A genetically-mutated baboon goes bananas in this sickening slice of animal horror. Professor Sorenson (PLANET OF THE APES' Roddy McDowall) is the head of a university med school who injects Shakma, a genetically mutated baboon with a drug meant to reduce its rage. Unfortunately it does the opposite, and later, while Sorenson's students are playing a live-action role playing game in the building, the ape goes bananas and starts killing people. Soon, the students have to play a new game called "Run away from Shakma." You won't soon forget this murderous monkey.

All Shakma wanted was food.. whoever doesn't enjoy this doesn't understand movies :p.
Roddy McDowall and an absolutely horrifying baboon, enough for me.
The ape was good, yet the plot turned rapidly to a very long "why are they all so stupid?" exercise. I wanted to like the movie better, but couldn't.
