The 1990 horror film Shakma is interesting. It boasts the legendary Roddy McDowall as a Professor Sorenson, running a live action role-playing game in a laboratory building as a social experiment. You also have Shakma, a genetically modified baboon that secures it’s freedom and begins to wreck bloody havoc on the staff and the students locked in the building.
But looking at this poster artwork for the VHS release…the surprised looks of the cast makes it feel more like a TV sitcom!
This trailer is a little gory so be warned but it shows you how different the film is than what the poster seems to be selling. I do love how worked up the announcer gets at the end of the trailer…SHAKMA!
