All Critics (2)

A low-budget thriller with a made-for-television look that's developed a surprising cult following.

Audience Reviews for Shakma

½

This movie did for role playing gamers what "Jaws" did for swimmers. A very simple idea that is executed very well. The Baboon alone is reason to watch it. Why hasn't this movie been released on Blu-Ray? Anyone?

Bad, stupid and tedious

Fun to watch fer-sure, original plot and you can see they tried to give it a bit of suspense, but with its exectution it doesn't really stand up in the long run. Ironically, this probably deserves a remake
