Poor TV Movie

Maneaters Are Loose! (1978)

* (out of 4)

Extremely bad made-for-TV movie has a crazy farmer letting loose a couple maneating tigers, which soon start stalking a California town. Many people turn a blind eye to the matter at hand but a detective (Tom Skerritt) knows something isn't adding up as more people go missing. I enjoy a good made-for-TV movie as much as the next person but this one here is just pure boredom. I could never get involved in the story because of the rather poor writing and it appears none of the cast members were too thrilled with their characters because most sleepwalk through the film. I've always enjoyed Skerritt but you can just look at his face and see that he's incredibly bored here. I'm not sure if he had any habits at the time he made this movie but he just really seems to be wishing he's in another movie or perhaps there's something else wrong. Stave Forrest and Dabney Coleman have supporting roles but don't add much to the movie. The biggest problem is that there's a lot of dialogue scenes but none of them are interesting. I believe it was meant to deliver some character development but that never happens and in the end you can't help but wish the tigers would finish everyone off so that the movie would be over.
