The Film Detective Proudly Presents...

Mystery Science Theater 3000's Favorite Seven-Foot-Tall Caveman Returns as Never Seen Before in Special, Restored Collector's Edition of 1962 Cult Classic, Available on DVD and Blu-ray November 26, 2019.

Primitive Passions Turned On!

"Eegah" Returns with a Bone-Bleaching 4K Restoration!

Synopsis:

1/4

There's rock and roll, hot rods, and of course, Richard Kiel as a seven-foot-tall neanderthal rampaging through the desert! This thrilling comedy follows Eegah (Richard Kiel), a prehistoric caveman who is nearly run over by Roxy Miller (Marilyn Manning) on her way to a party. Forming a romantic interest in the young beauty, Eegah holds Roxy and her father (Arch Hall Sr.) captive in his lair. It's up to local gas station attendant Tom Nelson (Arch Hall Jr.) to rescue his sweetheart from the raving brute!

Despite its campy prehistoric origins, the legacy of Eegah has stood the test of time. In 1993, the movie was picked up for an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000 (1988-1999), a comedy series that made playful commentary on entertainment's most-notorious B-movies, recently revived on Netflix in 2017. The episode further immortalized the film's most famous, satirical line, "Watch out for snakes," a comment noticeably dubbed during post-production. Eegah embedded itself so deeply into the culture of MST3K that the show took to the road in 2017 for a live Watch Out for Snakes Tour.

Exclusive Special Features:

In addition to the film, this must-have collector’s set for any cult fan includes...​

  • The 1993 Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K) version of the film

  • Interview with MST3K creator,  Joel Hodgson

  • BRAND NEW interview with film star Arch Hall Jr.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

"The Film Detective has given Eegah the royal treatment, with a new 4k restoration sourced from the original camera negative. The movie looks terrific... This is simply a wonderful treatment for a cult classic that has needed such a spruce up for a long while."
