Brings new meaning to the word "weird"!
1 February 2003 | by cfc_canSee all my reviews

Canada has produced many odd movies that have no commercial appeal whatsoever but this has to be one of the strangest, not just among Canadian movies but movies in general. There is no real rooting interest. The storyline is very scant and basically plotless. It involves one night in the lives of 4 people with varying mental problems sharing an apartment together and what happens when an unsuspecting pizza delivery man shows up. (Hey! Maybe this movie inspired that old porno flick chestnut!) Louis Del Grande plays a character teetering on the edge of sanity and explosive violence. It is quite a radical departure from his work on "Seeing Things". The film features some rather explicit nudity and sex, some of which borders on an X rating, at least for this time period. Some scenes involve dream sequences and may well give the viewer the impression that the film makers were high when the scenes were shot. Monkeys in the Attic is a curiosity at best and has little to recommend about it. Most of the cast went on to do far better work in projects of far higher quality which leads one to wonder what attracted them to a project like this as they had some credits to their names. One may also wonder how such an oddity like this was financed in the first place. The end result is like something that one of the 4 mentally challenged people might have dreamt of.
