A Bengal Tiger is Burning Brightly in this Trailer

Burning Bright is a film from director Carlos Brooks that involves a hurricane and an escaped Bengal tiger. A brother and sister are left alone in a boarded up house to fend for themselves when this large beast is accidentally, or purposely released. The film uses a live tiger with very little CG and Brooks says of the production "I couldn’t believe how virtually everybody was totally repulsed by it [tiger attack]! They wanted it to stop. I think it’s because even though we had used prosthetics, the tiger was still -- again -- 100% real. And therefore what happens very much comes off as disturbing" (Bloody). A full interview with Brooks is available below along with a leaked trailer that shows one very ravenous tiger on the prowl.
