Vaughn stars as the title teen, a caveman who inhabits part of the dinosaur-populated wasteland with his symbol-maker father. He is warned never to go across the river because of an evil monster. Teenagers will be teenagers, however, and Vaughn goes across, finding not a monster but an old man.

The old fellow dies and Vaughn finds a book which tells about past civilizations in the 20th Century. This well-conceived cheapie from Corman, even has its own postholocaust message--something you don't usually find in his films. Love interest Marshall, as the maiden, is--appropriately enough--a
