Eaten Alive (1980) aka Mangiati Vivi!

3 / 5
Tagline: They Didn't Have A Chance!

Well I really did expect more from this one seeing as how Lenzi usually makes such absurdly entertaining films that are underrated, this isn't one of those times. In fact this is more of a softcore porn about a sister looking for her sister in the jungle. Oddly her sister has joined some Jonestown like cult, and she and her tour guide get wound up in the shmozzle. See cannibals are lurking everywhere and simply leaving the cult doesn't really happen. There are tons of breasts, some rape and well it's all very unnecessary and silly. There is some gore, but it's not the most exciting red I've seen either. I guess in the grand scheme of things this is one of the worst of the cannibal films that I've seen, yet somehow I sat through it and I wasn't too bored, I just expected something a little more colorful from Lenzi.
