The Gorilla (2002) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
The newspaper headline says a murdering maniac gorilla is terrorizing the suburbs. Is the killer a man or a beast? Westchester is terror-stricken! A hairy arm delivers a note to a woman in bed. She runs off screaming. The note contains a threat to Walter Stevens! Somebody wants Stevens to repay a huge sum of money. Eleanor Danby arrives in a Packard on a dark and stormy night. Stevens explains the terms of the will: the survivor gets it all. Stevens hired some private detectives to guard him (the Ritz brothers, so this film will have comedy). [There is no rain on their coats.] Jack’s car won’t start, so it can’t be put away. “Make a note of that, Garrity!” Who keeps a gorilla in a cage? The radio plays a warning. Who is walking upstairs?
The phone is dead, the lights go out, and Stevens disappeared. They find a strange man in a closet. They reenact the crime, twice. The three detectives disappear. A stranger enters from outside, who is he? “It wasn’t my fault.” The detectives search the house, this provides comic events. Will they find something in the cellar? Eleanor screams upstairs. “An unfortunate coincidence.” Another stranger shows up, he is an animal trainer who was hired to bring his gorilla to the house. More confusion follows. [It is not funny.] There is a detective from the SEC. They find secret passages in the house. The detective surprises the people, and is surprised in turn. The mystery is finally solved.
This movie is neither mysterious or comical.
