Hello Supercult West! This is Supercult South Bad Movie Professor Cameron Coker (BS in “Totally not a King Kong Rip-Off” with a minor in “Seriously, it’s a totally original, Shaw Brother’s classic, not a King Kong Rip-Off”) and I’m reaching out to you from across the country to help hype tonight’s screening of The Mighty Peking Man!
Well, you asked for it Supercult and we found it. As promised here’s female Tarzan meets Himalayan King Kong reimagined by the Chinese and with no dinosaurs!!!
Wait, you didn’t ask for that? What do you mean, ‘Why would anyone ask for that’?! Well, look, we found it anyway, okay, so you’re just gunna sit there, and watch it, and you’re gunna god-damn LIKE IT!
And to be honest, there’s a lot to like here. Released in 1977 to capitalize on the 1976 remake of King Kong, and re-released in the US in 1980 with the title Goliathon, the Mighty Peking Man may not be as critically acclaimed as the film it was trying to imitate, but it’s still one of the best Hong Kong monster films ever made.
Oozing with camp and animal-skin bikini goodness, The Mighty Peking Man is everything a die-hard Supercultists could ask for…even if you APARENTLY didn’t ask for it in the first place. Gah! Just, roll the movie or whatever, I don’t even care anymore ya drama queens!
