Burning Bright


Straight-to-DVD thriller sees tiger stalk woman and autistic brother Discuss this article

Why does so much forgettable, low- budget, straight-to-DVD trash find itself enjoying a proper cinematic release in the UAE? A grassroots thriller about a young woman stuck inside her home with just an autistic younger brother and a ravenous tiger for company, Burning Bright is an able vehicle for 86 minutes of glass-shattering shrieks and skimpy sweat-drenched clothing. So far it’s only been seen by bargain-bin buyers in north America, following a DVD release in 2010, but now cost-conscious cinema programmers in the UAE are giving this dirge a regrettable big-screen debut.
