Eaten Alive (Tobe Hooper, 1976)
PRESENTED OUTDOORS IN DRIVE-IN WIDESCREAM: blankets and bicycles encouraged!
Tobe Hooper's highly anticipated, yet suspicously buried follow up to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The story of a hotel keeper, suffering from a bad case of social alientation and genreal psychosis mames his guests with farming equipment not before dumping their half dead bodies into the bayou, home of his angry pet gator. Although not complemented by the luscious cinematography that marked his genre defining film of a few years earlier, Eaten Alive features the camp humour and slasher sensibilities one would expect from a Hooper film from the 70s. Starring the original scream queen Marlyn Burns (of Texas Chainsaw Massacre fame) and a very teenaged Robert Englund (Freddie Kruger) who occupies the questionable role of horny bar stud. One of the finest Drive-In flicks from the 70s you've probably never seen. running time: 89 minutes
