Burning Bright Coming Soon from Momentum...

Garret Dillahunt is a personal favorite. He’s proven time and time again that he’s one of the most reliable character actors working in America today. From his roles in HBO’s excellent Deadwood, to Andrew Dominik’s phenomenal Assassination of Jesse James all the way through to Dennis Iliadis pedestrian re-make of Wes Carven’s notorious Last House on the Left and his cameos in prestigious movies like John Hillcoat’s The Road and the Cohen Brothers Oscar winner No Country for Old Men (both based on Cormac McCarthy books incidentally), Dillahunt has left a strong impression on me. So strong infact, I will now watch anything that features this excellent new actor.

Coming in September is Burning Bright. A new horror film that will debut at this year’s Fright-fest:

From the studio that had terrified you with Stephen King’s The Mist and Teeth comes the new edge-of-your-seat thriller BURNING BRIGHT. Trapped in a house with a ravenous tiger during a hurricane, a young woman must decide whether or not to sacrifice her younger brother to save her own skin.

When 20 year old Kelly (Briana Evigan) wakes late at night during a hurricane, she finds a hungry tiger stalking her through her home. With every door and window boarded up from the outside and her stepfather nowhere to be found, Kelly fights frantically to stay one step ahead of the killer beast. Torn between protecting her autistic brother Tom and saving herself from a brutal mauling, Kelly’s situation becomes more complicated and desperate at every terrifying turn.

Briana Evigan, the stunning star of Step Up 2: The Streets and Sorority Row, leads a strong young cast supported by newcomer Charlie Tahan as her vulnerable disabled brother and Garret Dillahunt (No Country for Old Men, The Road) as her step-father. BURNING BRIGHT also boasts a star turn from hell-raising rocker Meat Loaf as the trader who finds a home for the savage Bengali tiger.

The footage of the tiger was shot within the house; no animatronics, no tricks – this tiger is very real and very hungry.

A roaring and engaging ride with a unique concept and suspenseful plot, BURNING BRIGHT is this year’s adrenalin-pumped thriller that is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat till its bloody finale.

The DVD arrives shortly after its August debut on the 6th September, no word on what extras the disc will contain just yet; but as soon as I hear I’ll keep you all updated. In the mean time, check out the tasty looking trailer below:
