Did You Know?


Based on the novel 'Shikar' by Jack Warner. See more »


Several of the attack scenes show the tiger charging the victim from the front. All cats, from house mousers to the largest tigers, approach prey from the rear or side, and kill with a bite through the spine at the base of the neck. There are several documented cases of people avoiding big cat attack simply by keeping the approaching animal in front of them. See more »

Bengal tiger
12 December 2009 | by kairinglerSee all my reviews

Gary Busey stars as the sheriff of a small town in the Applachian Mountains where a series of tiger attacks has the community in an uproar. With the upcoming festival drawing near the mayor is worried about all of the visitors abandoning his town because they are scared of the tiger, the little boy in this movie has a problem with sleepwalking which involves him with the tiger , but i won't ruin it for those of you who haven't seen this movie yet. Gary Busey seems kinda stiff cardboard like in his acting, but it is a real performance , very character driven, after the national guard and the townspeople can't handle the tiger, a tiger hunter from India comes to help the sheriff track down the manheater in hopes of killing it,, it is laughable with how the guardsmen handle the whole tiger dealings,, and watching the media is hilarious,, not a bad movie for sci-fi.
