Drop-dead gorgeous Ronnie Deal is an up-and-comer at Velocity Pictures, whose enviable, fast-paced Hollywood lifestyle takes a major detour after a really bad day at the office. Fuming at the Tiki Shack Bar over a rival's latest attempt to derail her career, Ronnie comes to the rescue of a girl being beaten by an angry thug, unaware that Antsy Carruth has stolen twenty-five grand from her drug mule ex-boyfriend, and hired enforcer Neon Polk has been sent to get the money back. When Ronnie batters Polk unconscious with a beer bottle and Antsy takes a powder, Polk, humiliated and blinded with rage, seeks vengeance.

But people in The Business don't call Ronnie "Raw Deal" for nothing, and Polk won't have his revenge without paying for it. Enter Ellis Langford, ex-con and aspiring screenwriter. Langford has an angry ex-wife, a long-lost child, and a pair of Hispanic killers who want him dead, but if showing Ronnie how to make a real "killing" will earn him the Hollywood payday he's after . . .

Fast, furious, and laugh-out-loud funny, Man Eater is a stylish, cinematic thriller fans of Tinseltown high adventure are sure to enjoy.

Fuming at the Tiki Shack Bar over a rival's latest attempt to derail her career, Ronnie intervenes on behalf of a female patron who's being beaten unmercifully by an angry thug, unaware that Antsy Carruth has stolen twenty-five grand from her drug mule ex-boyfriend and that hired enforcer Neon Polk has been sent by the boyfriend's supplier to get the money back. Ronnie batters Polk unconscious with a beer bottle, Antsy takes a powder, and Polk, humiliated and blinded by rage, suddenly has a new, all-encompassing mission in life: seeking revenge on Ronnie Deal.
But people in the movie business don't call Ronnie "Raw Deal" for nothing, and Polk won't have his revenge without paying for it dearly. Enter Ellis Langford, ex-con and aspiring screenwriter. Langford has an angry ex-wife, a child he hasn't seen in eight years, and a pair of Hispanic killers on his trail who want his head on a plate - yet when Ronnie makes him an offer he can't refuse on his latest screenplay, he has no choice but to show the lady how to be as fierce a killer on the street as she is in the boardroom.
