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!

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.

I mostly like Maneater because the actual killings are *exceptionally* violent. Of course, there's a fair share of pointless drama involving the father and daughter pertaining to boyfriends, sex and their dead wife/mother (and how the father is seeing illusions that she's still really alive and well when she's actually anything but) but I was able to overlook these portions of the movie and focus on the horror aspect.

Be warned though- there's a lot of nudity and the sexual scenes are more revealing than in other films of the same genre. You will see sexual positions that are more realistic and, in my opinion at least, more unacceptable than in other horror movies.

The actual monster doing the killings is... well, exactly *who* is turning into a monster, roaming the woods late at night and eating fresh flesh is a mystery that I won't reveal. It's one of the characters though, but I'm not saying which one. The way the monster murders his victims is more violent than in several other horror films I could name- in some instance he graphically rips at a womans body and tears her beautiful flesh completely off, showing blood dripping down her face as she screams and struggles to survive. The film makers did a wonderful job in the graphics department.

I admit the storyline is pretty mediocre. There's just way too much pointlessness involving the father, his daughter, the teenagers having constant conversations involving typical stuff pertaining to their age group, and even the cops rattle their jaws one too many times. However, because of the fair amount of suspense and of course the presence of the monsters themselves, I will rate Maneater fairly high.

Just be warned- there's a LOT of movies with the same exact title that are *nothing* like this. Don't accidentally pick up a romantic comedy now, you hear!
