Films: A*P*E (1976)
Location: Ocean/Jungle/Civilized area
Height/Weight: That of a large building.
Summary: It's King Kong. Except someone swapped some scenes around, shoehorned some 3D into it, and made it, you know, bad. Just get this over with.
History: A giant ape was being carried aloft on an ocean liner near South Korea, but something went wrong, and the ape escaped into the wilderness. Despite enjoying a life of solitude, it would not last, for it kept attacking people and was generally a threat to all of the locals. Something had to be done.
Notable Kills: In the beginning, this ape manages to kill a giant shark. Or more accurately, it thrashes around a dead one the filmmakers had lying around.
Final Fate: After making it to Seoul, the ape climbs...a hill, and is promptly shot down by the military.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 2-The fuzzy ape suit is hard to take seriously. But what really torpedoed his fright was when he flipped us off. No really, we see what you did there.
Trivia: -For those wondering, A*P*E stands for Attacking Primate MonstEr. Really reaching for that one, eh?
-This film was also known as "Super Ape", "King Kong's Great Counterattack", "Hideous Mutant", and "Attack of the Giant Horny Gorilla". All of them are ridiculous to a degree.
