Hell works better when it's subtle

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.
