NotesA man becomes a quadriplegic when hit by van while jogging. Parallel to his rehabilitation a 'scientist' is experimenting with training monkeys. The man is given a monkey to help him with everyday tasks. But this being a George Romero film (c.f.. Zombies: Dawn of the Dead) the everyday tale of a quadriplegic turns into a tale of horror. This is quite a good film which is spoilt by the horror. And the human carer of the disabled person is given a hard time for no good reason.
