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.

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!

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.

MANEATER is a movie that could've been better---but it's basically just another low budget horror flick. Employing Indian folklore as its basis, the movie explores the legendary Wendigo, a shapeshifting cannibal terrorizing a small town.
Dean Cain plays the sheriff, a former criminal profiler, carrying the burden of a disappeared wife and a sexually awakening 17 year old daughter...and he's having violent dreams involving an apparent serial killer.
The script tries to make Cain a potential suspect as well as an overly protective father.
The creature effects are pretty cheesy as evidenced in the chaotic jerky camerawork which doesn't give us a clear image of the monster, just his glowing eyes. The Wendigo's identity is somewhat a surprise. There's plenty of boob shots and poorly filmed gore. Cain's performance doesn't help---he's in some kind of stuporous vacuum during the movie, appearing to be earning his salary, but nothing more. The rest of the lesser-known cast is merely adequate.
MANEATER was filmed in 2008 and sat on the shelf until this DVD release. It's moderately entertaining for real horror maniacs but not a highly recommended entry.

Harry Baily (Dean cain) is a profiler who is almost like a psychic detective. He lives in the small California town of Blackwood with his daughter Pearl (Lacy Phillips) and his wife (Shea Curry) who he is still waiting for her to come back from the store. A series of killings in town causes one to believe a Wendingo shapeshifter (looks like a Morlock) in on the loose.

This is a basic 80's style horror film, a little humor, a little teen sex, a bad looking monster, and three minimum nude scenes. 3 1/2 stars

Guide: F-word, sex, nudity (Nikki Moore, Allison Kyler, Mercy Malick)
