King Kong’s CZ In-Joke

Posted by: Loren Coleman on December 14th, 2005

Went to see Peter Jackson’s incredible film King Kong. I’m not going to spoil it for anyone but there’s an inside humorous reference to a cryptozoological creature before King Kong is actually encountered by most of his pursuers.

Someone had repeated to me that this cryptid was a recent beast (thus out of place in King Kong), as it turns out incorrectly. I was happy to see that King Kong quite correctly mentions a contemporary (1930s) cryptid.

See if you can pick it out.

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    That was a great quote, and it was ironic who said it too…

    Just got back from seeing the movie, and I did spot the cryptozoological reference. I and the audience laughed appreciably at that joke too.
