I know what you did last Bank Holiday.. Camp Festival or Camp Frightfest?

Did you pay a fortune to live like a refugee, camped in a site that resembles District 9 to have your ears and minds blown by your favourite artist or did you join the hordes of hipsters at Frightfest, the UK’s fantasy and horror festival, to be scared witless at the premiere of Burning Bright?

The new edge-of-your-seat thriller premiered at the five-day gorefest to big audience buzz and is due for DVD release on September, 6th.

Burning Bright is about a young woman who becomes trapped in a house with a ravenous tiger during a hurricane, and must decide whether 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.

Hell-raising rocker Meat Loaf, who showed off his ample talents in Fight Club, returns to the big screen to star as the trader who finds a home for the savage Bengali tiger.

And another factoid that’ll shock horror fans, the tiger in the film is real. Watch very closely, the tiger was shot within the house: no animatronics, no tricks.

She should have had Mike Tyson or the guys from The Hangover as one of her ‘phone a friends’ – problem solved.
