A white-knuckle thrill ride directed by horror maestro George A. Romero (Dawn of The Dead, Creepshow), MONKEY SHINES features a top-notch cast including Jason Beige, Kate McNeill, John Pankow, Joyce Van Patten, Stephen Root, Stanley Tucci and Janine Turner as well as cutting edge 80s practical effects from Tom Savini, Greg Nicotero and Everett Burrell.

When college athlete Alan Mann is left wheelchair bound after a tragic accident, his world contracts into one of soul crushing depression and impotent rage. Abandoned by his girlfriend and left in the hands of an unsympathetic nurse who cares more about her pet parrot than her patient, Alan’s wretched life is changed for the better when he is gifted a capuchin monkey named Ella. Ella is trained to help Alan with day-to-day tasks, in essence replacing his paralysed limbs. But when Ella starts feeding off Alan’s darker impulses and revenge-filled dreams, things start to become deadly for those around him.
