Directed by George A. Romero | 1988

With Jason Beghe, John Pankow, Stanley Tucci, Kate McNeil

Romero’s first studio film charts the increasingly disturbing symbiotic relationship between a paralyzed man and his helper monkey, a genetically engineered chimp who begins internalizing and acting out his master’s darkest impulses. Hailed by Jonathan Rosenbaum as one of the director’s “most effective and interesting horror thrillers,” Monkey Shines is a provocative exploration of the eternal tension between the id and the ego.
