The showman who brought Kong to New York returns to Skull Island and finds Kong’s son, a spunky 12-footer with a winning personality and his dad’s awesome strength.
“Son of Kong” is a black-and-white monster film released in 1933, which serves as a sequel to the original “King Kong” movie. It was produced by RKO Pictures and directed by Ernest B. Schoedsack and released in the same year as its predecessor.
The movie follows the adventures of Carl Denham, the filmmaker who brought King Kong to New York, as he returns to Skull Island in search of treasure. There he discovers that Kong had a son, who is much smaller than his father but is still able to help Denham and his crew when they encounter trouble on the island.
The film received mixed reviews upon its release and was not as successful as the original “King Kong” movie. However, it is still considered a classic monster movie and has gained a cult following over the years.
