Monkey Shines was a 1988 film that was directed by George A. Romero. The film was adapted from a novel of the same name. Athlete Alan Mann (Jason Beghe) has a terrible car accident that leaves him a quadriplegic. Alan doesn't adjust very well to his new life and becomes suicidal and very distant from his family and friends. One of his friends, Jeff (John Pankow), is a scientist and has been doing research on monkeys and injecting human brain tissue into monkeys in order to give them human qualities. When Jeff hears of how depressed Alan has become, he sends one of his monkeys named Ella (voiced by Frank Welker) to help him out. Ella can speak just like any human, and she forms a relationship with Alan. They become friends and share many deep conversations. The pair's unlikely friendship turns evil when Ella becomes telepathic and voices what Alan is thinking at all times. His thoughts aren't always nice either.moreless
