A pretty fun, cool little flick that combines LARPing and a bloodthirsty lab baboon.
Some med students (and their professor) play an after-hours live action role playing game in the medical building where they practice/study (hey, why not?) This is also the facility that houses all the monkeys they do testing on, including Shakma, their most recent testee. Whatever they did to ol’ Shakma has made him (her?) super aggressive and looking to tear some faces off. Shaks gets loose and hunts our clueless students down one by one.
The film loses some points for not using Peter Gabriel’s “Shock the Monkey” in any way. Shakma the Monkey, “Shock the Monkey”? C’mon people!
