In this APE-isode Jason and Rich continue their horror movie theme for October and discuss a lesser known film from genre maestro George A. Romero. He is mostly known as the creator of the modern zombie movie with Night of the Living Dead (1968). That film and some its sequels are considered horror classics but his other films seem to fall through the cracks of time. One such film is Monkey Shines about a quadriplegic man and his helper monkey who starts to wreak havoc as the animal develops dangerous thoughts and emotions. Does Monkey Shines deserve to be re-APE-raised as a horror ‘monkey-piece’ or is this just another Reel Big Mistake?
