Yeah actually, there are readings of King Kong that establish the ape as a symbol of primal masculinity. I specifically refer to the ID monster because it's what people refer to usually (Winston makes direct references to the ID monster when talking about Pumpkinhead, for one)

McTiernan flat out says Kong. The a Thomas brothers likened it to the Minotaur and other beasts.

OH???



Where was this said? Starlog, Starburst? This is SUPER important

Spoiler
in PREY, Naru stabs Feral with one of his own fangs - just like Theseus kills the Minotaur using one of the beast's horns. I mention this in the podcast, but had NO IDEA that the Thomas bros likened the original Predator to a Minotaur. This is WICKED!

Commentary on the second film. McTiernan obviously mentions Kong on the commentary of the first.

The One and Only

The 2002 British werewolf flick, DOG SOLDIERS, with a platoon of Brit soldiers on a training mission in the Scottish Highlands. Then fighting for their lives against a pack of ravenous werewolves. Along with influences from ALIENS and THE EVIL DEAD, has a strong PREDATOR vibe throughout.

Speaking of the furry folk. In the Disney animated series GARGOYLES' Season Two episode "Eye of the Beholder". One of show's femme fatales, Fox, receives a wedding gift in the form of near priceless item called the Eye of Odin. Little did she or her fiancee know. It possessed magical properties which during the night, turn her into werewolf like beast. On top of the episode using the City Hunter's roars from PREDATOR 2. There's a chase, fight scene in a meat packing plant, like the flick's third act.

The Cruentus

Don't think that counts as a rip-off though, it might have some inspiration but it is its own movie.
