* {{Agent Mulder}}: Harry - Pretty much automatically believes the whole "it's decides it's not a bear" thing, to bear. Its justified though as he's a former FBI profiler and quickly realises the point where he starts screaming at a guy because he won't admit that the killer crime scene is missing some tell-tale signs of a Wendigo. bear attack.

** Possibly justfied as Harry is a former FBI profiler who knows through analysis it couldn't have been a bear and some "almost human" DNA was located at the first crime scene.

''Maneater'' is a direct-to-video horror film from 2009. Funnily enough, the monster eats humans. The film stars Dean Cain, Cristopher Darga and Saginaw Grant as a trio of policemen hunting down a mysterious killer in a small town next door to an Indian Reservation. Harry, our protagonist, is a former {{FBI agent}} who moves to get a break from the Copious amounts of bloodletting and danger that comes with his job.

When the town you move to harbors a supernatural cannibal spirit, you've picked the wrong town.

!!This film contains examples of :

* {{Agent Mulder}}: Harry - Pretty much automatically believes the whole "it's not a bear" thing, to the point where he starts screaming at a guy because he won't admit that the killer is a Wendigo.
* {{Dark and Troubled Past}}: Harry was cheated on by his wife, leading him to believe that [[spoiler: he might be the Wendigo, as the creature can manifest itself after personal betrayal]].
* {{Death By Sex}}: Being as the Wendigo hunts down the impure as its prey, this is kind of expected. Examples: The Wendigo's first victims get turned into beefsteak. The Wendigo stalks Kay and her boyfriend outside their bedroom window when they have sex at a party, and even manages to get into Pearl's house when she's getting it on.
* {{Glowing Eyes of Doom}}: The Wendigo has a pair of these, in a lovely, bloodthirsty shade of sky blue.
* {{Overprotective Dad}}: Harry, to the extreme. Pearl: "I was out killing the bear, and you're worried about me F***ING?!"
* {{Pervert Dad}}: Subverted, when a fellow officer comments "She's not your wife, Harry!" See {{Overprotective Dad}}.
* {{Son of a Whore}}: [[spoiler: Stanley]], and his wendigo transformations are instigated by his discovery of this.
* {{Split Personality Takeover}}: Happens to Red Bear when he finds out his wife cheated on him, turning him into a Wendigo. Also happens to [[spoiler: Stanley and Zeus]].
* {{Wendigo}}: The name given to the film's creature. Mostly similar to the original myth, with some added superpowers.
* {{Windows Of The Soul}}: Don't look into its eyes, or [[spoiler: you will become one yourself...]]
