Format: VHS Tape
"Eaten Alive" was Tobe Hooper's follow-up film following "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre," but it is no where near to being in the same class as they legendary cult film. Neville Brand stars as Judd, a good old boy who runs the Starlight Hotel, a dilapidated place out on the bayou. It turns out Judd is a bit of a psychotic who like to take any of the hotel's guests who get on his bad side and serve them up to his pet crocodile from Africa. My understanding is that Hooper actually had a bigger budget for this film than on "Massacre," but the film simply misses the feeling of terror that permeated his previous film. Even though this is a more stylistic film from the director's standpoint, it is just a sub-standard horror film full of stuff we have basically seen before. Robert (Freddie Krueger) Englund has a minor role in this 1976 film playing a horny young dude, while Kyle Richards (Lindsay in the original "Halloween") plays the daughter of an ill-fated family. "Eaten Alive" was also released as "Horror Hotel" and "Murder on the Bayou." If you are into killer crocodile/alligator films, then get this and "Lake Placid" for a weekend double-feature.

Gore With A Twist 10 Sept. 2002
By gore_fiend - Published on Amazon.com
Emerald Jungle, also known as Eaten Alive, by Umberto Lenzi, of Cannibal Ferox fame, offers up all the gore, flesh eating, and nude females that one expects from the Italian cannibal genre but this time the plot of the movie is a bit stranger, if not better, than usual. The basic plot outline of the film is this, a film is found by the dead boby of a cannibal living in New York, the film contains fotage of a womans long lost sister, the woman heads to the jungle in search for her sister only to find out that she has joined up with a religious cult seeking solitude in the jungle, whos leader feeds his followers drugs to obtain their loyalty. Where do the cannibals come in you ask? Well the cannibals have the cults village surrounded, killing and eating anyone who wonders out away from protection. I highly recomend this film to lovers of Italian gore films or gore lovers in general.

Cannibals With A Twist 4 Sept. 2002
By gore_fiend - Published on Amazon.com
Emerald Jungle, also known as Eaten Alive, of the classic Italian cannibal genre was directed by Umberto Lenzi of Cannibal Ferox fame. It has all the blood and guts that we've come to love in our Italian films however this film has a twist which makes it different from the other films of this genre. The films focus is on a bizarre cult living in the jungle, who's leader feeds his followers drugs to obtain their complete faithfulness, and not on the cannibles who merely surround the cult waiting for members to venture out into the jungle away from protection. All in all this is a great film for gore fanatics like myself. No collection would be complete without it.
