Product Description

Netherlands released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), Dutch ( Subtitles ), ANAMORPHIC WIDESCREEN (1.66:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Anamorphic Widescreen, Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: Richard Franklin directed this horror film that plays like Jane Goodall in Gaslight. Elisabeth Shue is Jane Chase, a graduate student in zoology who volunteers to help Dr. Steven Phillip (Terence Stamp), a professor at the university, with his animal studies. Arriving at his mansion, she is greeted by Link, a orangutan dressed in a monkey suit. Jane gets to know Link and Dr. Phillip's other chimp charges, Imp and Voodoo. One day Dr. Phillip goes to town, supposedly to sell Voodoo, but instead, Voodoo is found dead at the mansion. Link then proceeds to ignore Jane's commands and starts pushing Imp around. When Dr. Phillip's friend Bailey (Kevin Lloyd) arrives to take Voodoo away, Link becomes aggressive and chases Bailey away from the mansion. Jane later realizes Link is holding her prisoner in the mansion, not allowing her through the door and keeping the telephone away from her. Link is now out for blood, and the blood belongs to Jane. ...Link

By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 15 Dec. 2007
Format: DVD
"There's just a few rules that you have to remember: 1. You're the dominant species. You must never, ever treat them as equals. 2. Don't ever let anything escalate. Always forgive them, whatever they do. 3. Don't get involved in their squabbles. They sort them out. And 4. Erm, some turds in the hall. Can you clear them up?"

Whenever anyone comes up with that kind of list in a movie you can start ticking off the order in which they'll be forgotten and place your bets on who dies first, and Richard Franklin's Link is no exception to the rule. It's not a particularly ambitious film - it can pretty much be summed as a girl stalked in a remote country house by an unbalanced killer, with the spin being that this time the killer is an ape - but it's a pleasingly well-crafted and executed one. Unusually for director Richard Franklin the influence here seems to be less Hitchcock than Argento, with plenty of bravura camerawork - complicated tracking shots, long lenses, multiple speeds and step-printed scenes that are far more effective than they have any right to be. Naturally the apes outshine the humans (Elisabeth Shue and a fairly brief but entertaining turn from Terence Stamp), with Locke the Orangutan giving a surprisingly layered turn as Link himself, the unstable former circus hack and "Master of Fire."

Barely remembered today, it's one of those films that just got lost in the cracks: a key and very expensive part of Verity Lambert's catastrophic production slate (The Holcroft Covenant, Wild Geese II, Morons From Outer Space, Bloodbath at the House of Death, Slayground etc) that led to EMI films being sold lock, stock and barrel to Cannon, who promptly dumped it with a token release. The film rarely even turns up on TV these days.

Link, a British horror film starring Terence Stamp, Elisabeth Shue, two chimps and an orangutan. The Link of the title is the orangutan, though we are asked to believe he is a chimp, and he's getting on a bit and his master, Dr. Steven Phillip (Stamp), is ready to send him of to the primate farm in the sky. Only Link is a smart cookie, he likes a smoke, and he likes to menace Jane Chase (Shue) who is working for peanuts as Steven's housekeeper so as to get experience from the good doctor.

So, when Steven vanishes half way through the movie, Jane is left to her own devices with mad primate and good primate. But wait, a clumsy set-up sees her joined by some pals late in the day, the cannon fodder has arrived, hooray! Ludicrous and lacking genuine suspense, while the primates out act their human counterparts. But boy are those primates trained brilliantly, especially the expressive Link (Locke). 3/10

I loved this movie, it had a sort of TV movie feel to it, some of the acting by the young chappie in the house was awful and a bit OTT, but i think it added to the experience. It's one of those movies that i would watch again very soon.

The fantastic animal attack genre of the 70's, so commonly thought by many to have been flip-started by 'Jaws', was actually blazed by 'Frogs' as long ago as 1972, yet it all truly began with the double-hitter of Alfred Hitchcock's 'The Birds' and the barely known 'Black Zoo', both from 1963. What 'Jaws' did was make them fashionable; a decent handful of various threatening species followed swiftly, most good, but the first Jaws sequel and 'The Pack' topped the crop. By the 1980's, a whole new bunch of horror threats went into the stratosphere, brilliant for the Jack and Jill of all tastes, but animal horror kind of dropped; there was the rather choppy and hard to stomach 'Wild Beasts' of 1984 from Italy (with an equally horrific attitude to the wild animal cast), and now, finally thanks to Cannon Films, the far better 'Link' is made available via Network, which has been putting out some past great TV shows, most noticeably 'Birds Of A Feather'. For the UK, 'Link' has been given a brand new transfer from the original print, and it looks pretty good, though the disc comes with no extras bar a stills gallery and its two trailers, the awful theatrical exposing way too much of the film.

Elisabeth Shue, in a movie that remains her best, is Jane (clever ode to British primate expert Jane Goodall); she's charming, idealistic and increasingly resourceful as an American student who takes a summer job with her tutor Terence Stamp, a rather stuffy know-all who believes he's the holy grail of knowledge of interacting with incarcerated apes.

Watched this film ones very long time ago on the sci-fi chance. Loved it back then. So thought I'd buy it and give it a blast. Was thinking it's probably really dated and cheesy like most film's you revisit from your childhood. But boy was I wrong. Loved it even more than ever. Gripped from start to finish. And the monkey is brilliant in it .😆🖒

Another film i remember watching many years ago,and really enjoying.this is one of those rare films that has stood the test of time and really aged well .The only problem with this film is that it's quite difficult to get hold of,but it's really worth the effort.The nearest thing to monkey heaven would be to pair this with the other great ape film "monkey shines" and put it out as a double disc,called "monkey business",
