The only thing that excites the hosts of Cinema Fiasco more than a man in a gorilla suit is Michael Gough at his scenery-chewing best and, in "Konga", you get the best of both worlds. Lost in the jungles of Africa (after a hilariously staged plane crash) a mad scientist discovers a special growth serum produced by carnivorous plants. Back in London he gives the potion to a chimp that turns into a giant gorilla and goes on a murderous rampage. There's a sexual jealousy subplot to add to the excitement and the special effects are especially engaging. The sight of a ranting stuntman in gorilla drag, clutching a Barbie doll and stomping around a miniature cityscape is one to be treasured forever.
