After Jake Tilton (C.J.Thomason, Transformers) 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.
Why We Love It
"Daytime scenes with plenty of sunshine are the strongest with bright, crisp whites and accurate brightness levels. Fine object and textural details are very well-defined with revealing facial complexions, especially close-ups."-High Def Digest
"Takes the story I heard as a kid to a new place. Outstanding acting from S. Lang who is so well cast in his role. Absolutely recommended, especially with it being on price. You can’t go wrong."-Amazon
"If there’s a strength to be commended, it’s the use of New Orleans as a backdrop for this haunting tale. The locations used already provide an ethereal, otherworldly quality all on their own. Bathed in hues of blue and looking ominous, the swamps and backwoods of Louisiana are the perfect setting for anything supernatural. "-Dread Central
