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

Tense and Engaging Thriller .

Worth watching.

A typical cliché story with quite some excitement.

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.

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

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

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

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

Beside some silly flaws, it was an enjoyable movie.

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

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

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

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

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

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

I must say that I quite enjoyed it.

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

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.

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.

What an entertaining film!.

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.

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.

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.

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

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).

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

super suspenseful thriller!!.

One more creepy role for this fascinating actor.

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

"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.

This is a lower budgeted film but I enjoyed it.

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

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

Pretty entertaining straight-to-video .

frigging retarded don't waste your time .

One scene in particular was very intense.

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.
