You think that is funny? Well, I think chairs are funny and I am going to beat the guano out of you. . . Ken_Begg Am I the only one who thinks he looks more like a were-gorilla? bgbear_rnh Can’t say, all you monkeys look alike to me. Gamera977 Yeah, I was thinking he has more of a ‘Planet of the Apes’ vibe there than ‘The Wolfman’ to me. bgbear_rnh True, his hair is not perfect. Rock Baker This looks like Collins is trapped in the Time Tunnel, and I second the PLANET OF THE APES vibe here too. Flangepart Ah-Rooooo! And, yeah, too monkey man for a dog man. Eric Hinkle He kinda does. Dumb question time: am I wrong or was there not at least one B&W horror movie about a were-gorilla? Rodford Smith Could you be thinking of the Raymond Burr movie _Bride of the Gorilla_? Eric Hinkle If it involves a guy turning into a gorilla, then yeah. Rock Baker You could probably also count THE APE MAN and it’s sequel, and in sorta the same vein the Captive Wild Woman series. Although not exactly supposed to be an ape-man, the young lad who had a gorilla heart transplanted into his chest in NIGHT OF THE BLOODY APES did go through spells of being an ape-like monster (visually, he’s probably the closest to being a were-gorilla, since Burr transformed completely into a gorilla). BRIDE OF THE GORILLA is probably the best of this genre, which is weirdly under-explored if you think about it. I’m sure too that there were a couple of other examples I can’t recall. I mean, you’d think so, right? Maybe an Italian film or something? Eric Hinkle Wow, I didn’t know there were THAT many were-gorilla/’ape-into-man’ movies. Ken_Begg Yes, it was a pretty popular trope. Rock Baker Really, though, you’d think there’d be a lot more than there already is, wouldn’t you?
