When a Jane Chase, a young zoology student, is invited to assist anthropologist Steven Phillips with his experiments involving chimpanzees, mysterious events occur that all center around Phillip's super intelligent simian servant, Link.
Locke, the orangutan who plays Link, and Jed, the chimp who plays Imp, go in wheel chairs before they start filming to save their energy.
Dr. Steven Phillip:
There are some turds in the hall, clear them up.
Link is an orangutan and they have reddish-brown fur, in the film he is recalled as a chimp and the trainers dyed his fur black.
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.
