MEET THE MANIAC & HIS FRIEND.
Almost a years before he wore Freddy Kruger's well-known red and green sweater, horror icon Robert Englund delivered a very sleazy efficiency 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, location of option for those who want to examine 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 client of this particular facility might seem like a good-natured ol' Southern gent - but he has a mean mood on him, and a magnificent big scythe to boot ...
Oozing environment from its every pore (the entire film was shot on a sound-stage at the well-known Raleigh Studios, which lends it a queasy, claustrophobic feel) Eaten Alive matches The Texas Chain Saw Massacre for large insanity - as well as drafts in Chain Saw star Marilyn Burns as the terrorised woman-in-peril, along with William Finley and Mel Ferrer.
