Good killer primate film!
27 February 2003 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Shakma is a good film and the Baboon is very mean. He maybe cute and neat looking but I know I wouldn't want him anywhere near Me.Roddy McDowall was very good and Christopher Atkins was good. If you like horror films about killer primates like Link or Monkey Shines then Shakma is one to watch!
