Ratings Key

= Excellent. The best the genre has to offer.
1/2 = Very Good. Perhaps not "perfect," but undoubtedly a must-see.
★★★ = Good. Accomplishes what it sets out to do and does it well.
★★1/2 = Fair. Clearly flawed and nothing spectacular, but competently made. OK entertainment.
★★ = Mediocre. Either highly uneven or by-the-numbers and uninspired.
1/2 = Bad. Very little to recommend.
= Very Bad. An absolute chore to sit through.
NO STARS! = Abysmal. Unwatchable dreck that isn't even bad-movie amusing.
SBIG = So Bad It's Good. Technically awful movies with massive entertainment value.

In the Shadow of Kilimanjaro (1984)

Directed by:
Raju Patel

In Kenya (where this was filmed) a drought has driven “90,000” baboons to desperate measures, leading them to attack, kill and consume human victims. Supposedly based on true incident that occured there sometime in the early 80s. The baboons are great and the attack scenes sometimes pack a gory punch, but the acting, dialogue, editing and characterization leave a lot to be desired. John Rhys-Davies and Timothy Bottoms star, along with Irene Miracle (Argento's INFERNO), Michele Carey (the daughter of Macdonald) and Calvin Jung.
