Eaten Alive is an American independent horror film directed by Tobe Hooper. Produced by Mohammed, Mardi and Samir Rustam of the Mars Productions Corporation, it was released theatrically in the United States in May of 1977. The film stars Neville Brand as Judd, the proprietor of a sleazy motel in the swamps of Elmendorf, Louisiana. When a distraught prostitute comes to his establishment, Judd decides that she is of questionable virtue and murders her with a scythe, before feeding her to his pet crocodile. This begets a chain of events as Judd's psychosis grows to a fever pitch and the bodies begin to pile up.
