Films: Maneater (2007)
Location: Forest/Civilized Area
Height/Weight: That of an average tiger.
Summary: Oh joy, another entry into the Maneater Series chock full of bad acting and even worse CG-wait. That tiger is real?! Okay, sign me-oh...Gary Busey is in it. Hmmmm...
History: One day on the Appalachian Trail, a Bengal tiger escaped into the wood near a small town. If the words are to be believed, this is a tiger said to have killed over 200 people back in India. Now, it's turning the place into its hunting grounds, and the only person who can stop it is...mayor who is played by Busey. We're doomed...
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: After killing many, the tiger is finally brought down when the mayor shoots a gas tank next to it, obliterating the cat.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 4-We may never SEE the tiger kill anyone, but do we have to? Last time we checked, getting mauled by one of the deadliest big cats on Earth isn't exactly a pretty sight. Also, real tiger. Can't go wrong with that.
Trivia: -The tiger was played by multiple ones during production. While Busey actually enjoyed their company, actor Ian D. Clark was constantly worrying about them attacking everybody. As one should, really.
-Tigers over the last century have been forced into human settlements due to their habitats being destroyed for resources. But even before that, they became infamous for their attacks on people. The one with the highest body count was the Champawat Tiger, a Bengal tigress who offed an estimated 436 people during the late 19th-early 20th century! She was finally shot and killed in 1907 after countless failed attempts. Sweetly, the one who killed her had a change in heart from being a hunter to helping her kind.
