Friday Night Frights Presents SHAKMA

Dynasty Typewriter
2511 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, California 90057
$10 Advanced / $15 Day Of Show*

Monty Cox, owner of Typhoon the baboon (who played Shakma) will be in person for Q&A.

"Released in 1990, SHAKMA seems a fitting climax to the cocaine-fueled madness that was 1980s genre cinema. Deeply tanned BLUE LAGOON star Christopher Atkins and his friends hang out after-hours in their med school building playing (what else?) a fantasy RPG, and proceed to have their throats ripped out by a psychotic lab test baboon hunting them down ALIEN-style. Any major studio would find a way to simulate a primate rampage, but this indie fatality-fest uses the real deal. As one of the characters in the movie says, “Try not to brown your shorts!”
