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. While they are playing a fantasy role-playing game in their research facility, the baboon escapes and begins hunting them down. Written by
The baboon appearing in the movie is not a Shakma but Hamadryas - different species. Shakma baboon (Papio ursinus) is the largest species of baboon, Hamadryas (Papio hamadryas) is significantly smaller and easy recognizable by a mane around his face - the only baboon species to have such feature.

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.
