A snake researcher attempts to capture an anaconda in Peru.
Hooper's film, despite its apparent focus on zoology, is really an experiment in baroque Texpressionism, dominated by concerns of an anthropological, ethnographic nature.
[Its] off-the-wall hybridization of Tennessee Williams, Alfred Hitchcock (Psycho, specifically), and Lucio Fulci is more often than not sloppy.
The movie is called Eaten Alive, but we get very little in terms of dinner and dessert in the horror department.
A bizarre and largely flawed little beast, but I was pleased with the injected anarchy and direction from Hooper.
With an enviable, well-stocked cast of character thespians and a carefully dilapidated motel set, Eaten Alive is all ingredients, no recipe.
One is tempted to wonder aloud if drugs and booze didn't actually direct this relatively woeful flick.
Just something that those with a morbid curiosity for the unusual in sleaze might not be able to pass on.
This bayou-set, thinly imagined Psycho knock-off is little more than a derisible piece of slasher mayhem, notable for Tobe Hooper's association and costar Roberta Collins' assertion that star Neville Brand later tried to sexually assault her.
Above average horror from Hooper with a satiric bent
