"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 "

TDcore's Horror Journal 2018: Pt. 4 (50 movies items)

" This just may be Romero's most underrated film. A well directed, wonderfully acted, startlingly intense flick. It doesn't exactly break new ground, but it's rock solid in all the ways it should be. Jason Beghe is fantastic in the lead role, and the tiny monkey "Ella", is a surprisingly good actress as well. There's some suspenseful moments, a little gore and witty writing to ensure that this one is a crowd pleaser. It's got one hell of an ending too. As far as killer monkey flicks go, this one"

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

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 "
