Konga

Well, previously on Movie Night #27, we've checked out films about evil women and evil children. But I couldn't find anything this year that really made the grade. So when all else fails, you can always fall back on Mad Science. Here we have Konga--and Michael Gough as a scientist that creates a giant ape and decides to use it as a weapon against the people who have wronged him. And of course, this is Gough--who most of you know only as Alfred from the Tim Burton Batman movies. Here he is a perfect mad scientist.

And Konga starred in a Charlton Comics adaptation that spun off into an actual twenty-three issue run. Go figure. Anyway, enjoy. And also: science.

The cheapest way to snag Konga on DVD is a double feature with Yongary: Monster From the Deep.
