"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.
