To me, this film feels very mysterious in many ways. But that's what made this film fun to watch.

A young girl in uni is a scientist and she moves over to an old, run down house with a Doctor called Dr. Phillip. He is studying the races of the Chimpanzees. He lives with two of them called Imp & Voodoo and he has a butler Orangatanga named Link. One morning though he goes missing and Voodoo is dead. The girl (which I forgot her name) then tries to locate the professor/doctor and then there is a sense of anger in Link.

The plot takes on very well from what I have said. I watched this film at the start of the year, wondering what I would get out of it. I chose to watch this film for two reasons. 1. There where Monkeys and I think monkeys are great in any sorts of films what so ever, and 2. I just like horror. So with these combinations this is why I watched it.

I love the suspense that this film gives off once the doctor has gone missing. When this occurs your mind starts to have any vision about what could have happened to him.

Besides the fantastic plot, I think that chimps did a job well done, it must have taken hours for them to be trained! I also like all the music from the great music composer, Jerry Goldsmith. He was able to blend in the music really well.

Even if the deaths aren't as what you expect (Bloody, gory, which none of us like anyway), you will get a shocking kick out of this film.

I believe that this film deserves an 8.3/10, not a 5.6/10.

Critic Reviews

Idris Elba Could Be Your Bartender ...

If he wasn't acting, that is. The "Turn Up Charlie" star relates to his character and shares the strangest jobs he's had. Plus, hear what it's like playing a villain in Hobbs & Shaw.
