Starring: Gary Busey
How Do You Hunt the Predator When You Are the Prey?
|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 Buse, 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!|
Editor's NoteThat Gary Busey makes anything watchable is proven yet again with MANEATER, a made-for-TV movie about a town held in the grips of terror. Think JAWS, but replace "shark" with "tiger." In any case, Busey's mysterious alchemy is again at work in his role as a town sheriff: keeping order amid chaos, mending plot holes, and making the ridiculous palpable.
