    Oh god...you mentioned The Pest. So many horrible movie memories bubble up when I hear that name.

    SOMEONE on this site has to review that someday. SOMEBODY PLEASE.

    So Her Terribleness is Leaping again? Yikes...

    It's funny that Richard Connell,guy who wrote The Most Dangerous Game worked mostly on really tacky romance novels and movie scripts.

    You gotta wonder why a guy who lives in the castle in the middle of the goddamn jungle has a door with a doorknob. Do the Hovitos drop by every Tuesday for tea and crumpets? BTW,that looks like the set of King Kong because that IS the set of King Kong.

    BTW,cool reference to the Omen 2.

    That definitely is the Skull Island jungle set! "Fog Hollow" is the misty swamp where the search party is chased by the brontosaurus, and I'm fairly sure the shipwreck scene, particularly the part where Rainsford and the captain are in the water and the captain is eaten by a shark, was done in the same water tank as the raft overturning sequence in King Kong. Also if you look during the chase scene, you'll see the dogs run across the log bridge from King Kong.

    Some more King Kong connections:

    1. It was produced by Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack, the inventors of King Kong, as well as David O. Selznick, who executive produced.

    2. It shares more of the same cast than just Fay Wray. Eve's brother Martin is played by Carl Denham himself, Robert Armstrong. Ivan is played by Noble Johnson, who was the native chief in King Kong. Yes, this means it's a black guy in white face as a Russian character. Why they didn't just find a huge white guy, or slightly rewrite the script so Zaroff's right-hand man was a huge black guy, is beyond me. And one of Zaroff's servants is played by Steve Clemento, who was the native witch king in King Kong.

    3. And lastly, a lot of the screams (esp. during the sinking) were the same ones used during King Kong. I'm pretty certain both films had the same sound designer, Murray Spivak, who supposedly used his own voice for the various yells and screams.

    I read the short story this was based off of, and I must say it was quite different, and quite a bit better. The only characters in the story where the man being hunted and the count(possibly a man servant it was awhile ago.) and the ending was a lot more satisfying.

    I remember my mother once telling me of this movie, she also had the book it was based on. This is really fun checking out all these old classic black and white movies. It makes me want to see them in thier original length for myself. :)

    i maintain that ''Predator'' remains the best adaptation of 'The Most Dangerous Game" to date.

    Really does look like a movie that would be a great watch for the right mood or the like.

    Do wish you could have gotten "jewigi" to be absolutely filthy though lol :)

    Either way, still great, hope these keep going.

    Great review. One thing, though; the count's name is Zaroff, not Orlov.
