Burning Bright is sure to be an instant sellout during its debut UK performances on the Discovery Screen at this year’s Film4 Frightfest, and those who miss out on a chance to see the hungry-tiger-on-the-loose flick at the fest now have reason not to be too disappointed – it’s landing on UK DVD shelves this September 6th!
Check out the trailer, DVD cover art, synopsis and more from the press release below:
When 20-year-old Kelly (Briana Evigan) wakes late at night during a hurricane, she finds a hungry tiger stalking her through her home. With every door and window boarded up from the outside and her stepfather nowhere to be found, Kelly fights frantically to stay one step ahead of the killer beast. Torn between protecting her autistic brother Tom and saving herself from a brutal mauling, Kelly’s situation becomes more complicated and desperate at every terrifying turn.
Briana Evigan, the stunning star of Step Up 2: The Streets and Sorority Row, leads a strong young cast supported by newcomer Charlie Tahan as her vulnerable disabled brother and Garret Dillahunt (No Country for Old Men, The Road) as her stepfather. Burning Bright also boasts a star turn from hell-raising rocker Meat Loaf as the trader who finds a home for the savage Bengali tiger.
The footage of the tiger was shot within the house; no animatronics, no tricks – this tiger is very real and very hungry.
A roaring and engaging ride with a unique concept and suspenseful plot, director Carlos Brooks’ Burning Bright is this year’s adrenalin-pumped thriller that is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat till its bloody finale.
Question: Am I the only one seriously hoping for an Alien 3/The Relic rip-off shot with the tiger licking our pinned heroine’s face?
