FREE MOVIE! Nyoka the Jungle Girl Rides Again! Black & White Serial Version.

June 28, 2012 · 11 comments


Nyoka Rides Again was filmed in two days on a budget as close to zero as you can get… fueled by passion, elbow grease and the contribution of many volunteers. We set out to make the best backyard, do-it-yourself serial cliffhanger that we could manage driven by our love and respect for the genre. The new adventures of Nyoka began in 2009 and continues to this day thanks to the support of our amazing fanbase.

Nyoka Rides Again is the SECOND film in our series, beginning with 2009′s The Return of Nyoka the Jungle Girl and continuing in 2011′s Nyoka the Jungle Girl Fights Back.
All three films are available on this website for instant download and are also available now on DVD. All three were filmed in full color.

Statuesque beauty Nicola Rae returns as daring jungle heroine Nyoka Gordon as she once again battles the maniacal Crimson Skull for possession of the mystical Amulet of Vultura! When our heroine disrupts the villain’s scheme to control the gorilla Satan, the Crimson Skull conspires to use the Amulet to resurrect Queen Vultura herself (the classic villainess from the original 1940′s serial). The Skull requires a new host body for Vultura’s evil spirit and he sets out to capture and use Nyoka Gordon for this nefarious purpose, but our intrepid adventuress isn’t going to make it easy for him. An epic jungle chase ensues as heroine and villain exchange ambushes, punches, kicks and gunfire… all building to our big finale featuring Nyoka versus the Crimson Skull on horseback racing through the jungle!

Serial fans are gonna LOVE IT! And if you’re new to the cliffhanger genre… you’ll love it too!!! Nyoka the Jungle Girl Rides Again is fast, exciting, sexy and fun… it’s everything you love about comic book and serial adventures brought to life by micro-budget film mavericks Bill Black and JohnJG!   Starring Nicola Rae as Nyoka Gordon, Pierce Knightley as the Crimson Skull, Chris Casteel as Satan the Gorilla, Autumn Sage as Rulah and Stem Whitaker as Hunt Reardon.

Man, What a fun flik !
The horse chase is classic in the serials , and Nyoka and Climson Skrull do it justice here.
We had a blast filming this one, even though my fellow cast and crew seemed to think it was cold or something.
Enjoy folks !
Have some popcorn for old Bongo (Satan)

Running gag with the Ol’ SKULL is that his gun is smaller than anybody else’s. That gun like all the other guns we use has moving parts, loadable ammo clip and really fires (pellets, not bullets). I resist using real guns in guerilla filmmaking because you can get into lots of trouble. That cross bow gun we used in NYOKA 1 was the real thing and was very powerful. We didn’t really shoot Satan with it of course. Pierce and I filmed the firing of the crossbow while everybody else took a break so we weren’t near anyone. He aimed at at tree 20 feet away, fired, and the bolt went an inch into the tree. Damn! It would go clear thru a person’s arm. We shoot 150 – 200 camera set ups in a single day so there’s no time to worry about real guns.

Pierce and I actually improvised some lines where I constantly make fun of him for having such a “tiny package” It was all left on the cutting room floor sadly :( still a great time was had by all. Would love to revisit that character again. If I could avoid getting punched in the face for once.

Well Bill, You’ve done it again. I was that little kid again sitting in the darkened theater watching Nyoka ride through the jungle looking for the bad guys. The effect with the pendulum was incredible. It was totally realistic. You, your effects team, and actors are top notch. Chris as Satan, the gorilla, is so classic. Being an old gorilla man I sure know how hot that work is and he has it nailed. A BIG two KONG thumbs up to you folks.


Your BIG fan,

Old Bob

WOW! Kudos from the MAN himself! THANKS, Bob! Coming from you those comments are extra special since 1. After Forry you are world’s No. 1 fantasy film collector and old movie expert and 2. YOU are a TRUE HOLLYWOOD GORILLA-MAN! For the uninformed Bob Burns played Tracy the gorilla on the 1970′s GHOSTBUSTERS TV show (and in a hundred other shows). He managed to up-stage both Forrest Tucker and Larry Storch for laughs in every episode. And, Call Me Bwana, that’s really saying something. Bob is a true old cliffhanger serial fan having in his amazing collection, many of the original Republic Pictures serial hero costumes. My gawd, Bob was buddies with ROY BARCROFT and KENNE DUNCAN!!!! For Bob to tip his propeller beanie in favor of our NYOKA makes all our hard work worth the effort. Pardon me while I blush! Thank JohnJG for all those wonderful effects. Did anyone catch the temple in the background during the Nyoka – hooded Rulah chase? It blends in with the trees so well that it is completely natural. And wait til you see the cliff scene in NYOKA FIGHTS BACK! Hey, Tarzan, Nyoka has her own escarpment!

Hey, Al, like Stem sez, those tiny package scenes did not make final cut. But they should be included in future gag reel. Nicola was trained in stage combat and gladly takes on anything Nyoka needs to do… and looks beautiful while doing it! She is the perfect action heroine.

How cool is that, to hear from my big gorilla brother Bob !
Bob has been a huge influence on my career as a gorilla man, in fact, Bob was the inspiration that started it all.
I had always loved gorilla movies, and had a huge fondness for all the classic gorilla guys.
But in 1972 ( I think) Ghost Busters the saturday morning live action show took it to a whole new level.
Bob’s portrayal of Tracy the gorilla, was the thing that made me realize that I had to do that!
I’ve built several gorilla suits over the years, but Bongo is my best, and Bob gave me tons of info, photos, and encouragement in the building of Bongo.
Bob is more than a friend, he’s like my big brother, and more than that, he’s my hero.
To do something that makes your hero proud is the greatest feeling in the world, and I feel like the luckiest guy in the world to be able to call my greatest hero, my friend.

Love the famous Republic music and gun shots used. They had THE best composers of serial music around in the Olden Days.

Saturday mornings was my day to visit a local theater and watch western movies and always a Republic serial (Cliffhanger).

Thanks Bruce! We’ll get around to building a foam temple set or a cave one of these days. It’s on the “dream list”. :)

Possibly my favorite Cult Retro movie! Need a FaceBook link for this one!
