"They made a monkey out of you"

Films: Primal Rage (1988)

Alias: Various infected

Type: Man-Made

Location: Civilized area

Height/Weight: Infects average humans.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: Oh cool, a killer baboon movie-oh, wait, it's just another psycho killer flick. Pity. But hey, it's all happening in Florida, the literal d*ck of the U.S.A.

History: In an attempt to crack the code of restoring brain cells, a Floridan doctor has been doing some experimentation on some baboons. Unfortunately, a break-in from some rowdy journalist results in one of the baboons escaping, biting a teen. And worse, the experiments made it so that the bite would spread an infection that turns people into unhinged murderers.

Notable Kills: The costume party massacre, particularly the grizzly fitting demise of the tube-nose man.

Final Fate: By the time all is said and done, a couple teens have managed to get all the infected killed. Sadly, this includes the doctor that inadvertently started it all.

Powers/Abilities: Despite a constant berserker state, they retain some intelligence. Also, they spread the infection abroad.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 3.5-As with any crazy guy, try to avoid anyone who seems to be foaming at the mouth to rip you to shreds. But especially try to avoid a slightly calculating one.

Trivia: -This film was also known as "Animal Rage" and "Basic Terror".

-Many elements from this film, including actors and the location and the soundtrack, were recycled for next year's "Nightmare Beach".
