Audience Reviews for Eegah
This is a very underrated movie. Many reviewers do not seem to understand it. Roxy (Marilyn Manning) for instance is supposed to be a good, decent, good looking, "dingy" teenager of the early 1960's. She does a great job of portraying that. The scene where she comes to the swimming pool while Archie Hall Jr is singing is classic early 1960's and she is fabulous. Her silly questions and remonstrances out in the desert and in the cave with Eegah are those of an early 1960's good, decent, good looking, "dingy" teenager. This is a cult classic. Marilyn Manning, as far as I'm concerned, steals the show. Her reserved admiration for the poor ignorant cave man is just right. Give Eegah a break. It's entertaining and very reminiscent of the era. It was not meant to "Gone with the Wind" or "On the Waterfront". Come on! You have to have lived in the 1960's to appreciate it, I guess. Marilyn Manning is beautiful and talented. She deserves better! Give her a break!
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 only 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
How hilariously bad can a film get? Watch this and see.
