Monkey Shines


Allan Mann (Jason Beghe) is a bitter, angry and vengeful man ever since an accident left him paralyzed from the neck down. He's fed up with himself and everyone around him. All that changes when he's given Ella, a monkey trained to meet his every need. But when Ella begins anticipating Allan's thoughts, strange and deadly things start happening. And as she stalks and wreaks havoc on Allan's fair-weather girlfriend (Janine Turner), incompetent doctor and meddling mother, Allan realizes he must stop the cunning maniacal creature...before she fully takes over his mind!

The Dark Half


Based on the best-selling book by Stephen King, The Dark Half tells the story of horror writer Thad Beaumont (Timothy Hutton), who hopes to distance himself from his murder novels and from George Stark, the name he has used to anonymously author them. To achieve this, he cooks up a murder of his own: a publicity stunt that should lay Stark to rest forever. But when the people around him are found gruesomely slain - and his own fingerprints dot the crime scenes - Beaumont is dumbfounded until he learns that Stark has taken on life of his own...and begun a gruesome quest for vengeance! The Dark Half stars Timothy Hutton (Ordinary People), Amy Madigan (Field of Dreams), Michael Rooker (Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer) and Julie Harris (The Haunting).
