The Crypt Keeper had a Native American cousin?
3 May 2012 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

When I picked up this movie, I had no idea what it was about, or who was in it. I saw the DVD cover and decided to give it a go.

"Maneater" wasn't actually all that bad. It was, however, fairly mediocre, sad to say. There was nothing really unique that stood out in this movie.

It is about an native American Indian legendary creature called Wendigo. It supposedly drags off the impure, sinners and bad people and kill them. I am not personally familiar with the legend of the Wendigo, so I had no expectations for this storyline. And I found it to be adequate enough, just interesting enough to still be entertaining.

The effects in "Maneater" were alright as well, not top notch CGI and special effects, but still, they were working out well enough. However, the Wendigo itself sort of reminded me a bit of the Crypt Keeper from "Tales from the Crypt", though with odd glowing eyes. So it left me sort of in a dilemma; was this Wendigo undead or just some sort of creature?

Initially when I saw Dean Cain in the lead role, I sort of though this would be bad, as I am (clearly) not a fan of his work. But he actually did alright in "Maneater", and it is great to see he have finally shed that "Louis and Clark" mantle.

"Maneater" wasn't really particularly scary, so if you are in this for a scary movie, then this might not be the ideal choice. The story is alright, but there are far better horror movies available. Having seen this movie now, I somehow feel like it was meant as a TV movie.
