TRAILER - King Kong vs. Godzilla (1962)
Brace yourself...it's cataclysmic!!! It's catastrophic!!! The titanic terrifying battle between the mightiest monsters of all time!!! King Kong vs. Godzilla!
One of the most famous monster bashes of all time actually started as a possible Willis O'Brien (the special effects wizard who brought us the original King Kong) project where he pitted his famous ape against a giant version of the Frankenstein Monster. Through shady production deals, the idea ended up being purchased by Japan's Toho Co. and Frankenstein was replaced by Godzilla. The end result is a campy giant monster movie that climaxes with one of the liveliest men in monster suit battles ever filmed. The film would play great in a triple feature along with Frankenstein Meets The Wolf Man and Freddy vs. Jason.
