One of the less gruesome cannibal tales. A woman is searching for her missing sister and she finds hope in the folly of a dead hit-man who has a film on him. The film shows some sadistic torture and a brief cameo by her sister taken by a documentary film crew who obviously didn't make it out. She then leaves for the jungle joined by cannibal film regular Robert Kerman (playing Mark Butler), where they meet up with the standard Cannibal tribe and a Jim Jones like cult leader. Of course escape is next to impossible with the always-hungry cannibals waiting them out and the crazy followers of the suicide cult leader ready to eat them on command. Written by

The antagonist character of Jonas, and his commune and of the climatic mass suicide, was inspired by the Jim Jones People's Temple cult in Guyana who committed mass suicide in November 1978 resulting in the deaths of over 900 people. See more »

I wasnt expecting much when I put this in the VCR, and I definatly didnt _GET_ much either, but it certainly wasnt as bad as everyone says. Actually its rather humorous in a cheesy sort of way, and lenzi does manage to put in some decent atmosphere. The script is basically an excuse to re-use footage from other films though, and it doesnt make much sense anyways. Overall its still better than Slave of the Cannibal God and less boring than Cannibal Ferox. If you enjoyed Trap Them & Kill Them (Emanuelle & The Last Cannibals) you probably would enjoy Eaten Alive!
