One of the Best Movie Posters I've Ever Seen For a BAD Movie
31 October 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

"What Would a Woman Do to Survive?" asks the box art caption to Kong Island. A naked woman tries to cover her naughty bits with a deadly boa constrictor while a lustful King Kong attempts to peel the snake away. It's a wonderfully trashy piece of work that has nothing whatsoever to do with this dreadful 1968 exploitation pic. Former The Fury of Hercules actor Brad Harris stars as a mercenary working out of Kenya to stop a mad scientist using transmitters implanted into gorillas to control their primitive minds. There's a sub plot involving a woman named Eva who's been living in the jungle like a female Tarzan although the camera spends more time caressing the muscular Brad Harris who also served as producer.
