5. Ella
What started out as the beginning of a beautiful friendship between quadriplegic Alan and his helper monkey Ella turned sinister in George Romero's Monkey Shines. After bonding over some tunes, Ella and Alan developed a deeper, possibly psychic bond that turned the monkey from a helper into a murderer. The monkey's killing spree included setting a house on fire, electrocuting an old woman in a bathtub and injecting a doctor with his own syringe. Whether Ella was actually evil or just Alan's pawn remains to be seen, but we still feel kind of bad for how she got taken out at the end of the movie.

4. The Monkey in The Monkey
Stephen King can make anything creepy, including cymbal-banging toy monkeys. His tale "The Monkey" first appeared in Gallery magazine and then in the short story collection Skeleton Crew. The story follows a young boy who discovers the toy monkey only to find out that, with every cymbal clap, someone dies. The possessed toy tormented the boy's father who does his best to put a stop to the evil once and for all.


3. King Gorilla
Any number of evil,talking ape characters could have made this list, but King Gorilla from The Venture Bros. tops them all. King, a one time member of the Guild of Calamitous Intent, was kicked out of the gang for killing and then raping Mötley Crüe's Vince Neil on a reality show. The Tarzan-obsessed creature kidnapped the Monarch and intended to give him a fate similar to Neil's, but the Monarch's inherent femininity scared him off.

2. BrainiApe
Nazis and primates seem to go together like land mines and unsuspecting villages. But what happens when you take one of the greatest monsters history has ever known and combine that with one of the strongest creatures on the planet? BrainiApe, a Savage Dragon villain with Hitler's brain on a giant ape body. Making matters worse, this new nefarious concoction can control gravity and peoples' minds. Luckily for the world, Solar Man eventually came along and disintegrated that damn dirty ape.


1. All The Gorillas
Here's how a Planet of the Apes film breaks down: You've got the science-minded chimps trying to further ape existence, the government-oriented orangutans trying to keep order and the warmongering, human-hating gorillas who make up the community's fighting forces.

Almost every dickish thing done by the apes in these movies comes from the gorillas.

They're the ones hunting humans in the beginning of the Planet, they're the ones who try to kill Taylor several times and they're the ones that ultimately lead to the destruction of their city.
