Mighty Peking Man

Series: Grindhouse Film Festival

The Grindhouse Film Festival presents a rare 35mm print of this Shaw Brothers kaiju movie!

Stories of a "ten stories tall" monster ape living in the Himalayas reaches fortune hunters in Hong Kong. They travel to India to capture it, but wild animals and quicksand dissuade all but Johnny, an adventurer with a broken heart. He finds the monster and discovers it's been raising a woman, Samantha, since she survived a plane crash years before that killed her parents. In the idyllic jungle, Johnny and Samantha fall in love, until Johnny asks her to convince the giant ape to go to civilization. Once there, "Mighty Peking Man" is put in chains, and it won't take long for his instincts to take over, and mayhem to erupt in Hong Kong!
