Monkey Shines: An Experiment In Weird – Rental Reviews

This month’s theme is Ape-ril… all ape movies! …and we’re bananas about it! Tony and James are reviewing Monkey Shines, in our two different Cinemassacre Video locations just to be safe!

In the film, a quadriplegic man has a trained monkey help him with his paralysis, until the little monkey begins to develop feelings, and rage, against its new master. Athlete Allan (Jason Beghe) becomes quadriplegic after a horrific traffic accident. His friend Geoffrey (John Pankow), who is conducting experiments with monkeys, offers Allan a well-trained monkey named Ella to keep him company and raise his spirits. But the initially healthy bond, which even enables Allan to form a romantic relationship with Melanie (Kate McNeil), gradually disintegrates once Ella begins to channel Allan’s underlying rage and takes it out on his loved ones.

It’s “Ape-ril” all April at Cinemassacre Video!!!
