Saturday Matinee: The Monkey’s Paw

In my secret identity, I’m a mild-mannered high school English teacher. One of the lessons that I always do involves a reading of the classic horror story, “The Monkey’s Paw,” by W.W. Jacobs. It’s a great, tension-filled tale and most of my students really enjoy it. The short film version that I’m posting today takes some liberties with the material (mostly to condense it into the running time but part of the ending is slightly altered, as well) but it’s still a great version and is a little more visceral with the ending, which students really enjoy.

Hope you like it!
