Godzilla vs. Kong: director reveals Jason X reference!

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

So this cool! On a Reddit AMA yesterday, Godzilla vs. Kong director and co-writer Adam Wingard – a noted  horror fan – revealed that the biggest film of the year literally has a reference to the notorious horror flop Jason X! Here's the pertinent quote:

The big reference that I haven't seen anyone pick up on is when Kong folds up and kills Nozuki (aka warbat) that was inspired by the holo deck murder scene in JASON X when Jason picks up the camper in their sleeping bag and smashes them around.

Honestly, that pretty awesome, and the AMA is well worth checking out if you haven't read it yet for some other fun tidbits about the film!

Meanwhile, if you haven't seen it yet, Godzilla vs. Kong – starring Giant Lizard and Big Monke – is currently smashing theaters and HBO Max right now! Check it out if you haven't!

Here's the official synopsis (if the title somehow wasn't enough):

Kong and his protectors undertake a perilous journey to find his true home. Along for the ride is Jia, an orphaned girl who has a unique and powerful bond with the mighty beast. However, they soon find themselves in the path of an enraged Godzilla as he cuts a swath of destruction across the globe. The initial confrontation between the two titans — instigated by unseen forces — is only the beginning of the mystery that lies deep within the core of the planet.
