The adaptation of this film done by Charlton Comics came out about a year before the film reached theatres. It spawned a series that was easily the most successful of any based on a movie at the time; Konga was not returned from the dead - rather a second ape was introduced and was given a new serum that transformed him into a second Konga.

Real world Venus Fly Traps seize their prey when hairs on the inside of their leaves are touched, and dissolve their prey over a long time. The huge mutated plants, however are shown almost begging for meat treats like animals, and gulp as if swallowing their food. See more »

Even though the story is fairly interesting, I can't help but look at this film as a cheap rip off of the classic King Kong. Michael Gough does a decent job playing the crazed Doctor Decker who wants to eliminate everyone who he feels has wronged him. He also is obsessed with one of his young, voluptuous students. His obsessions lead him to the breaking point and this helps to make this a fairly interesting story. Too bad it is undone by the horrible effects, especially the old "man in the cheap gorilla suit" gimmick. I guess the budget didn't allow for decent effects like stop motion animation. However, despite cheapness of it, this film will always remain a guilty pleasure of mine.
