Driving through the desert, Roxy (Marilyn Manning) is attacked by a caveman, Eegah (Richard Kiel), but can escape. (What a caveman does in a modern day desert though is never explained.)

When Roxy tells her dad (Arch Hall sr) and her boyfriend Tom (Arch Hall jr) though, they simply won't believe her, and an excursion to the desert shows no sign of any caveman at all. However, later that day, dad decides to try to find the caveman again ... and is instead himself found by Eegah, injured and brought to Eegah's cave. Good Roxy goes to the desert looking for her dad, but she too is abducted by the caveman - who soon enough takes a liking to her, and eventually brings her some flowers (!). Roxy tries her charms on the caveman to trick him into letting her and her father go, but the plan almost backfires when the caveman wants more than she is willing to give. Eventually though, Roxy and dad escape, and fortunately, Tom in his dunebuggy (a very cool car, actually) drives by to give them a ride.

Eegah though can't forget Roxy, and soon enough, he leaves his home, the cave, and takes to the city in order to find the love of his life. Dad in the meantime has persuaded Roxy, who just can't get the caveman out of her head, to accompany him to a party - where coincidently Tom is playing a few songs with his band -, where Eegah finally catches up with her, beats up a few of her admirers, including Tom, before being shot by the police, who has been on his trail for quite some time. Roxy, who felt kind of drawn to the caveman, breaks out in tears.

By the way, director-to-be Ray Dennis Steckler (who did Arch Hall jr's next film, Wild Guitar) has a small role in this one, ngetting thrown into a swimming pool by Eegah.

 

Arch Hall jr's second film, made before the wacky Wild Guitar and the wonderful The Sadist, Eegah is very probably Arch Hall jr's weakest film, it's neither as weird as the former nor as brilliant as the latter, and it makes the least out of a promising (if in the meantime a tad overused) idea, playing it neither seriously enough to make it trashy, nor tongue-in-cheek enough to make it funny, most of the time it's just boring. There are a few fun scenes though, like Roxy trying to fight off Eegah's advances and Eegah bringing Roxy flowers (it has to be seen to be believed), plus the dunebuggy is exceptionally cool, but in all, that's not enough to make a good or memorable film. Pity.
