Giant Monster Round-up - King Kong Escapes To Chicago And A Retro Monster Promotes Power Line Safety

Written By: Ken Hulsey

I didn't think that either of these two bits would stand very well on their own, so I decided to combine them.

Avery Guerra just shot me an e-mail about a special screening of "King Kong Escapes" at the Portage Theater in Chicago this Saturday. The film will be part of a mini-festival being presented by Time Tunnel Toys that also includes "The Monolith Monsters", "War of the Colossal Beast" and "Van Helsing: The London Assignment."

If memory serves....I think that last one is actually a cartoon.

Anyway, "King Kong Escapes" will be shown at 4:00, but there will be a vintage toy show, and sale, that starts at 2. Admission will be $10 for adults and $5 for the kiddos.

That price is for all the films, not each, in case you were wondering.



I also wanted to mention a cool giant monster related advertisement from Canada that I discovered.

The commercial features a "Godzilla-like" retro monster, that gets too close to the power lines and meets his maker. As you guessed, it's about power line safety.

The bit was produced for Alberta's Joint Utility Safety Team by Calgary's Wonder Communications.

It seems that you need to keep your heavy construction equipment at least 7 meters away from the power lines......eh!
