Robert Englund performs a particularly obnoxious fellow named Buck, who has a really humorous line initially of the movie. When he is speaking to the unlucky prostitute Clara Wooden performed by Roberta Collins. He says to her, “I am Buck and I am able to f**ok,” to Clara the aspiring prostitute.
Buck tries to have anal intercourse with Clara, however she refuses and fights him off. She then will get kicked out of the Brothel by the Madam, Miss Hattie, performed by Carolyn Jones (Morticia on the previous television series-The Addams Household).
Clara makes her option to the run down lodge and meets the native city weirdo, Judd (Neville Model) who for some purpose not defined within the Eaten Alive movie doesn’t like Prostitutes. In realizing she’s one, he goes right into a violent rant. Judd kills Clara by stabbing her a number of occasions along with his pitchfork and feeds her to his pet Nile Crocodile.
Quickly afterwards a pair which were arguing with one another, Faye (Marilyn Burns) and the disturbed Roy (William Finley) arrive at Judd’s crappy lodge surrounded by a swamp together with their younger daughter Angie (Kyle Richards).
I actually hate this a part of the Eaten Alive film, as a result of after their daughter’s canine is eaten by Judd’s crocodile, Angie the younger daughter virtually ruins the movie together with her extraordinarily annoying crying. The couple takes Angie into the room they checked into on the lodge and attempt to calm her down. The couple resumes arguing with one another.
Eaten Alive cuts to the scene with Harvey Wooden performed by Mel Ferrer and his daughter Libby looking for info on the whereabouts of his different daughter, the now deceased Clara. Judd would not provide them any info on the whereabouts of Clara so that they go away his lodge.
Harvey and Libby make their option to the brothel to see if Clara is there. In the meantime, again on the lodge Roy decides to shoot the crocodile and is then promptly stabbed a number of occasions by Judd along with his Scythe and fed to his Crocodile.
Faye places Angie to sleep after which goes to take a shower. She is then crushed up and sure to the mattress by Judd. Little Angie flee’s from Judd and hides beneath the lodge. Harvey Wooden and his daughter Libby together with Sheriff Martin (Stuart Whitman) head again to Miss Hattie’s Brothel and asks her about Clara. Madam Hattie denies ever seeing Clara.
Libby go away’s her father Harvey and heads to the native scorching spot, the bar with Sheriff Martin. Harvey then will get killed by Judd when he returns to the lodge after listening to Angie’s crying. He’s then eaten by Judd’s crocodile, whereas Sheriff Martin and Libby are on the native bar.
Buck “The Alpha Male” can also be there along with his girlfriend and is bullying another guys. Buck is confronted and kicked out by Sheriff Martin. Buck and his trashy girlfriend go to Judd’s lodge. Buck was already warned to not come again there earlier within the movie by Judd. Judd would not like Buck for unexplained causes.
Whereas Buck is in his room along with his girlfriend he hears some crying from close by. Buck goes to research and is attacked by Judd. He’s pushed into the swamp and eaten by the Crocodile. Libby arrives again to the lodge and discovers Faye tied up. She unties Faye from the mattress. Judd opens up the gate to the swamp to permit his crocodile free entry to eat the younger woman Angie. Faye and Libby try to go away.
Judd chases after them and wounds Faye along with his Scythe. Libby escapes and helps Angie get free and out of the swamp. He struggles to get at Libby and Angie who’re on prime of the fence that makes up the crocodiles swamp cage enclosure. Judd falls over on the crocodile’s facet of the cage and is eaten by his Crocodile. The Sheriff arrives and the film ends with some extra of Angie’s horrible annoying crying. Judd’s synthetic leg pops up on prime of the bloody water.
Total I believed this movie was very entertaining. I really feel it ought to have garnered the identical respect that Tobe Hooper’s earlier movie, The Texas Chainsaw Bloodbath obtained. Neville Model was a riot as Judd. I really like the weird and humorous facial expressions he makes all through Eaten Alive.
Neville Model is a superb character actor and with the Eaten Alive movie he’s very plausible as an area city loon. The scene the place he’s sitting on the mattress and slurringly singing a tune with these lyrics, “Ain’t bought no ticket, ain’t bought no bag”. Easy scenes resembling these and when he’s speaking/ranting to himself are highlights of him within the Eaten Alive film.
I additionally like his stunned reactions when individuals ask him one thing, “Oh! Oh!”, he responds with. He makes the Eaten Alive movie campy and entertaining along with his nice capability to get into the character.
Neville Model seems so misplaced in his personal world and loopy in these scenes and all through the Eaten Alive movie. Robert Englund could be very memorable on this movie and you’ll see the uncooked expertise he had again then as he would quickly turn into a Horror and B-Film icon.
I do not acknowledge the actress Roberta Collins who performed Clara, however she certain did a wonderful job showing genuinely scared and looking out very uncomfortable earlier than her character was killed by Judd.
I personal the 2-Disc Particular Version of Eaten Alive, it’s restored and remastered considerably. The Eaten Alive movie is so grainy and the filming course of so primitive it comes out on display screen being very darkish and with out some element.
Because of these harsh situations Eaten Alive was filmed underneath, I doubt it will look a lot better on Blu-ray, at any time when they launch it in that format. The second disc has a number of options, together with interviews with Robert Englund, director Tobe Hooper, and Mariyln Burns discussing their expertise filming Eaten Alive.
