Daily Grindhouse Podcast
Released on Mar 20, 2017

With KONG: SKULL ISLAND hitting theaters this past weekend, Jon Abrams, Freeman Williams, and Mike Vanderbilt decide to look back at APESPLOITATION in the '70s when a slew of filmmakers attempted to cash in on Dino De Laurentiis' 1976 KING KONG remake starring Jeff Bridges and Jessica Lange.

The Grindhouse squad discuss the Korean cheapie A*P*E, The Shaw Brothers MIGHTY PEKING MAN, and KING KUNG FU.

In addition to monkey movies, the guys discuss ASSASSINATION CLASSROOM, DANGEROUS MEN, HAP & LEONARD, and Ken Russell's THE DEVILS which made its way to Shudder's streaming service this past week.
