This film has been described as a "horror film for people who don't like horror films." That's an apt description for this underrated psychological/supernatural thriller from Pittsburgh's master horror director, George A. Romero. To date, this is Romero's only studio film, and he had to make numerous compromises to the finished product. (The originally intended ending would have been a killer.) That said, the film still comes off as smart and sharp, with some very good casting. (John Pankow, recognizable from "Mad About You," is really excellent here, and there are nice early performances from Stephen Root, Stanley Tucci, and Janine Turner.) And check out the amazingly good editing in the last 10 minutes. Overall, while this is not first-tier Romero, it's a terrific little horror film.

This is not your run-of-the-mill slasher film. This is a well developed, well-paced suspense-type horror. If what you like it lots of blood and cheap scares punctuated by incidental music, then you should skip this film. If you like a horror involving a few good characters, and a really talented monkey, then take a look. The tension builds slowly. There are a lot of interesting characters, who are neither "good guys" nor "bad guys" (this includes the killer). The acting is not all that great, but the script is solid. That the monkey may be the best performer in the b=cast says more about the monkey than the human castmembers!

~Spoiler~ I'll have my deranged monkey kill your stupid bird. That's what. Monkey Shines flies low on the horror radar. It's a Romero film that people normally don't recognize. It's not as beloved as Night of the Living Dead or as socially aware as The Crazies, however, I'm going to give it some much deserved credit. I love this movie. Never have I wanted so many people to die so badly while watching a flick. I mean, these people get what's coming to them. The evil, lazy nurse, the jealous mother, the cheating ex-girlfriend, and the vindictive doctor. Take Kathy Bates from Misery and make her every character. You want to see this monkey go ape-sh*t and kill them. It's great. It's every young boy's dream to have a killer monkey and Monkey Shines really brings that to life. This idea has never quite been attempted this way and it's suspenseful as hell. I'd say it succeeded in doing what it tried to do. My only peve is that it introduces a few characters that clearly deserve to die, but don't (the nurse and Stephen Root). Other than that, it's a thoroughly enjoyable thriller. Monkey Shines, shine on.
