SON OF KONG (1933)


This one goes down with sequels to BLAIR WITCH, THE EXORCIST and ARTHUR as a clueless attempt to reap extra box-office gold while negating the qualities that made the original so memorable. Kong’s kid is no gigantic, uncontrollable mix of violence, id & soul, but a tame & harmless overgrown teddy bear (teddy gorilla?) with a lame funny bone. Hard to believe so many worked on both projects. (But what a nice poster.)

WATCH THIS, NOT THAT: Stick with the original KONG.
