What the "spider-pit" sequence from the original King Kong (1933) probably looked like (the original sequence was cut out of the original movie because it was deemed "too gruesome" and was subsequently lost).

Storyline

The Valley is about four prospectors who walk into a valley and unwittingly enter a rift in the time/space continuum. As they journey down the valley, one of the prospectors (Ian Middleton) gets taken away by a harpy. Another prospector (Peter Jackson) falls off a cliff. The two remaining (Ken Hammon and Andrew Neal) have to fight and destroy a cyclops. They build a raft, float across a lake, and see a building in ruins. This ruin, unbeknownst to them, is the Beehive building of Wellington city - they haven't travelled back in time but ahead into a post-apocalyptic world taken over by mythical beasts.

Pretty Neat...
31 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw a little of this on the documentary The Sci-Fi Boys, and from what was shown was pretty entertaining. What Jackson did for stop-motion creatures was impressive, and his editing of mixing live-action with the stop-motion made for a nice big smile on my face.

The story is mainly about a cyclops and the misadventures of a boy, that takes place in the valley to which the monster lives.

If this is ever released on a DVD with one of Jackson's other features, it's well worth the time to watch.

To see the clip shown in The Sci-Fi Boys, it usually airs once and a while on the Sci-Fi Channel or can be purchased online.
