When he returns from the jungle he brings with him a baby chimpanzee, ‘Konga’. During the course of his experiments, Decker discovers a serum that causes Konga to grow to the size of a gorilla – and, eventually, to obey his will. Encountering both opposition to his experiments and following a love affair thwarted by a rival, he decides to put the supersized ape to terrifying use that terrorises London…
This entertaining film directed by Canadian John Lemont and shot at Merton Park Studios for Anglo-Amalgamated is finally available in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements in its as-exhibited cinema aspect ratio.
