What's that? Oh no, it's a man-eating tiger! Everyone, run for your lives! Oh wait, it's not a tiger. Oh my God, it's worse! It's a Sci Fi Channel original! RUN!

Audience Reviews for Maneater

A Gary Busey vs. a Tiger movie should be more entertaining than this.

Ken Stachnik

Super Reviewer

A half decent made for TV film starring Gary Busey as a sheriff of a small town with an escaped Tiger on the loose. It has some pretty gory make up scenes, surprised it's a PG?! Very much a Jaws on land and not too be taken seriously.

Don't let that monstrous demon on the cover fool you. This tiger is as soft as they come. It looks about as ferocious as a Furby as it bounds towards the camera looking for hugs. It reaches highs of wonderful hilarity when we hear the tiger roar, but see him just being playful and content. Luckily, to counterbalance this, we have the true wild beast, Gary Busey. Busey plays it straight, which is to his credit. It has all the wonderful characters, and more. The greedy mayor, concerned about tourism, the hunter with a score to settle etc. These characters are actually played quite well, and the mayor even has a well played emotional scene. It's still got clunky dialogue, confused looking supporting actors, and impossible action sequences (this tiger is half ninja). It's a lot of fun and should be treated for the gem it is.
