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.

Customer Reviews

With some good action scenes it's very fast paced.
C. Chow
When Tobe Hooper released "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" in 1974, people went wild over this up and coming horror film director.
Jeffrey Leach
There is definitely room for improvement, however, I don't know why I like this movie as much as I do.

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!!!

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.

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.

No this isn't near as good as The Chainsaw Massacre and nothing Tobe Hooper has done has been, BUT just see this to see NEVILLE BRAND! The man was an underrated actor who plays his underplayed role just right!

This IS a lost classic that deserves to be watched and appreciated for the low budget obviously stretched and all the great "B" actors contained within. IGNORE the idiots who whine about this and that and pop up the popcorn and enjoy a drive-in secind run feature that is more enjoyable now than ever! Can't wait to see the new materials used!!!!

Having done mostly TV prior to Eaten Alive Neville Brand stands out as a psychotic redneck who owns a dilapidated hotel in the backwater swamps of Louisiana. He kills people and feeds their bodies to a large pet crocodile he keeps in the swamp beside his estableshment. Also of note is a very young Robert Englund as Buck the local punk. although not even close to Tobe Hoopers Texas Chainsaw Massacre it does have bad acting, gratuitous nudity, and a splattering of gore to make it viewable as a friday night B-movie. . FYI This is ranked against other B-movies. To rank it against Hollywood blockbusters puts it at about 2 stars.
