MEET THE MANIAC & HIS FRIEND.

Nearly a decade before he donned Freddy Kruger’s famous red and green sweater, horror icon Robert Englund delivered a supremely sleazy performance in Eaten Alive – another essay in taut Southern terror from Tobe Hooper, director of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.

Deep in the Louisiana bayou sits the ramshackle Starlight Hotel, destination of choice for those who like to check in but not check out! Presided over by the bumbling, mumbling Judd (and his pet croc which he keeps in a large pond out front), the patron of this particular establishment may seem like a good-natured ol’ Southern gent – but he has a mean temper on him, and a mighty large scythe to boot…

Oozing atmosphere from its every pore (the entire film was shot on a sound-stage at the famous Raleigh Studios, which lends it a queasy, claustrophobic feel) Eaten Alive matches The Texas Chain Saw Massacre for sheer insanity – and even draughts in Chain Saw star Marilyn Burns as the terrorised woman-in-peril, alongside William Finley and Mel Ferrer.

Maniac and Killer Croc!

I was impressed by Tobe Hooper's movie - it was really quirky at times and also very disturbing at other times. Mostly the awesome cast helps creating a nightmarish atmosphere that looks, due to the heavy use of colored lights in this remote and few locations, almost a theater piece. The haunting soundtrack reminds of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The picture quality is great - sharp image and full colors. It's a great transfer for such a movie. The bonus features are quite nice and fit the relatively unknown movie well. Overall I would say it's a must have for fans of the slasher genre.
