Allan is a strong and handsome athlete that becomes paraplegic after a tragic accident. He loses everything as he can't move anything except from his head's muscles. His girlfriend leaves him for the doctor who saved him and this makes him furious. But as a cripple he is now, he can do nothing until his best mate Geoffrey brings him Ella, a monkey trained to fetch and carry for him around the house, obeying him in all things. Geoffrey who works as a biologist researching human intelligence, has an illegal way to experiment on monkeys and he doesn't tell Allan that Ella was a part of his last project. When Ella starts acting strange, Geff carries back Ella to Melanie, an expert monkey trainer in order to make the suffered animal to behave. But Ella has different plans. Romero directs in a different style than zombies and we applause. Another sharp gem from the master of horror from Pittsburgh.
