Above are two Japanese posters for the Hong Kong lost world flick Xing xing wang, aka Goliathon, aka The Mighty Peking Man. We watched it last week, and mainly what was peeking was Swiss actress Evelyne Kraft’s ladyparts out of her costume. Those are the highlights. The lowlights are innumerable, and include choppy editing, bad miniature work, unconvincing rear projection trickery, and a dubious moral to the whole exercise. But because the film is so unusually bad it may be worth a look. It certainly made us laugh out loud more than once. But if you don’t want to spend ninety minutes finding out what happens, the frame captures below tell all you need to know in only ten seconds. Anyway, at least the posters are good. Xing xing wang opened in Hong Kong today in 1978.
