Meet The Maniac & His Freinds. Nearly a decade before he donned Freddy Krueger'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.

Tobe Hooper directs this horror starring Neville Brand, Roberta Collins and Robert Englund. Left with nowhere to go after being forced out of the town brothel, young prostitute Clara (Collins) stumbles across the rundown Starlight Hotel situated deep in the remote Texas swampland. The hotel is owned by the deranged Judd (Brand) who quickly attacks Clara and chases her into the swamp where she is eaten by Judd's pet crocodile. With Clara's sudden disappearance sparking suspicion in the town, more and more people venture to the hotel only to find themselves facing a battle to get out alive.
