KING KONG WAS RELEASED IN 1933 TO A FASCINATED AMERICAN AUDIENCE.

"AAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!"

BUT THIS ISN'T 1933....AND IT'S NOT HOLLYWOOD.

IT'S TEMPLE, TEXAS.

AND THIS GUY IS ANDREW BAGROWSKI.

FOR NEARLY 20 YEARS ANDREW HAS BEEN DECORATING HIS FRONT YARD FOR HALLOWEEN.

"HERE'S THE MAIN CHARACTERS OF THE FILM..."

HIS WIFE MARGIE EGGED HIM ON TO DO ONE IN THEIR HOME STATE OF MARYLAND. SHE REMEMBERS THE FIRST ONE.

"HE HAD ALL THESE DEAD BODIES LYING AROUND. AND YOU WOULD GO THROUGH COBBWEBS AND IT WAS JUST SCARY STUFF."

WHEN THEY MOVED TO TEXAS. HE BROUGHT THE TRADITION HERE WITH THEM.

"HE'S ALWAYS BEEN INTO CREATING THINGS BUT IT JUST GOT BIGGER AND BIGGER."

WHY DOES HE DO IT?

"IT'S JUST PART OF ME. IT'S LIKE THOSE GUYS- 'WHY DID YOU CLIMB MT. EVEREST? I DON'T KNOW, IT'S THERE."

YOU MAY BE WANDERING, 'HOW MUCH DOES THIS ALL COST?' I MEAN, IT'S A PRETTY EXTRAVAGANT SETUP HE HAS IN HIS FRONT YARD. BUT THE TRUTH IS 100 PERCENT OF THE MATERIAL USED, EVEN THIS PROP, WAS EITHER DONATED OR SET TO BE THROWN AWAY.

"GOT A REALLY GOOD DEAL ON A BUSTED UP MANNEQUIN. THIS IS A KIDS' TUBE THEY SWIM WITH. WOOD MY NEIGHBOR FOUND ON THE SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY."

THIS LOCAL FAMILY CAME BY TO CHECK IT OUT.

"THIS IS GREAT. HE'S VERY TALENTED"

THEY JUST KEEP COMING. I STOP AND TALK TO THEM. THEY COME 2, 3 , 4 CARLOADS AT A TIME. ALL WALKING AROUND AND GETTING THEIR PICTURES TAKEN. I LOVE IT."

"THIS IS WHAT I DO. IT'S IN ME. I CAN BUILD IT. I CAN DO SOMETHING THE PEOPLE LOVE. IT'S JUST PART OF ME. "
