Three wishes on a monkey's paw lead to terror and tragedy for a young man, his family, and his zombie friend
23 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Monkey's Paw.

Find a paw and ya get some wishes, three wishes to be exact. As the wise and the witless say, be careful what you wish for. This is the tired story of cliché love lost 20 something guy, his blonde make-up crusted bimbo of an ex who has moved on to guy's boss, old drunk and bitter father figure who wants his family back... enter a monkey's paw. Three wishes to make your dreams come true, what could go wrong?

Guy looses his friends and family to father figure turned zombie killer, blonde takes stab wound to chest (her best feature), drunk and bitter gets drunk and dead and young and innocent spawn of drunk and bitter gets the next rack of wishes from the monkey's paw.

If this sounds like a bad horror movie to you, you are not imagining it. The story was terrible, the script was scrap, and the acting was atrocious, and the blood had the look and consistency of Hershey's chocolate syrup. It would take the gang of mystery science theater to polish this gem to an appreciable point, but even that may be stretching it. Bad is bad and bad it was and frankly to expect more would be to expect too much.
