King Kong 1933 – How it was made BS

December 7, 2018

Many moons ago, when I was a mere child ;) , I recall a magazine (was it ‘Famous Monsters;?) where they re-printed the behind the scenes special effects for the 1933 King Kong.

They used drawn illustrations to explain the effects, and the information was ‘not correct’ or ‘not accurate’ in describing the special effects. Perhaps just marketing-publicity endorsed by RKO studio? I found these images online from the magazine but unfortunately, not very good quality and difficult to read

Here are the magazine page images. You can click to enlarge, then attempt to zoom in to try and read & see the details ….

‘Fiend Without a Face’ (1958) | Old indie sci-fi horror B-movie

December 5, 2018

Through out the years, I have never actually watched the entire movie yet, but have only seen just brief clips, specifically, very quick scenes of the stop motion special effects. ‘Fiend Without a Face’ was made in the UK – England.

Here is the background history of the film ….
‘Fiend Without a Face’ (1958)

For the Stop Motion aficionados, the video below is what appears to be, most of stop motion scenes from the movie, all condensed-compiled together. Remember, this was low, low budget B-movie of many years ago. Some Stop Motion details … quote — “The director of these effects sequences was Florenz Von Nordoff, while the actual stop-motion was done in Munich by Nordhoff’s partner, German special effects artist K. L. Ruppel. Peter Neilson headed up the British practical effects crew.”

DARK EARTH | updates – Dinosaur meets Creature Vegetation

December 5, 2018

Just a teaser sample. Finally … a dinosaur, an Ornisaurus makes a Dark Earth appearance and encounters an otherworldly living carnivorous gigantic plant species.

It is INSANE how Peter Montgomery is able to produce HIGH quality production work with very minimal budget. It can be a struggle but I would hope, that perhaps later, some financial assistance might happen or come along … however … Peter continues to persevere, in spite of the obstacles.

Peter has a RIGAR Productions facebook page for awhile, but he does not do much updates, yet. At your option, perhaps give Peter’s RIGAR page some LIKES … here …
