The Mighty Peking Man (1977) a.k.a. Goliathon

For the love of all things horror, there is NOTHING in this film that works for me.  I’m serious about this.  From the periodic use of inserted stock footage, to the massive problems of scale from scene to scene, to the luxuriously decorated cave in the middle of the jungle, to the guy in the ape suit, to the sizzling hot love story in the middle of the film, to the girl wearing a loin cloth bikini in an urban setting, EVERYTHING is simply god-awful.

No, it’s not "so-bad-it’s-good."  It’s simply bad.  Peking Man is an obvious rip-off of the King Kong story with the look and feel of a Godzilla flick.  I don’t care if IMDB gave it a 5.4 average.  This is pure cinematic trash and is definitely not worth your time.  You’ve been warned!
