this thrilling, incredible monster flick is a total classic in many ways. it is well known, has great stop motion effects, and contains plentiful, never-before-seen action. but this old, awesome horror flick is better fit for older kids. despite its age, King Kong still has some incredibly graphic violence. there is a massive body count, with people eaten, crushed, and dropped from high buildings, all on screen. Kong destroys a train, buildings, and cars. humans shoot at Kong with guns and smoke bombs. Kong fights with a T-Rex and giant lizard. Kong bleeds profusely following these battles and when he is shot off the Empire State Building, blood flows from his wounds. in a lighter scene, a man smokes.
