DARK DISCUSSIONS gets into MONKEY SHINES
Dark Discussions gets into some Monkey Shines (according to our listeners, this particular episode is hilarious). This Romero film from 1988 really surprised me personally–I actually thought it was going to be good! Silly me.
One thing that’s really interesting is the original poster, which features a well-known cymbal-clapping monkey toy, has absolutely nothing to do with the film. Personally, I wonder if it was because of the success of Stephen King’s popular short story collection Skeleton Crew, which featured the same toy and had been released three years earlier.
If you need to refresh your memory on Monkey Shines, here’s the trailer: https://youtu.be/HD8TBmk6lIM
