In case you were wondering, and I rather suspect you weren’t, I’m going to put you out of your misery and let you know that yes, the reality TV show My Monkey Baby does, in fact, exist.
* This is what happens when you innocently channel-hop on Foxtel. One you have seen it, you can’t unsee it. Believe me.
I’m not even going to write about the content of this show. It’s pretty much self-explanatory. If there is an antidote to this show and let’s face it, there probably isn’t, then it is this movie:
Monkey Shines: A horror movie with monkeys. Not disimilar to the TV show above.
Basically man is left paraplegic and is given genetically enhanced helper monkey to, well, help him. Monkey is psycho and starts killing everyone man loves whilst displaying stalker-like devotion to owner.
Don’t ask me how when or why I saw this movie. I believe it had something to do with the whim of the chap I reside with and the snazzy screeching monkey horrible film cover art combined with the massively improbable plot and 70s outfits.
However, watch just 10 seconds of My Monkey Baby and you can imagine that scenario playing out. In fact, you end up wishing it to.
