Review: Monkey Shines (Blu-ray)

22 November 2014 11:15 AM, PST

Oh my, how the mighty had fallen! I had vague memories of Monkey Shines when I watched it over twenty years ago and, after revisiting this, it all makes sense why this film doesn’t spring to mind when I think of Romero’s great early body of work. George A.

21 November 2014 10:09 AM, PST

Though it’s packed with unnerving moments from start to finish, viewers of The Shining may remember the ghost of Delbert Grady telling Jack Torrance that he must “correct” his wife and child as a particularly creepy scene, and next year fans of the film can see Delbert’s suggestion mixed with dancing and humor onstage in a musical theater parody of Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 horror classic.

Set to hit the stage sometime next fall, the musical parody made an onstage sneak peek performance on Wednesday night.
