YMMV: Gorillas in the Mist
  • Adaptation Displacement: Many know about this film, little know that the gist of the story came from an article by Harold T. P. Hayes.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The brutal murder of Dian's favorite gorilla, Digit. And if seeing him killed wasn't enough, we are "treated" to a shot of his headless, handless corpse.
  • Tear Jerker: A solid candidate for the most heartbreaking film of 1988 that doesn't involve Sakuma Fruit Drops. Given that Dian was being played by the always-phenomenally-talented Sigourney Weaver, well... prepare for your heart to be crushed in epic fashion.
