SynopsisPart of the "Maneater Film Series," Blood Monkey is a terrifying thriller that follows six American grad students stranded in a jungle and left as prey to a remote tribe of killer chimpanzees. When Dani, Amy, Greg, Sydney, Josh, and Seth arrive in Africa to study apes, they are quickly assured by renowned Professor Hamilton (Oscar winner F.

But what begins as an historic revelation about animal instinct soon becomes an experiment in human nature when the wilds of Africa turn positively vicious. Now available for the first time on DVD, Blood Monkey delivers horrifying screams, gruesome deaths, and suspenseful chases that makes The Blair Witch Project look like, well, just a walk in the woods.
