Editorial Reviews

Kelly feels her life is unraveling. Her mother’s death has left her as the guardian of her autistic 12-year-old brother, Tom, and she’s just learned her stepfather pilfered her college fund to buy a tiger for his safari park. To make matters worse, a hurricane is cutting a swath of destruction toward her home. But Kelly has something greater to fear than the hurricane’s 120-mile-per-hour winds – the savage tiger has somehow slipped inside her house. Now, trapped inside their boarded-up home, Kelly and Tom must fight for their lives against a deadly man-eater who smells their fear…and wants their flesh.

5.0 out of 5 stars Briana Evigan gets eye to eye with a tiger... October 15, 2011
Format:DVD
With a strong, intelligent, and likeable heroine played by Briana Evigan, Burning Bright (2010) is an enjoyable and exciting thriller, that could even be suitable as family entertainment. While the setup leading to a Bengal tiger becoming loose in a house during a hurricane is a little iffy, the film is generally quite well-written and delivers where it counts the most.

After the death of her mother, Kelly Taylor (Evigan) is trying to look out for the future of her autistic brother Tom (Charlie Tahan), and also complete her college education. Unfortunately her stepfather Johnny Gaveneau (Garret Dillahunt) has other ideas, using the money intended for Tom's care to buy a killer circus tiger. The wild beast is intended to be the main attraction in a "Safari Ranch", that Gaveneau intends to build at his residence.

Unable to enroll her brother in a special school, Kelly and Tom return home, just as a hurricane is closing in, and turn in for the night. The following morning, Kelly discovers that the tiger which had been in a cage outside the house, is now wandering loose inside. She also finds that with the doors and windows are boarded up for the hurricane, she is trapped inside as a rainstorm rages outside.

Thankfully, the writers make Kelly intelligent and level-headed, instead of the typical hysterical airhead often found in these types of affairs. It's like a breath of fresh air to see someone try to deal with a situation in a rational manner, without a lot of phony dramatics, and talking to themselves. Kelly is always thinking, analyzing the situation, and taking decisive action.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maybe you didnt think Tigers were scary... November 26, 2010
By Justice
Format:DVD
I know it sounds silly, that a film about a tiger trapped in a house with two kids, might be enjoyable. Sure, the tiger isnt a supernatural killer, or a crazy Anthony Hopkins in a tiger suit, and no the plot isnt going to get noticed at the Oscars.

With that being said, I LOVE a movie that reminds us that nature is deadly. If you enjoyed the film "Black Water" based on the true life events of three people trapped in the mangroves as a territorial crocodile devours them, then you will probably enjoy this film.

If you are a fan of Alfred Hitchcocks, "The Birds" where, something as mundane as seagulls come to take your life, then you will probably like this film.

AND! If you ever saw "The Ghost and the Darkness" which I highly recommend (based on a true story) about serial killing, man eating lions that collect the bodies of their victims inside a cave... then you will like man killing tigers.

What I love about the effects, is that they used real tigers. No CGI, no puppet tigers, and of course the three tigers used to make this were not hurt in the production. (The DVD has a nice feature on how they made the film)

This is not for die hard gore fans, or people who need to get inside the mind of a serial killing/raping mad man. But this film IS for someone who wants a suspenseful plot, that they can actually go to bed and sleep afterwards without feeling dirty or in need of therapy.

In conclusion, I loved this movie! Maybe more so because the film makers didnt try to introduce me to a new breed of killing machines. It simply reminds us, if you forgot, that there are plenty of overlooked beasts on this planet that can rip your face off.

As a side note the musician Meatloaf makes a small appearence. :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Briana Evigan is hot August 29, 2010
Format:DVD
Kelly (Briana Evigan) attempts to unload her autistic brother at a special care facility so she can go off to college with the money left to her by her recently deceased mother who committed suicide. The plan fails when the check bounces. She finds out that her step-dad had removed all the money to buy a hungry Bengal tiger for his soon to be safari land (yes, the tiger had been starved). Kelly confronts her step-dad to no avail. At one point the only thing left for her to do is to scream into a pillow.

The house becomes boarded up due to a hurricane coming their direction. With the arrival of the hurricane, all communication is lost. The hungry tiger has been left loose in the house (a real Scooby-doo mystery as to who done it) while the step-dad is at the only bar in town open during the hurricane which has electricity (must have its own generator.)

Kelly sees the tiger before it sees her, but can't locate her brother Tom, a potential tasty little tiger snack. The rest of the movie is a series of tense scenes where they run, hide, and fight off the tiger. During the movie Kelly struggles with her feelings for her brother, who she loves, yet is a burden. Briana running around, showing lots of leg has a young male appeal. Acting was good, music background was acceptable, camera angles were also good to create "terror".

4.0 out of 5 stars Burning Bright does just that! September 24, 2011
By Jeff W.
Format:DVD
If you can swallow the ridiculous setup you'll be well rewarded. The majority of the film is Kelly tiptoeing around the house in silence in an attempt to find a way out while being stalked by a ferocious tiger. Long stretches of silence/tension are punctuated by terrifying tiger attacks. All 11 feet and 600+ pounds of him. A scene in a laundry chute is one of the tensest sequences I've seen in years. Adding to the pressure is Kelly's autistic brother, who I'd throw to the tiger in order to escape (yes, he's that annoying) because he is unable to appreciate the feline danger and often disobeys Kelly when she hides him in a room or closet and instructs him to remain quiet. Adding a raging hurricane was a necessary plot convenience but it's ultimately brilliant! Even if Kelly is able to find a way out she'll be confronted with the life-threatening storm.

It would be a tremendous disservice to sum this film up as "a woman is stalked by a tiger", which while factually accurate does not capture the nail-biting tension the set-up affords. The tiger is very real and director Carlos Brooks does an excellent job showcasing just how scary it would be to encounter one of these orange monsters in real life. Loved this predicament!
