Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Monkey Shines (sometimes called Monkey Shines: An Experiment in Fear) is an American horror film originally released in 1988. Written and directed by George A. Romero (Night of the Living Dead, Creepshow), the film is based on a novel by the same title authored by Michael Stewart. Monkey Shines tells the story of an athlete, Alan Mann (Jason Beghe), who is rendered quadriplegic when struck by a truck. Mann fails to adjust to his condition, becoming suicidal and despondent. When Jeff, a scientist friend of his (John Pankow), who has been experimenting with the injection of human brain tissue into monkeys, learns this, he is prompted to supply one of the experimental monkeys, named "Ella" (played by Boo, whose vocal effects are provided by Frank Welker), to Alan as a helper.
