"Our patience is the only thing going ape now"

Films: A*P*E (1976)

Alias: None

Type: Natural

Location: Ocean/Jungle/Civilized area

Height/Weight: That of a large building.

Affiliation: Neutral

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.

Powers/Abilities: None

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.

Even the tagline prepares you for how shameless this endeavor is.

The following cow-tipping excursion is going to go horribly wrong.
You're not even trying now!

Quit playing with corpses, you brainless bufoon!

Well, this was worth the price of admission.
