Guns, girls, grappling, gorillas, slightly gray looking greenery! This film has it all!

King of Kong Island is the action-packed tale of a scantily-clad jungle girl, some people who speak English without seeming to understand it and sometimes without bothering to move their lips, a mad scientist friend of theirs they’ve lost touch with a bit and their very many cigarettes. It seems almost impossible for these many disparate elements to fuse together into one coherent and gripping narrative, doesn’t it? Well, that didn’t stop the makers of this bizarre Italian adventure story giving it a go anyhow.

Hey, it was the 60s, a lot of people were experimenting. In this case they were experimenting with planting radio spares in apes’ brains so they could be controlled remotely. Everyone needs a hobby, don’t they?

Our square-jawed and trapezoid-chested hero, Burt, is drawn into a world of intrigue, stock footage of wildlife, terrifying disco-dancing and advanced brain surgery in this extraordinary film that everyone claims features a relative of King Kong. With the help of your intrepid riffers, Matthew J Elliott and Ian Potter, you will be able to join those happy few who have made it through to the end to find out if that’s actually true. You may not be quite as happy as them when you get there, but you’ll laugh a lot along the way and you’ll never make it through Kong Island without us.

Wherever it turns out that is…

Any issues with the RiffTrax main page should be directed to support@rifftrax.com Attempts to engage with me directly about such matters will result in ridicule.

Oh man, I just realized that I actually watch and review RiffTrax entries as part of what I consider "work" now. I wish I could do this forever!

Long story short, great entry but can get a bit TOO British sometimes. A-. :)

This was terrific.  I had to listen to it more than once to understand everything that was said, but that's a GOOD thing.

I'm probably breaking Hugh Rees Music's heart by saying this, but Harry's elder brother and I have just recorded a new RiffTrax Presents, which should hopefully be available quite soon.

How long is "quite soon," in UK time?  I quite enjoyed King of Kong Island.  Being a Monty Python fan since I was a nipper, you're accent is no impediment for me!  I look forward to your next riff!  I can't remember which of you,  that riffed horror express, but that was also a good one.  Brits make fine riffers...the Japanese make them smaller and cheaper. (R.I.P. Benny Hill).

That's up to the good people at RiffTrax. The live shows and ComiCon must take precedence, obviously, but I hope it'll be shortly after that. Yes, I was the guy who did Horror Express, which boasted a cameo appearance by the great Bill Corbett - one reviewer thought it was me informing him of Bonesaw's readiness and took to Facebook to tell me how disgusted he was with me.

Well, that actually was pretty fast!   Downloading now, and looking forward to a good riffing!  Thanks!

One more comment.  I loved the Tom and Jerry crew references.  I had to reach into childhood memories to get the jokes, but it was great when I understood the jokes.

FYI.  In the first 5 minutes of this film, Mr. MJ Elliott explains why he's a Rifftrax Presents  regular!  (See Scared to Death thread).
