Eaten Alive (1980)



Another one from the vault of politically incorrect over the top exploitation flicks from the late 70s/early 80's.

Basically this one follows the story of a wealthy cotton farm heiress investigating the disappearance of her older sister suspecting that she may have become involved in a strange religious cult in jungles of Asia. She then heads off to find her sister in a jungle settlement run by cult leader Jonas, which is of course surrounded by cannibals and dangerous animals.

The usual assortment of gore, animal killings, ritual sacrifice, nudity and cannibalism make this a pretty entertaining watch, but something falls short (I'm not sure what maybe just attetntion to detail... as it looks like the natives are south american NOT Asian) , though shot in the same grizzly reality style,  it does not have quite the same genre classic feel as Cannibal Holocaust This will pretty much appeal to anyone  who liked that film. Probably not quite at the same level of extremity but not far off either, it holds it own in terms of gore thats for sure.  Either way its a solid watch and defs worth the time to watch it
