Cult classic KONGA released

KONGA (PG) was one of the very first monster films to be produced in colour and now the cult classic is available for your entertainment at home. This unusual twist on the traditional King Kong story will be available from Network Distributing starting May 13 2013 for the low RRP of just£9.99.

Michael Gough is Dr Decker – a botanist and university professor – but also the sole survivor of a plane crash in Africa. When he returns from the jungle he brings with him a baby chimpanzee, ‘Konga’. During the course of his experiments, Decker discovers a serum that causes Konga to grow to the size of a gorilla – and, eventually, to obey his will. Encountering both opposition to his experiments and following a love affair thwarted by a rival, he decides to put the supersized ape to terrifying use that terrorises London…

This entertaining film directed by Canadian John Lemont and shot at Merton Park Studios for Anglo-Amalgamated is finally available in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements in its as-exhibited cinema aspect ratio.
