Storyline

In Montgomery County, Kelly Taylor is ready to go to college and takes her autistic brother, Tom, to a specialized institution. However, the bank informs her that she does not have sufficient funds in her account to honor her check. Her stepfather, Johnny Gaveneau, withdrew the money from her account the day before. When Kelly arrives home, Johnny reveals that he used the money to buy a tiger for his 'safari show' project. In addition he has the house reinforced, in order to protect it from hurricanes, so all the windows and external doors are covered with wood. When Kelly awakes, she finds that the starving tiger is inside the house and Tom and she are trapped with the ravenous animal. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

unexpected greatness
27 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

A spontaneous watch I expected this movie to be okay at best. A girl and her autistic brother are trapped in a two story house with an overly enraged former circus tiger who wants to do nothing but murder every single face on the planet, justifiably of course. I expected a low budget gore fest with some funny dialogue and scenes to make fun with but what I did get was an extremely well written, intelligent character base with great graphics and some of the best suspenseful scenes I've seen in horror movies. The main girl is very smart, resourceful and actually makes you want to have her live through this, at some point, you are on her side and you don't know how it happened cause this is a killer animal movie and you usually want the animal to win. There's a pretty good though predictable twist but it's works out because it makes everything make sense and it completes the movie. I really recommend this with an 8 out of 10.
