Editorial Reviews

Deep in the Texas bayous, amidst the dankest of whorehouses and bars, resides the decrepit Starlight Hotel. Owned and operated by intensely lonely Judd (Neville Brand), the Starlight receives few patrons. Perhaps it’s the remote backwoods location. Perhaps it’s Judd’s violent mood swings. Or perhaps it’s the giant flesh-hungry crocodile in the backyard. But one dark steamy night finds the Starlight visited by a runaway prostitute (Roberta Collins), a very strange young couple (Marilyn Burns and William Finley) and their ward (Kyle Richards), a dying father and his daughter (Mel Ferrer and Crystin Sinclaire), and a sex-starved local named Buck (Robert Englund) who really likes to… Directed by Tobe Hooper (The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Poltergeist), Eaten Alive is a raw, sweaty, and bizarre portrayal of madness run amok in rural America.

First off: Elite's widescreen DVD is terrific - this is the best this film is ever going to look. This semi-disappointing follow-up to Texas Chainsaw Massacre involves a lunatic who kills guests and feeds their bodies to a crocodile that lives in the next door swamp. Things are off to a slow start at the beginning (you get a lot of sleazy decor) but once Hooper cranks up the action to ram speed there are enough ladies screaming, prostitutes running, lords-a-leaping, maids-a-milking - you get the idea. The only problem is the hotel set. It looks like a cheap set. In the chase scenes, there is no camera movement - everyone just runs around in circles in one wide shot. The crocodile is not the most realistic thing ever (the victims can be seen forcing themselves into its mouth). Yet, the performances are good and the whole affair is actually very disturbing. On that note, I recommend you check into this "Horror Hotel" for a little "Starlight Slaughter" if you know what I mean.

Eaten Alive is a fun and twisted low-budget horror that fans of the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre will enjoy. Three of the original cast and crew take part in this movie, and as you watch, you will often be reminded of TCM. The soundtrack to this film is very similar to TCM, but still original.

There is a fair amount of unnecessary dialogue and adding crocidiles to this storyline seems a bit gimmicky, besides, they look really fake. Expect a small amount of really well done gore effects.

The story here isn't really about the crocodiles at all, it's about the creepy motel manager. He is really strange, but not nearly as creepy as some of the characters in Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Overall Eaten Alive is a better than average horror flick that verges on being really creepy! 3 1/2 STARS

now this is the real "TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE PART 2" I mean this flick is just flat out great!!!!! I love it!! Weather people want to admit it or not this flick has alot of the same quality atmosphere that (T.C.M.)has. The psycho in this flick is a psycho!!! He reminds u of all three sick-os in (T.C.M.)"leatherface" "weasley little brother" & "the cook" all rolled up in one nuttt cake of a dude & in my opinion thats where 75% of the creeeepy sick-o atmosphere comes from. The other 25% is split between the gator & the isolated setting. This is TOBE HOOPER'S ultimate underrated movie & I truley believe that this movie would have been recieved much better by the public & critics if it wasn't for the massive sucsess of "TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE" & also if it wasn't released so soon after (T.C.M.) there might have been some breathing room for it to blossom on its own. Anyway I think this belongs in every true fanz horror collection with out a doubt!! So get it! Later on fellow horror fanz!!! E!!!N!!!J!!!O!!!Y!!!

First off, let me warn you: this is nowhere near The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. I do have to give the film credit though, as it holds up considerably well, being in the shadow of that master film. It's about a crazed redneck feeding irate motel customers to his pet crocodile (or was it alligator?), and Hooper tries for the ambience of Texas Chainsaw, and it's emotional intensity. As for how well he did, let's just say that you should put Texas Chainsaw completely out of your mind while seeing this, or you'll be very disappointed. But if you like a little backwoods horror, this one's not too bad.

Chainsaw is the perfect horror movie, and although this is no chainsaw, it is definitley the work of the same man. This is about as good a terror film can be without being TCM. The film is never boring, the villian is ultra creepy (think drayton sawyer from TCM running a hotel), and the cinematography is perfect. I'm not exactly sure what everyones problem is with the music, it seems to fit seamlessly. Well I'm sorry folks, I just gotta say i like this one. The gator effects however do leave a little to be desired.

Judd is insane; he owns the Startlight Hotel in a swamp. He feeds his guests to his pet crocodile. After the success of "Jaws," Tobe Hooper tried his hand at directing a creature feature, "Eaten Alive." This movie is very similar to "Psycho." Early in the film, Judd repeatedly strikes a young prostitute with a rake, stabbing her numerous times. While she is still breathing, he throws her off the front porch railing. The crocodile rises up from the water and gobbles her up. Just as in "Psycho," her sister, and also her father, come by the hotel looking for her.

This movie is very intense, from its bloody beginning to its bloody ending. Though not as provocative as Tobe`s "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre," it manages to serve its purpose at being a terrifying and gruesome movie.

"Eaten Alive" would've fared better if it had been filmed on location rather than the obvious sound stage. The crocodile was extremely unrealistic. In fact, there were several scenes where it looked like a miniature version was used in lieu of a life-size one. Look closely at the scene where Snoopy the dog is about to be devoured.

There are big name stars in this movie such as Mel Ferrer and Carolyn Jones, but they are underused. Marilyn Burns from "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" spends much of her time tied to a bed. A young Robert Englund, who played Freddy Krueger in "A Nightmare on Elm Street," plays Buck, an oversexed, troublemaking redneck.

If you like movies about alligators and crocodiles on the rampage, rent or buy Tobe Hooper's "Crocodile." It is definitely more entertaining than "Eaten Alive. In "Crocodile," a group of teens are relentlessly pursued by a crocodile because one of them is unknowingly carrying her eggs. The body count is high. There are numerous mutilations as the teens are killed one by one. Who will live and who will die?
