It's an exciting Saturday night movie which is pleasant to look at (and not only because of the beautiful Briana Evigan).

As the film rambles on, it all gets a bit repetitive, especially since the house isn't that big.

But the best part of the film is in fact the ending, which is entirely unexpected and demonstrates a hard truth about humanity...

One more creepy role for this fascinating actor.

For me, the best fragment was the exciting moment when she tries to escape through the "dirty laundry" shaft.

"Burning Bright" is a predictable, but also tense and engaging thriller.

Beside some silly flaws, it was an enjoyable movie.

Only watch this if you're stoned, so bored that you cannot physically be rendered any more bored, or ill in bed taking the day off work.

While I wouldn't say that this is a movie to seek out, if you come across it during a slow day, you could do a lot worse.

super suspenseful thriller!!.

Worth watching.

It stretches believability in so many respect that it detracts a little but the actual film is rather entertaining once you get past that.

This is a lower budgeted film but I enjoyed it.

"Burning Bright" is a low-budget, but entertaining nail-biter that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

The result is still a very organic film with some stunning scenes featuring our big cat (one in particular, where he licks sweat off the floor, was memorable to me).

It is quiet perfect of how to make a suspenseful thriller.

What an entertaining film!.

Tense and Engaging Thriller .

But if your expectations are low, you love tigers and enjoy decent thrillers, you will probably find this entertaining enough.

That's the only thing that's original in this film, the tiger, because the rest is so predictable.

don't waste your time even if you have time to waste!!!!!!!.

The beast gets an ominous introduction from a serious and kookily compelling Meatloaf, giving a clue as to the offbeat nature of things to come.

Set in predominately one location, and with a minimal cast, this is one of the best examples at making not only a movie, but also making it entertaining and thrilling, captivating and memorable.

frigging retarded don't waste your time .

"Quid Pro Quo" director Carlos Brooks and "An American Girl: Chrissa Stands Strong" scenarists Christine Coyle Johnson and Julie Prendiville Roux have whipped up a genuinely suspenseful little claustrophobic thriller about murder and mayhem that relies less on CGI and more on the real thing.

One scene in particular was very intense.

Pretty entertaining straight-to-video .

This stalking here gives these scenes, from the attack in the laundry room while trying to dial here which it traps her in the vent shaft leading out of the room upstairs and the stalking in the bedrooms trapping them under the bed makes for some thrilling action to go along with the thrilling stalking.

It's one of the most thrilling films I have seen in years.

A typical cliché story with quite some excitement.

It was very suspenseful and scary all the way through, really demonstrating how truly frightening such an animal can be out of its cage!

That having been said, at least it was everything I expected it to be; read the premise and you know you're in for a hilariously bland plot, typical horror movie format, far-fetched scenarios and ridiculously cliché close-calls.

On the other hand some may find how she handles her demanding autistic brother and the Tiger itself fascinating.

I must admit that we spent most of the film yelling for her to watch out and close the doors behind her (elementary, really) but despite its faults this film managed to keep us on the edge of our seats and I would happily recommend it.

Burning Bright is an intelligent, tense and highly enjoyable film that is a cut above many of it's higher budgeted rivals.

It is a pretty predictable but still enjoyable little movie we have here.

I must say that I quite enjoyed it.

Would definitely recommend this title, just for something to put on every once in a while for an enjoyable film.
