An experimental drug that is supposed to reduce aggression has the opposite effect on a baboon that is being experimented on by a group of medical students and their professor.

The title Shakma comes from alternate spelling of the word Chacma, which is a name of a baboon species - the Chacma baboon (Papio ursinus), also known as the Cape baboon. See more »
The baboon appearing in the movie is not a chacma but hamadryas - a different species. The chacma baboon (Papio ursinus) is the largest species of baboon, whilst the hamadryas (Papio hamadryas) is significantly smaller and easily recognizable by a mane around his face - the only baboon species to have such feature.

Turn off your mind and get ready for some ape-tastic surprises
You are currently reading about an excellent (see: totally ridiculous) Saturday morning monster movie starring Amanda "Tina from A Nightmare on Elm St." Wyss and Christopher "Blue Lagoon" Atkins (among others). Sounds like a terrible movie, so why do you love it mickeyshamrock? Well, aside from the typical "so bad it's good" moments, and my raging hard on for Amanda Wyss, the baboon footage is insane. I've never seen anything like it. Shakma (aka Typhoon) literally goes ape sh*t every take. Every time the baboon is on camera it elevates this movie beyond it's B-movie shackles. Definitely to be watched in one sitting, breaking it up will only expose some of it's faults. Turn off your mind and get ready for some ape-tastic surprises.
