"18.8. Blu-ray Romeron ensimmäisellä studioelokuvalla on ongelmansa. Suuri osa näistä kieltämättä korostuu tarpeettomasti, kun katsoo tätä nimenomaan tässä valossa ja uskon etten varmasti ole ainoa, joka on tämän virheen tehnyt. Kulkee tasaisen nautittavasti, joskin vähän persoonattomasti. Tylsää ei tule oikeastaan edes kliseisen romanssin kanssa. Vihan telepaattinen siirtyminen ja ruumiillistuminen pieneen apinaan on todella kiehtova teema. Geenimanipulointia ja eläinkokeiden "

"Animals have feelings, too. So don't experiment on them. And also the road to hell, is paved with good intentions. Monkey see, monkey do."

Moviewatcher122's 2016 Horrorfest (24 movies items)

"October 4 "You killed my Bogey!" "Maryanne, I think you're confused." "Not with his hands. He had his little demon do it for him." This is far from being George A. Romero's best work, but it was still good. The monkey in this movie was really creepy and that's a pretty big accomplishment to make something as innocent as a monkey into something creepy. On a storytelling level this movie is alright, but the problem I had with it was that it really felt slow at times and the time length it has "
