"Shakma is one of the ultimate video cheapies but it's actually a good video cheapie. A medical professor (Roddy McDowell) and a group of med students are playing a Dungeons & Dragons-like role playing game inside their school on a weekend where they are the only ones inside & locked in to boot. Over the course of a night they are attacked & killed, one by one, by a test baboon (Shakma) that was supposed to have been put to sleep earlier in the day but was given the wrong drug which increased his aggresive tendencies tenfold. Shakma, now homicidal, rips apart his victims in a grisly and realistic fashion. The movie is helped largely by the fact that they used a real baboon in most of the movie. Very effective. Also stars Christopher Atkins, Amanda Wyss (A Nightmare on Elm Street), & Ari Meyers (Kate & Allie)."
