Editorial Reviews

After Jake Tilton (C.J.Thomason, Sutures) acquires a mystical monkey's paw talisman that grants its possessor three wishes, he finds his world turned upside-down after his first two wishes result in his malevolent coworker, Tony Cobb (Stephen Lang, Avatar), being resurrected from the dead. When Cobb pressures Jake into using the final wish to reunite Cobb with his son, his intimidation quickly escalates into relentless murder: forcing Jake to outwit his psychotic friend and save his remaining loved ones. Also starring Corbin Bleu (High School Musical, Nurse 3D), Charles S. Dutton (Legion), Michelle Pierce (NCIS) and Daniel Hugh Kelley (Cujo), The Monkey’s Paw is adapted from the renowned short story by W.W. Jacobs, and picks up where the short story left off.

Customer Reviews

Plenty of good story line and fine acting.
Ronald B. Bodnar
As a result, the audience fails to empathize with these characters, and any degree of vicarious horror related to the characters is completely non-existent.
HorrorMan
This movie is really stupid and predictable and stupid.

This movie tried to be different and surprise you with the reveal of how one of the characters got the paw, but it really became somewhat predictable. This movie is about a monkey's paw that is nothing more than an ugly genie's lamp. You get three wishes. It is safe to say the screenplay writer intended the lead character to be a moron since he just couldn't come up with any decent wishes. [SPOILER] These stories always boil down to one dilemma: what to do with the final wish since the other two have messed everything up. Here it is not difficult to swallow what happens to the lead characters since you hate them all--or at least don't care for them--by the time you are half way through the movie. If there is nothing else to watch, it is doable, but don't expect to be thrilled.

The Monkey's Paw film, based on the classic short story by W.W. Jacobs, is a taut thriller/horror featuring strong performances, suspense and shocks. A modern-day updating of the original literary tale, the movie succeeds in getting viewers fully invested in its cast of characters while throwing these characters into extreme circumstances. Stephen Lang (Avatar) and Michelle Pierce (NCIS) are stand-outs, while C.J. Thomason (Harper's Island), Daniel Hugh Kelly (Hardcastle & McCormick) and Charles Dutton (Roc) add very strong performance. Corbin Bleu (High School Musical, Dancing with the Stars) gives a surprising performance as a tough-talking Cajun. Lang was my favorite -- his absolutely unhinged performance really jumps off the screen. Thematically, the movie warns the viewer to "be careful what you wish for" in this twist on the original classic three wishes tale. The movie was shot in New Orleans and makes great use of the setting, sights and flavors of that unique southern city. Highly recommended!

I liked the pacing and the suspense buildup. A lot of horror movies don't put much effort into a back story but this one took the time to give reason for characters' anguish. Horror and creepiness tinged with sadness is a good combo especially for a setting like New Orleans. The cast choices worked, and I think all of the currently less-known actors are going places, they were great.

Based on the classic horror story and cautionary tale based on the short story by W.W. Jacobs, The Monkey's Paw tests the waters of mixing distorted wish-granting with "be careful what you wish for" notions. In this iteration Jake (C. J. Thomason; Husk, Sutures) comes into possession of the ill-fated magical talisman at a local watering hole from his embittered ex-boss who seems a little too glad (in almost a vindictive way) to be rid of the fate-twisting trinket.

It's a little silly, but not necessarily unrealistically approached with the wish-making. The first (rather skeptically made) wish was for a car: "I wish for that bitchin' GT outside." The second saves the life of Jake's rough-around-the-edges co-worker Tony (Stephen Lang; Conan the Barbarian, Avatar, Salem). And if Pet Sematary (1989) has taught us anything, it's that people who are magically saved from death tend to continue life as a homicidal husk of what they once were. In this case, that husk of a man also really wants the last wish from the Monkey's Paw.

The weakest point of this movie is that it relies on a homicidal pseudo-zombie for its kills instead of several uniquely distorted and gorily treated wishes. It makes the story about Tony, as if he were a motivated killer instead of one of many victims of a Monkey's Paw. This fails; we don't care, Tony isn't interesting, and we're looking for more creative death scenes.

At one point Jake goes to see a fortune teller. That, of course, is melodramatically treated and to no satisfaction of us viewers. Jake tries to rationally explain his situation to people…that NEVER goes well in these movies either. Then we get the explanation of how the paw works from the former owner.

I can remember when I was just horror-boy and not Horror-Man, and when I was just a school boy, our teacher played a tape recorded version of the original "The Monkey's Paw" by W.W. Jacobs. I remember being just fascinated with the story literally on the edge of the seat of my school desk as we listened with the lights off. It was a good scary story, and I have forgotten that day that we listened to it. Over the years, I have often looked for a movie version of the famous short story, but have never found one. Well, one day I ran across "The Monkey's Paw" at Wal-mart, and I passed on it the first time, the second time and then the third time, as I so often do, I gave into my curiosity and decided to purchase the movie and hope to find a horror gem inside the plastic cover.

The movie, "The Monkey's Paw", attempts to pick up right where the original story left off as the audience is introduced to the characters of the movie which takes place in New Orleans. Well, it did not take long for me to see that the characters were undynamic, insipid and stupid. When that is the case, the movie is pretty much doomed, and this DVD version of "The Monkey's Paw" is no exception to that rule.

"The Monkey's Paw" is about a man who causes his older supervisor to be fired. The old supervisor is actually the child who inherits the monkey's paw from his father who was able to wish away his dead son at the last second for those who are familiar with the original story. At any rate, the old supervisor decided that the younger fellow needs some bad luck in his life, so he gives him the monkey's paw. The younger fellow (reason I don't his name because the characters were so boring) wishes for a car, and so he finds the car he likes outside a bar with the keys in it, and he steals the car.
