When a female zoology student is invited to a remote seaside mansion to assist a primatology professor with his experiments involving chimpanzees, dangerous events start to occur, all involving the intelligent 45-year-old chimp, Link.
Student Jane jobs as an assistant for the animal researcher Phillip in a lonesome old house. They live alone except for the chimpanzees and butler Link: a 45 years old very intelligent orangutan. Phillip wants to put Link to death. However before he can do this he's vanished tracelessly one morning. Link starts behaving more and more aggressive and prohibits Jane from using the phone or reaching the next village. When she punishes him by locking him out, he becomes violent.Written by

The film was made in the UK for EMI Films. "The English setting to me was essential," said Richard Franklin. "I wanted to contrast the primitivism of jungle animals with Old World values, high culture, and "civilisation" - which is one of the subjects of the picture." See more »
When Link was getting Voodoo out of the cage there was a lock on the cage, but Link toke it off when it needed a key. See more »
There is another edition of the movie. On the French DVD and VHS, the film is longer and gives to the movie a much more psychological effect. If the first scene in the US cut is missing (the Imp's escape) all the parts with Terence Stamp are much longer and makes the movie much more coherent. Unfortunately, the only language provided on the French DVD is French. See more »
I loved the film Link. It's one of my favorite suspense films. I love it because of it's twists and turns. Plus because of it's great and amazing music score by Jerry Goldsmith. I also like Chimpanzees. I recommend it because it's one of my all time favorite suspense/horror films plus I own it and have seen it hundreds of times. I give it 2 thumbs up for acting and surprises along the way.
