Trivia

Many of the scenes that involved Shakma angrily attacking a door were achieved by putting a female baboon that was in heat on the other side of the door. This is evident if you happen to spot a particular part of Shakma's anatomy during these scenes. See more »

Goofs

A lab sheet's name box for the titular baboon reads "Shockma" instead of "Shakma". See more »

I like this movie...
16 January 2000 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

The idea of this flick is original:wild baboon called Shakma attacks group of the youngsters in huge scientific institute.Many people will die until the surprising end.Nice cast,a lot of suspense and plenty of blood.The natural aggression of the Hamadryas baboon enabled probably the most realistic attack scenes ever filmed.This is truly one of the best horror movies of the 90's.Creators of this somewhat forgotten chiller made also average slasher flick "Night Brings Charlie".All in all,if you are a real horror buff check it out.
