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!!!

EATEN ALIVE Not my favourite Tobe Hooper film but still enjoyable to watch lots of suspense & Horror
brilliantly written script by Kim Henkel who co-wrote the Texas chainsaw massacre
and of course Great Directing by Tobe Hooper himself
an interesting little Horror film which was filmed on a soundstage actually in Hollywood California, not on Location
the main story is about a mental propertier who owns a Hotel & feeds his Guests to his pet Crocodile/Aligator
not before knocking them out first
i prefer TCM than this story, as i said still enjoyable to watch
first released on DVD by Dark sky films about 10 years ago now.
U.K.'s Arrow films have taken over and released the film on blu-ray with a new 2k HD restoration approved by Tobe Hooper
Arrow films made the effort big time giving this film a new HD transfer making the region A & B for U.S.

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.
