    An Experiment in Fear: The Making of Monkey Shines

    ★★★½

    Entertaining forty-seven minute documentary that takes a look at the production of George A. Romero's MONKEY SHINES.

    The documentary is certainly going to please fans of the film as it goes into great detail about both the pre-production as well as the production.

    Something Good - Negro Kiss

    ★★★★

    When the Library of Congress released their list of twenty-five films to be included in the National Film Registry there were many familiar titles and then there was this thirty-second film from 1898. If you're familiar with movies from this era or if you're familiar with the race movies that would gain popularity during the 1920s then you'll realize that this here is something special.

    The film has a black man and woman kissing, doing a dance and just smiling…
