Title: Tor, King of Beasts (1962). Don Glut's amateur version of KING KONG has him playing one of the three members of the Adventurers Club who end up in a jungle full of prehistoric beasts. After battling a Stegosaurus the three then run into Tor, a giant gorilla who they finally capture. They take the creature back to Chicago and sure enough the thing escapes capture and heads off to destroy the city. Obviously this is a homage to KING KONG and as long as you don't take it overly serious you should be mildly entertained. Select any poster below to play the movie! Tootsie.

Riverdale Star Trek: Discovery. was1069 : Season 2 is so much better than Season 1. I can hardly wait till/for the next episode.

Carl Denham (played by Don Glut) and his "Adventurers Club" members attempt to reach Mars, but meteors deflect their spaceship back to Earth. They crashes atop of a plateau covered in prehistoric fauna and flora. Here they encounter Tor, a giant gorilla, who kills one of the club members before the rest escapes to the jungle. Denham and his remaining members track Tor. On their way they encounter a menacing Stegosaurus that Denham kills with gas bombs. This is followed by a huge Apatosaurus that overturns their raft. It hunts one of the members into a tree and crushes him in its jaws. Elsewhere, Tor fights and kills a Tyrannosaurus, followed by an Elasmosaurus and later a Pteranodon. Denham very much wants to capture Tor, and succeeds through the use of gas bombs, that throws Tor from the plateau into a mud pond. Denham with the remain member descend the plateau, and are able to attract the attention of a passing ship. They return with Tor to Chicago; where they exhibited Tor on stage...

Glut's family basement became the studio for this type of movie.

"Tor, King of Beasts" is based on the original "King Kong".

The jungle scenes were filmed at the Conservatory, with Glut surreptitiously moving the "This Way" signs to ensure some privacy.

Glut's stop-motion and the erupting volcano effects showed improvement from earlier films.

TOR, KING OF THE BEASTS is amateur filmmaker Donald F. Glut's home-made version of KING KONG, shot in black and white by Glut and his teenage buddies. The plot follows that of KONG quite closely and begins with jungle adventures before moving into giant monster mayhem at the climax. Running at twenty minutes in length it's a little overlong and wearying at times, but as a fan-made tribute it's difficult to criticise it too much. The film features delightfully cheesy stop motion effects and some earnest overacting from the human stars.

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Don Glut's amateur version of KING KONG has him playing one of the three members of the Adventurers Club who end up in a jungle full of prehistoric beasts. After battling a Stegosaurus the three then run into Tor, a giant gorilla who they finally capture. They take the creature back to Chicago and sure enough the thing escapes capture and heads off to destroy the city. Obviously this is a homage to KING KONG and as long as you don't take it overly serious you should be mildly entertained. Once again the best thing the film has going for it is the imagination of its writer and director. Glut does a pretty good job at copying KING KONG and for the most part he handles the material quite well. Fans of that 1933 RKO classic will no doubt see the various comparisons in the storyline as the director really doesn't try to hide the fact. The stop motion effects are pretty good all things considered and this being a Glut film we naturally get a big battle between Tor and the dinosaurs, which was fun. At just under 20-minutes the film is a tad bit too long and the music score (added years after the film was made) really hurts the film.
