Made Me Nauseous
8 October 2006 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Yeah, this little short made me wanna vomit, it was so horrific! Which is why it was great, since it obviously gave me the effect PJ probably wanted it to give me. I could hardly contain my stomach when the giant black and white spider came out and seemed to break the guy's back, it just made me so sick and horrified! In case you don't know, this film is a rendition of what the cut-out "spider-pit" scene from the original 1933 Kong was like. The scene was cut out from the original due to it being too gruesome, and judging from this little clip, I can fully understand why! The crew also did a great job on this clip, it seemed to come straight from the original movie! I actually thought it was from the original 1933 Kong until someone here on IMDb told me it wasn't. But still, this clip is very great, horrifying, and feels just like it came from the original '33 Kong, and it also seems that the filmmakers took a good amount of time and effort into making this awesome little piece. Their work payed off big-time! I give this a 10 out of 10.
