This will be the film’s uncut worldwide Blu-ray premiere.
Four years after Tobe Hooper released horror film Eaten Alive, about a creepy motel owner and a man-eating crocodile, the late Umberto Lenzi unleashed his Eaten Alive.
Via Rue Morgue today, we’ve learned that the Italian cannibal flick, released in 1980, is headed to Blu-ray courtesy of Severin Films, loaded with bonus content.
“The film, which combines cannibal carnage with echoes of the Jonestown massacre, stars Robert Kerman, Janet Agren, Ivan Rassimov, Me Me Lai and Mel Ferrer, and will be presented on the disc uncut, uncensored and fully remastered in HD for the first time ever, with all-new extras.”
