Tigers, Hurricanes, and Autism, Oh My! Burning Bright Roars Onto DVD

Believe it or not, director Carlos Brooks’ acclaimed suspense yarn “Burning Bright” is a movie about a girl who must protect her autistic little brother from the carnivorous clutches of an angry tiger that has managed to sneak inside their home during a hurricane. With a plot like that, how could you possibly go wrong? I’ll be the first to admit that I thought the film sounded remarkably cheesy, that is, until I happened upon the official trailer, which has been carefully embedded below. Call me crazy, but this one appears a lot stronger than the synopsis makes it out to be. If you feel the need to doubt me, check out the clip for yourself.
