The plot is pretty much what you'd expect from a horror film that involves a disturbed hotel worker who keeps an alligator for a pet...

Hooper's film, despite its apparent focus on zoology, is really an experiment in baroque Texpressionism, dominated by concerns of an anthropological, ethnographic nature.

A bizarre and largely flawed little beast, but I was pleased with the injected anarchy and direction from Hooper.

Just something that those with a morbid curiosity for the unusual in sleaze might not be able to pass on.

[Its] off-the-wall hybridization of Tennessee Williams, Alfred Hitchcock (Psycho, specifically), and Lucio Fulci is more often than not sloppy.

With an enviable, well-stocked cast of character thespians and a carefully dilapidated motel set, Eaten Alive is all ingredients, no recipe.

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.

The movie is called Eaten Alive, but we get very little in terms of dinner and dessert in the horror department.

One is tempted to wonder aloud if drugs and booze didn't actually direct this relatively woeful flick.

will always be more of a curiosity piece than a truly satisfying movie in and of itself

Hooper's sophomore effort, which had a bigger budget but is lesser-known, repeats the same basic formula.
