Product Overview

Long considered the "lost Tobe Hooper film," Eaten Alive is also known as Brutes and Savages, Death Trap, Horror Hotel, Horror Hotel Massacre, Legend of the Bayou, Murder on the Bayou and Starlight Slaughter.

If you are a fan of Tobe Hooper's classic film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, then you are in for a treat. This was Hooper's follow-up film to Chainsaw. In fact, it features the same damsel-in-distress, Marilyn Burns, and was co-written by Chainsaw collaborator Kim Henkel.

An Academy of Science Fiction and Horror nominee, Eaten Alive is a very disturbing movie and features some of the most truly horrific scenes ever filmed. Judd (Neville Brand) is the owner of a dilapidated motel buried deep in the bayou, that caters to strangers passing through. Unfortunately, for the guests, he also caters to his pet alligator's veracious appetite. Eaten Alive also features a very early performance by Robert Englund (A Nightmare on Elm Street's Freddy Krueger)!

ReviewSource SciFilm Review
Review of Tobe Hooper's best films, hovering around there with TCM2 and Salem's Lot. It isn't as unrelenting as TCSM, but it does have a lot of moments that match it. Interestingly the BFI Companion to Horror describes Eaten Alive / Death Trap as an "EC Comic-type" film. I actually hadn't considered that before, but it may be a good description. I can picture William Gaines or Jack Davis or Graham Ingels illustrating this one and giving us one heck of a ride. All in all, despite a few flaws, Eaten Alive is Tobe Hooper when he was still baring his teeth, and with that and the one-two-three combo of Brand and Finley chewing the scenery and Burns in hysteria-mode, it's definitely worth a viewing or two.

Neil Messenger, DVD Cult ...Hooper bought his skills to the table and even had a hand in composing the Pyscho-esque score.
