Films: Kongo (1961)
Location: Civilized Area
Height/Weight: Grows up to be the size of a skyscraper.
Summary: Forget that American junk with the big ape from the prehistoric island! This one is taking out the UK, and he's powered by SCIENCE!
History: Having inexplicably returned from presumed fiery death in the African jungle, Dr. Charles Decker comes back to London with the seeds of carnivorous plants and a young chimpanzee named Konga. Using the seeds to perfect a growth formula, Decker gives some to Konga, and uses him to kill those who would try and interfere with his love life. Because priorities.
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: Upon being fed too much formula by a careless individual, Konga grows super-size, captures Decker, and is shot down after rampaging in London. Both he and Decker die in the crossfire, and he reverts back to chimp form after death.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 3-While no one would want to have this hulking brute of a primate assassinate them, and he grows kaiju-sized later, his goofy grin throughout kind of sullies Konga's rep.
Trivia: -The producer of this film was going to have known film gorilla portrayer Herman Cohen play Konga, but he had long since retired...
-...and another, George barrows, was picked, but they could only get the costume, which they put onto the final pick, Paul Stockman. Barrows recalls not appreciating the state of his suit when they returned it. Talk about behind-the-scenes monkey business! And that's not getting into the Konga comic book series that randomly spawned from this film!
