Good god, I love Media Blasters! Every time you turn around, these guys are unleashing yet another depraved classic from years gone past. It seems that most of the stuff they release are Japanese anime flicks, a genre I haven't gotten into in a serious way yet, but they also make sure to release tons of gooey gorefests that send horror fans into paroxysms of joy. And they go out of their way (usually) to stuff the disc with plenty of supplemental materials like trailers, interviews, and commentaries. That doesn't sound like a big deal since lots of DVDs today contain extras, but it's a lot easier to find someone like Oliver Stone than it is to uncover the whereabouts of Ruggero Deodato or Umberto Lenzi. Heck, these guys actually locate cult favorites like George Eastman and Ivan Rassimov in order to interview them on camera! If you love films that delve deep into the inner recesses of shock cinema, Media Blasters is the place for you. And one film that definitely plumbs the depths is Umberto Lenzi's 1980 gutmuncher "Mangiati Vivi," better known as "Eaten Alive." Forget about Tobe Hooper's lame alligator flick of the same name; this one is the real deal.

"Eaten Alive" is one of the sicker entries in the much beloved cannibal genre. Helmed by the director responsible for the massively entertaining giallo "Seven Blood-Stained Orchids," "Mangiati Vivi" follows the exploits of one Sheila Morris (Janet Agren) as she attempts to find out what happened to her sister Diana (Paola Senatore). Dear Diana fell in with a Jim Jones knock off named Jonas (Ivan Rassimov) and fled to New Guinea with all of her money. At first, we don't know anything about Morris's dilemma, but we do know something isn't quite right in New York City.

Eaten Alive - Another film from Umberto Lenzi, famed director of Cannibal Ferox. This one is about a beautiful blonde-haired bombshell who is searching for her sister in the jungle. She gets help from an adventurous Indiana Jones type guy just a lot less cartoony. On their way they see a display of cannibalism before them from a local tribe and are understandably frightened by this and now want to get as far away from this area as possible. They are soon captured though by a tribe, but they soon find out it isn't the cannibal tribe but one that her sister belongs to, that has a good number of english-speaking Americans in it. They are brought to the tribe's town that they live in and protect from the cannibals inhabiting the surrounding jungle. The tribe's leader is an American who believes in "purification" and such, something to do with cleansing yourself. For instance no alcohol is allowed in this place and if this guy finds you with it, consider yourself next to be carted out of the place, given a gun and a flashlight and then told "good luck with the cannibals". There is a funeral procession occuring and the main character, miss blonde bombshell, spots her brunnette sister as part of the procession. They watch as the widow of the man the funeral is for is systematically screwed by her three brother-in-laws to "break the ties of marriage". Afterwards our protagonist finally gets a chance to speak with her sister and her sister seems rather adamant about being a part of this tribe and not wanting to leave. Pretty soon our protagonist and the Indiana Jones type dude with her are called for a meeting with everyone else, and everyone is given some odd drink. Indiana Jones dude is given it but refuses to drink saying it's drugged.Read more ›

Lovely heroine Janet Agren tracks her missing sister to the wilds of New Guinea and hires hard-drinking adventurer Robert Kerman to help get her out. There's double jeopardy this time around--not only is sister Paola Senatore part of a fanatical Jim Jones-style cult, but the jungle surrounding the cult's compound is teeming with hungry cannibals, complete with the usual grungy faces and Ramones-style wigs. On the Minus side--like many DVDs, this suffers from exteriors that are way too bright, with some outdoor scenes almost white--not a good thing considering how many outdoor scenes there are. In the Plus column--the late great Ivan Rassimov gnashes the scenery as fanatical cult leader Jonas, and the cannibals give us gorehounds our money's worth. This film is often held in contempt because many of the ritual butchery and cannibalism scenes were lifted from other movies, namely MAN FROM DEEP RIVER, JUNGLE HOLOCAUST and MOUNTAIN OF THE CANNIBAL GOD. However, this makes EATEN ALIVE a sort of smorgasbord for cannibal fans, and if you can only own one of these gut-munchers maybe EATEN ALIVE/MANGIATI VIVI should be it. Yum yum, Eat'um UP!!!

Format: DVD
An Italian production, Eaten Alive (Mangiati Vivi) is a mind-numbing fantasy adventure set in the jungles of New Guinea, involving cannibals, and a religious cult, similar to that in Jonestown, Guyana. This film is not for the squeamish, as true to the title, people are indeed eaten alive. Also served up are ample nudity, dismemberment, sexual abuse, rape, decapitation, severed genetalia, and the butchery of humans and animals. Does it sound like a fun time?

Sheila Morris (Janet Agren) leaves New York for New Guinea, in search of her older sister Diane (Paola Senatore) who has vanished there. Upon arrival, she enlists the help of adventurer Mark Butler (Robert Kerman) to act as a guide. The ill prepared pair head into the jungle, and against long odds, do manage to locate Diana, living at religious sanctuary deep in the wilds, called the `unification village'. The group is led by the charismatic Jonas Melvyn (Ivan Rassimov), who apparently keeps his subjects under control through the use of religion, intimidation, and drugs. It is a bizarre situation, and Jonas who enjoys abusing women while they are under the influence, soon has Sheila naked and painted gold. The jungle is infested with cannibals, who make escape from the village nearly impossible. Butler finds this is true when he attempts an escape, only to be forced to return to the village by the ferocious blood thirsty cannibals. Enlisting the help of a native woman (Me Me Lai), Butler comes up with a final ill-fated plan for escape.

This version of director Umberto Lenzi's film runs just over 92 minutes long (not the 87 minutes stated on the back cover), and features some shocking scenes of brutality, where people are hacked up and consumed raw, in a most casual manner.
