Directed by Larry Clark.
Creature Feature Productions, Los Angeles, 2002.
Photographer/filmmaker Larry Clark (Kids, Bully) was the unlikely choice to helm this cable feature based on the old Roger Corman cheapie, which starred Robert Vaughn in the title role. But Clark's preoccupation with teen lust and decadence is very much in evidence in this story of wild youth in a post-apocalyptic world. Like other films in the Creature Features series of remakes of AIP monster movies, this only bears the slightest resemblance to the original, but it's a novel approach that Clark fans will want to see.
Teenage Caveman is a stylishly radical sci-fi thiller starring an impressive cast of up-and-coming actors including Andrew Keegan, Tara Subkoff and Richard Hillman. Controversial director Larry Clark and writer Christos Gage take the horror genre to brave new places with this very original film featuring terrifying special effects. Get ready for a wild unconventional ride into a prehistoric future you'll never forget!
David is frustrated with the repressive laws of his cave-dwelling tribe. Restless, stubborn and defiant, his attitude problem turns deadly when he is forced to kill the tribe leader, his father, to protect his girlfriend. Now, banished to the dangerous and unexplored zone outside their cave, he and five of his teenage friends quickly discover that the 'old' world they only dreamed about has evolved without them - into a complex, seductive and ultimately terrifying nightmare beyond their wildest imagination!
