"8.10. (PC) Todella hellyyttävä pikkuapina saa eläinkoeruiskeilla telepaattisen yhteyden avustamaansa pyörätuolipotilaaseen ja alottaa murhasarjan. Ihmisiä ei liiemmin käy sääliksi, sen sijaan elokuvan surullisin kohtaus nähdään lopussa, kun halaamaan tulleen häntäystävän niskat purraan nurin. Vihan lähettiläs sisältää myös seksiä neliraajahalvaantuneen miehen ja hyvinvoivan naisen välillä - voisiko tässä puhua jonkinlaisesta oidipuskompleksista, kun äitiään vihaava"

My Favorite Bad Movies (15 movies items)

" George Romero's Monkeys Shines: An Experiment in Fear never had a chance to be good. A movie about a murderous helper monkey is not something people would buy in to. No matter how good the writer, director or actors are. Even if that murder monkey is super intelligent and feeds off its owner's anger. The weirdest thing about Monkey Shines is the first half wants to be an emotional drama about a man's struggle to accept his paraplegia and how his life changes when he gets this helper monkey. "

" Featured List Thanks for all the recent votes on my Eco-Terror Films list. Reminded me that this might be worth a re-watch. OMG, I had forgotten how much I loved this film. What might seem tacky or outdated... is just hysterical. I found it difficult to not burst out laughing several times. But seriously, psychotic killing monkey... where can I get one!"
