When a mysterious murder rampage begins, it's up to an ex-FBI profiler (and now small town sheriff) to keep the populace safe. Dean Cain, however, as that cop has no easy job of it with libidinous teenagers and hillbilly poachers to contend with in his spare time. 2009's "Maneater" finally arrives on DVD (have you been waiting patiently?) and provides rather undistinguished B-movie monster mayhem. Native American lore once again takes the blame for the killing spree--as the culprit seems neither human or animal. Might it be the mythological Wendigo, a cannibalistic creature that possesses man, who is responsible for the modern day carnage? As there are plenty of Native American actors in the cast to relate stories of yore, you can be assured it's a safe bet. But can the creature be stopped? Can Cain come to terms with his tumultuous past? And just who is going to get topless next? These are just a few of the burning questions that will be answered in this watchable, but completely unremarkable, horror epic.

There's not much more to relay about the plot. Cain, a wreck over the disappearance of his wife, holds tight reign over his teenage daughter. Their relationship seems sweet enough until the plot demands her to be rebellious--kicking it with the new boy and hanging out with loose girls who like to expose their chests. The first thirty minutes of the film plays almost like a teen slasher film what with all that nubile frolicking. The picture reaches the height of ridiculous hilarity when one of the young girls is taken by the beast (from her second story bedroom window). The seven remaining teens head out into the isolated woods to camp out overnight. A brilliant plan, to be sure, made even more delightful by what actually happens!

3.0 out of 5 stars I had hoped for better July 23, 2011
By Einsatz
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Well, the jacket cover on the DVD was exciting. As for the movie itself....routine.
Dean Cain plays a former FBI profiler with issues: he has a missing wife. He's now a sheriff in a backwoods town where people suddenly go missing. In a town that small, you'd think they'd notice when anyone goes missing but several slip their notice anyway. The main suspect is a monster with suspicious DNA. Late in the game, the sheriff worries that he might be the monster on the loose....or just a guy with a really bad temper?
The so-called monster isn't filmed to great effect. They poorly utilize some camera gimmicks to cover the design of the monster. Yes, there's nudity and several instances of interrupted sex. There's a kid posse at one point, out to bag the monster (they get a grizzly instead). The editing was sloppy, giving this movie an amateur feel. It was filmed in 2008 but they just now got around to releasing it on DVD (I don't believe there was a theatrical release). It's not terrible but it's not all that good either. It's okay to watch once. I'm definitely not keeping it to watch again.

"We got a thing, a people may be dead thing." After a brutal murder takes place Sheriff Bailey (Cain) is called to investigate. After his dreams become more and more real he wonders if they hold the key to solving the crime. This movie has a combination of many ideas from other movies, and when put together in this movie...none of them really work. This is pretty much a movie that has talking in between the sex, nudity and gore. The acting is not that impressive, and the effects are pretty low budget. The overall idea is that there is a serial killer on the loose and going after people while they are having sex, because when the killer watches, only then can it turn into the killing form. I'm not kidding. Overall, not a very good movie, but when Dean Cain is the biggest name they can get the expectations are a little lower. Overall, there have been worse horror movies that have come out, but not many. I give it a C-.

Would I watch again? - Nope.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Wendigo horror flick. July 31, 2014
By dhart
Format:DVD
If it had not been for the irritating behavior of Dean Cain's sheriff in regards to his daughter I might have given this an additional star, but I
felt that it was over done and distracted from the story. A Wendigo story with several people being mysteriously killed by the shape shifter until it is eventually killed. Standard fare, but it would have been better without the overkill behavior they had Dean Cain exhibiting about his daughter. It felt more like sexual obsession than a father worrying about his daughter.

1.0 out of 5 stars low budget monster move September 26, 2012
By leep
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
The story line was hard to take serisouly and the monster looked silly. I can rent a monster costume that looked better than what the guy was wearing in this movie.

Poor Dean Cain--how did he get involved with this mess of a movie.

Great to watch with some nice surprises. Makes you wonder why Dean Cain hasn't done more as he's very capable of carrying a film as a leading man. Read more
