Editorial Reviews

Part of the "Maneater Film Series," Blood Monkey is a terrifying thriller that follows six American grad students stranded in a jungle and left as prey to a remote tribe of killer chimpanzees. When Dani, Amy, Greg, Sydney, Josh, and Seth arrive in Africa to study apes, they are quickly assured by renowned Professor Hamilton (Oscar winner F. Murray Abraham, Amadeus) that this is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to witness a new species. But what begins as an historic revelation about animal instinct soon becomes an experiment in human nature when the wilds of Africa turn positively vicious. Now available for the first time on DVD, Blood Monkey delivers horrifying screams, gruesome deaths, and suspenseful chases that makes The Blair Witch Project look like, well, just a walk in the woods.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not as bad as I'd hoped. December 30, 2007
Format:DVD
Okay, I admit it. I love bad movies. I mean train-wreck bad. I mean train-wreck-crashing-through-a-kindergarten-class-of-orphans bad. After many years of Mystery Science Theater 3000 fandom, I've simply developed a taste for cinematic ineptitude. It's a real hoot.

But sadly, despite the promisingly silly title, Blood Monkey was a big let down. Was it bad? Well, duh! It's called Blood Monkey, for godsakes! Of course it's bad! What did you expect? But was it fun-bad? Sadly, no. It wasn't a spectacular disaster in the way I was hoping. It was merely lame.

To the filmmakers' credit, things could have been A LOT worse. I've seen MUCH worse from the good folks over on the Sci-Fi Channel. (S.S. Doomtrooper, anyone? Sweet Lord a'mighty, THAT one will leave a mark!)

Clearly this movie was shot for about eleven dollars (ten of which, I'm sure went straight into the pocket of the perpetually slumming Mr. Abraham), but surprisingly the location work is actually pretty good. Unlike most movies of this ilk, this wasn't shot in some abandoned warehouse in Bulgaria. The rainforest locations used here are actually pretty stunning.

The acting, on the other hand ... well, it's about as godawful as you'd expect. Made all the worse because Abraham actually seems to be putting a little effort into it. Not that he's going to win any awards, but his baseline competence makes the amateur-porn-level "performances" of the kids stand out in even starker relief.

And yes, for a movie entitled "Blood Monkey," there's precious little actual monkey in it. Mercifully, we only get about 12 frames of terrible CG gorilla in the closing nanoseconds of the film. Which, in many ways, is smart, I suppose.

1.0 out of 5 stars You know urine trouble when... October 21, 2010
Format:DVD
Before RHI Entertainment decided that the opening scene of every movie had to show the monster in all its badly-rendered CGI glory; before the studio decided that gore shots were the only thing anybody cared about; before the company gave up trying to make interesting movies, there was Blood Monkey.

Mind you, Blood Monkey is not good. But Blood Monkey tries so hard that I can't help but admire its moxie.

Blood Monkey begins with the usual monster attack scene, but it doesn't show the monkey. Which is actually a gorilla. Scratch that, according to Professor Hamilton (F. Murray Abraham, lost in a jungle far away from his Oscar-winning role) it's more like a clan of sasquatches, the missing evolutionary link to humans and apes.

Anyway, Profession Hamilton is mad - quite mad! - and in his egomaniacal grab for fame ropes in a bunch of stereotypical graduate students into the jungles of Thailand. There's the jock (Matt Reeves), the hot chick (Laura Aikman), the nerd (Sebastian Armesto), the perky reporter (Freishia Bomambehran), the final girl (Amy Manson) and the serious guy (Matt Ryan). Hamilton thoughtfully provides a tracking bracelet so that he can keep track of their corpses as the bloodthirsty gorillas kidnap and dismember the grad students. This plan, if you can call it a plan, is doomed from the start.

Ironically, Blood Monkey is at its best when not showing any monkeys. The graduate students' fear is palpable even if they are a collective bunch of idiots there to die for our amusement and the monkey's pleasure. Abraham chews up the scenery more than the gorillas chew on their victims.

3.0 out of 5 stars BLOOD MONKEYS MARKING THEIR PREY October 20, 2009
Format:DVD
BLOOD MONKEY

This film was the first in the on going series of films called the "Maneater" series and while it is far from a classic it is not as bad as some say. In fact when compared to other films that debut on The SyFy channel this is some what good. I have to admit that am I not only a fan of the series but a fan of bad B movies so this series is right up my alley. Will I lie and say this is the best movie ever, no, and in fact it is not even the best in the series. I feel the best thus far from the ones I have seen is "Eye of the Beast" but you will have to read that review to find out about it.

The story is all about a group of young students I believe that are studying in a field related to nature I suppose, why else would they be there. Any way they are brought there by a crazy Professor who may or may not know about the deadly creatures that lay in wake for them. There is the typical male role who is the jock type that thinks he is the man, a chick with a camera to document it all, a "geek" as society would label him and your average bunch of college kids. Add in the crazy professor and is fine but mean assistant and you have the characters in this movie. As they make their way through the jungle and pass obstacle after obstacle in comes the Blood Monkeys or apes or gorillas or what ever.

This movie is far from perfect because other than F. Murray Abraham no one in this film is a fine thespian it would seem. Abraham is really the only one that is actually good in this because the others are either plain bad or just uh, which means forgettable or just there for body count. Well the guy who was making it at the end was ok as was the "geek" guy but that was it.
