Forgettable Romero outing with Beghe as a paraplegic who befriends a monkey assigned to serve as a helper and friend. But when brain experiments his buddy are conducting on the creature create a psychic link between master and monkey, things start going seriously wrong. Everyone Beghe is angry at is killed by the ape.
The film is O.K., but it's so slow and tepid, it feels like a TV movie. Unfortunately, Romero has always insisted on writing his own films. He's a great director, but not a great writer. His two best films were co-written or written by others: "Night of the Living Dead" (co-written with novelist John Russo) and "Creepshow" (written entirely by Stephen King).
This film may be enjoyed by fans of the director's work, but everyone else should steer clear.
