What the "spider-pit" sequence from the original King Kong (1933) probably looked like (the original sequence was cut out of the original movie because it was deemed "too gruesome" and was subsequently lost).

The scene that you didn't know about from the original Kong.
30 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the original Kong, there was originally a scene where the crew members would be fighting off some spiders in a large pit they fell from the trunk that Kong was tilting around.

According to the filmmaker's resource, this scene was not included from the original release of Kong, due to it's violent content. The footage of this scene was never revived or seen again.

During the production of Jackson's King Kong, he and his crew decide to reenact this scene by following the original draft script that describes the scene, and use the same technology they used for the original Kong including Stop-Motion creatures and Black and White camera.

After research and reconstructing the forgotten sequences, the results of this scene are superb. It may not be exact scene that was filmed over 70 years ago. But I'll give Mr. Jackson an A for effort in giving us a great visual on this deleted scene.

To this day, the whereabouts of the original footage are unknown. We may never know as it's a long lost piece of cinema history.
