Films: Shakma (1990)
Location: Haunted home
Height/Weight: That of an average baboon.
Summary: Hasn't it gotten to the point where testing on animals should be outlawed? Besides, depending on what you're testing on it, you might end up with something on your head worse than bad PR. Like a psychotic monkey trying to tear away at your throat.
History: Apparently a guinea pig for aggression experiments, Shakma the Hamadryas baboon was set for death when the experiments kept only making him angrier and angrier. But the idiot assistant, intentionally or not, sedated him instead. As that assistant and his friends indulged themselves in a LARPing experience in the facility, Shakma awoke, and began tearing them to shreds one by one.
Notable Kills: Makes a guy accidentally dunk acid on himself.
Final Fate: Shakma is tricked by a reflection into jumping into a crematory furnace, burning him to a crisp.
Powers/Abilities: Pure anger drives Shakma.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 2.5-Shakma may look like a savage killer at times, but most of the time he just looks like a pissed-off little monkey. Also, seeing a stuffed baboon ravaging a person is a little humorous. Just don't let us see he barred fangs next time.
Trivia: -Shakma was played by a baboon named Typhoon. In order to make him aggressive and bang on doors, they put a female baboon ready to mate on the other side. That, or they had a beta trainer agitate him by whispering his name on the other side. There's some debate as to what actually went down on the set.
-Much like their larger cousins, Hamadryas baboons aren't inherently aggressive towards humans. In fact, this particular baboon was deified by ancient Egyptians, who associated them with A'an, the God of universal balance.
