed family how he loves his new teen girl and now she is gone. He doesn't speak in this roll other than a bunch of grunts and groans but during this very touching moment in the film he conveys his loneleness very well. The rest of the movie is what it is, Hollywood trying to make a buck off the latest teen horror craze of the time. Grab a few beers, sit back and enjoy the movie on a rainy or snowey afternoon.

Intergalactic, super-omni-stars, Arch Hall Jr. and Marilyn Manning, prove beyond any hope of doubt, that their performances in THE SADIST were indeed a fluke. In EEGAH!, the duo play a pair of fun-loving "teens" named Tommy and Roxy, who encounter the lumbering, towering cave man (Richard Kiel- THE PHANTOM PLANET) of the title. Roxy is abducted by the troglodyte, and taken, along w/ her dad (Arch Hall Sr.!), back to his cave lair. Somehow, after much dullness, the non-action culminates at a pool party. No amount of brain-smashing intoxicants can render you numb enough to hear Arch Jr. warbling away at his abominable love songs! As awful as this movie is, it still pales in comparison to Hall Jr.'s other catastrophic film event, NASTY RABBIT! Learn the lessons! Heed the warnings!...

Very bad movie. If my wife had not gone to school with Marilyn Manning, I would not have watched this film. This is a good movie to play solitaire on your iPhone while watching it. Also, a good cure for insomnia.

As you might expect, there is a Mystery Science Theater 3000 narrated version of this movie.
