Editorial Reviews

The hunter becomes the hunted when the forested shadows of the Appalachian Trail are stalked by a wild animal out of its element, hungry and born to ravage. After Sheriff Grady (Gary Busey, The Firm) finds a dismembered body in the area, he quickly discovers a print near the scene that identifies the predator as a Bengal tiger. Six hundred pounds, twelve feet from nose to tail, it’s one of the most powerful cats on Earth. Now it’s loose—and there’s no man on the Appalachian Trail with the skill, or the courage, to take it down. Maneater is the third installment in the Genius-branded "Maneater Series" and its now available for the first time on DVD!

"Maneater" is a made for TV movie about a tiger loose in the woods of Appalachia. The film is highly derivative of earlier films in the genre (notably "Jaws") but is actually better than most of the other comparable films. Understand that this isn't Academy Award fodder, but for a low budget horror movie, it works and is enjoyable to watch.

The film begins with several gruesome killings in the woods surrounding a small town. A local vet quickly examines the bite radius of the cast made from a victim's torso as being from a Bengal tiger. If that wasn't enough of a homage to "Jaws", the mayor also pleads that the sheriff not interrupt the "Corn and Apple Fest" due to concerns about the ravenous tiger. Gary Busey plays the sheriff, and exceeded my expectations, though he still has that kooky patina that makes him so interesting to watch. The tiger likes one boy (Ty Wood) who lives in a trailer, and therein begins the weird, mystical tiger-whisperer subplot that runs throughout the movie. Also making a peculiar entrance is Ian D. Clark as a Punjab tiger hunter. This at first struck me as utterly pointless, but actually his performance was one of the true highlights of the movie.

Needless to say, the carnage must continue for the film to work, and feeding grist into the mill is the Army National Guard, who show up with an arrogant smirk on their faces that doesn't last long. Aaron Hughes plays Sgt. Howe, and has a terrible accent that detracts from the generally good performances surrounding him. Fear not, his contingent is not part of the story for long. Throughout the film there are numerous confrontations with the press, and by the end I was praying that the Channel 8 Action News reporter could be eaten, preferably in slow motion, two or three times.

Incredibly fast, intelligent, and has a taste for blood. Tigers are at the top of the food chain and humans are a quick meal. This movie is excellent for the real fear factor alone, this has nothing to do with aliens, dinosaurs, or zombies. Imagine walking home one night and a seven hundred pound predator starts chasing you, meet the tiger. Gary Busey does a great job as a sheriff that's a bit out of his element, searching desperately for help. Have been waiting a long time for this movie, very glad to purchase it here on Amazon.

As another reviewer commented, I loved this movie. Most of these low budget animal-gone-wild-killing-people movies are very predictable, and much of this movie is highly derivative of Jaws. However, Gary Busey is plays the sheriff in a wonderfully understated way. The movie also injects humor at exactly the right times. An example was when the mayor gets upset about possibly losing the next election because of what was going on and one of the deputies deadpans that two of the dead weren't voters. And Ian Clark is superb as the experienced British tiger hunter. But what makes the movie different from so many others of the genre is the role played by Ty Wood. While Tony the Tiger seems intent on eating everyone else, Roy seems to connect with the tiger. There is a wonderful scene with Col. Jim and Roy discussing tigers. The action scenes were very well done and the ending is very exciting. All in all, one of the best and unknown movies of this type. Thanks to the Sci-Fi Channel for showing this great movie.

A tiger escapes during a road accident. So far, no surprises, but when a young boy is protected by the tiger and is unafraid of the largest wild cat, the story takes an interesting turn. This large cat kills lots of people including the boy's mother. Even a professional tiger hunter is unable to stop the relentless attacks. Better than average creature feature.

Low budget film with decent acting.
Surprised Busey who is at least a known actor was in the film.
Unfortunately you hardly ever actually saw the so called Man Eating Tiger actually attack anyone until the end of the movie.

Still I have to say it was enjoyable to watch if at times a bit gory with the body parts lying around.

With the exception of the obvious lack of military advisors on the film crew, this movie does a good job of keeping things interesting. Though you know the basic storyline, there were enough plot twists and surprises to keep this film interesting. Worth the watch.,..

That was a good movie. It was originally released in 2007 which explains why Gary Busey looked so good! The acting was well done and the story was solid. It even had a mostly happy ending. I enjoyed it!
