From the studio that delivered Stephen King's The Mist and Teeth (recently seen on the Horror Channel) comes a new thriller, Burning Bright.
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 leads a strong young cast supported by newcomer Charlie Tahan as her vulnerable disabled brother, Garret Dillahunt and rocker Meat Loaf as the trader who finds a home for the savage Bengali tiger. Talking of which the footage of the tiger was shot within the house; no animatronics, no tricks - this tiger is very real and very hungry.
Burning Bright hits the DVD format on September 6th and is getting its UK premiere on the Discovery Screen at this years FrightFest.
