Terrible 1958 Science Fiction Film Ridiculed By Comedians
5 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

Back to the caveman days...with curious monsters around!

The star of this film, Robert Vaughn, has gone on record as saying that Teenage Caveman (1958) is the worst movie ever made...and the director, Roger Corman, later lied saying he never made the film at all. With that sort of reaction the flick is perfect comedy material for Mystery Theatre.

The guys make jokes about The Man From UNCLE, QM's The Fugitive series, William Shatner, cavemen touching each other, mis-placed music played over a guy in the film, bad acting, stock footage, fake monsters, Roger Corman budgets, etc.

Great comedy!
