    Up till this time I have missed watching this so called cult film/ Made with Drive - Ins in mind I'm sure its not a bad film. I was amazed to see a very young Richard Kiel who played jaws in a number of James Bond Films. In this movie he was EEGAH the giant who basically scared o... read morenly 3 people until last 20 minutes. Archie Hall Jr what a hair job, don't see that today. Also a beautiful ford station wagon made a number of appearances throughout the movie. 3 1/2 stars. 10-27-11

    Well it lives up to it's reputation as one of the worst movies of all time. It is bad in every way, the acting, direction, screenplay, editing, you name it, it stinks. But at least it's so bad it's entertaining.

    Definitely one of my all time favorites! How can anyone not love this movie?? It is SO bad that it's actually completely fantastic.

    It couldn't have been filmed in more than 2 days with about $50. Just totally awesome. So many incredible lines, scenes, songs, and amazing actin... read moreg. Arch Hall Jr. is the worst/best actor of all time, and he is at his best/worst here.

    I can't really do it justice, I can just say SEE IT!! You will not be disappointed!

    Richard Kiel in a loincloth is a frightening experience. Arch Hall, Jr. on the other hand, is the stuff of nightmares.

    An absolutely disgusting and unintentionally perverted movie that I nonetheless have a fondness for. It probably reveals a lot more about the filmmakers than they intended. Arch Hall Jr. is really hard to look at and listen to, and his dad isn't much better.

    MST3K ALERT! Richard Kiel vehicle (and I like Kiel) about a caveman who some how lived undiscovered in the California mountains...I guess. This is a movie to only see via MST3K, otherwise it's just painful.

    Jaws as a caveman; didn't see that coming *snicker*. A mish-mash of stupid 60's humor and dancing of all things. Crappy.
