Going Ape For Horror Movies

1943 "The Ape Man" with Bela Lugosi

 1933 "King Kong"

1968 "Planet of the Apes"

1969 "Night of the Bloody Apes"

1995 "Congo"

1949 "Mighty Joe Young"

 ...and, venturing into ape-man -

1970 "Trog"


  1. Great picks. I think we find apes so scare because they are so intelligent and not too far genetically from us.

  2. Congo is an abomination!! The book is 10 times better than the film. Congo (the movie) is the perfect example of a focus group film--and it suffered because of it.
