Eaten Alive (known under various pseudonyms in alternate regions, adopting such titles as Death Trap (UK), Horror Hotel, Horror Hotel Massacre , Legend of the Bayou, Murder on the Bayou, Le crocodile de la mort (France) and Starlight Slaughter) is a 1977 horror film directed by Tobe Hooper, featuring Robert Englund, Neville Brand and William Finley. After refusing a request from Buck (Robert Englund), a frisky customer, a prostitute is dismissed from her job at the town brothel. She then makes her way to a run-down hotel where she encounters Judd (Neville Brand), the mentally disturbed proprietor and his pet crocodile. Upon discovering his new lodger is a woman of questionable virtue, Judd attacks. He begins tearing at her blouse while ranting and raving, causing her to run outside, where Judd savagely finishes her off with a scythe. However, once she is dead, Judd looks shocked by what he has done. But it is already too late. Judd's crocodile greedily eats the body, then turns on Judd and eats him too.
