Storyline

Locked in a cell for 48 hours three emotional archetypes battle for psychological supremacy before they can be destroyed by their own weaknesses. Subjects of a perverse scientific experiment they are left unobserved with no rules, no boundaries and no chance of help. Captured on video the result is a three-way Darwinian fight for survival in a Draconian prison hell. The resulting film was sent anonymously to the Metropolitan Police. Copies were also allegedly sent to major distributors and sales agents within the film business. Monk3ys is a dark satire on the deep psychosis that lays deep in us all and the industry that exploits it for entertainment. Written by Anonymous

Shock N Bake for Monk3ys
21 May 2016 | by mr-thousandSee all my reviews

Mix one overbearing recovering alcoholic jerk, an active alcoholic, a repressed time-bomb twerp, mix in several bottles of whiskey & savor the delicious madness. Three incompetent, unbalanced psychologists select three combustible character types, under the pretense of a serious social experiment, to spend two unobserved days in a small room, while cameras record the proceedings. Needless to say, things go predictably bad before going terribly, terribly wrong. Appearing to be an unscripted, found footage film, "Monk3ys" is so brilliantly scripted & acted & edited, that it succeeds as one of the most convincing films of it's type. Although I found it under horror, it's really a thriller, but unlike any mainstream thriller ever made or likely to get made. Imagine raw footage for a super low budget reality show, like a poverty row "Big Brother," gone violently out of control. I found it compelling throughout, & for my patience, a nice payoff at the end. It is unquestionably independent & low budget & I would not recommend it to anyone who doesn't appreciate anything but mainstream or commercial independent thriller/horror films. Up for something different? Sample the "Monk3ys."
