Some movies are so bad that they become surreal masterpieces. Case in point: King Kong Lives, with its excess of rear projection and bad effects do to lack of money. There is nothing in this movie that could be considered "good," yet I have to admit being completely mesmerized by it. Do yourself a favor and watch the heart transplant sequence that starts at the 13 minute mark.
