The Ka-Bar combat knife carried by one of the soldiers had serrations on the back edge. The serrations shown are a copyrighted pattern of the Spyderco company that did not exist before 1981. See more »

I had a free AMC preview of the movie on March 1st, 2017. My husband is not a fan of some of the actors in this film BUT he loves KONG! So, during the movie I felt he was enjoying it. I'm not going to give away anything because I hate when people do that; all I will say is the skull crawlers gave me a nightmare and the entire movie from start to finish was really really good.
The plot was good, the acting was outstanding. I really felt I was in the 70's. The music in the movie was dead on perfect.
Hope you go out and support this movie because I am sick of remakes and this is NOT one of them, This movie stands alone by itself! A MUST SEE...
Stay to the very end...
