Tagline: They have a never-ending hunger for human flesh!

Plot: Janet Agren stars as Sheila Morris, a young executive from a New York City corporation who is sent off to Malaysia to team up with a mercenary named Mark Butler (Kerman) to destroy a cannibalistic cult headed by a fanatic named Jonas Melvyn. Soon, Sheila and Mark are fending off hordes of flesh hungry cannibals only to discover that Jonas is behind the cannibal attack and has gone completely mad. Filled with hilarious and inane dialogue, gratuitous nudity, and footage lifted from past films like JUNGLE HOLOCAUST, EATEN ALIVE is an entertaining and often very funny movie.

When a poison-arrow wielding assassin is killed while fleeing from the police, it is discovered that he has a roll of 8mm film addressed to a recently missing person named Diana. Diana's sister Sheila soon finds that Diana has been abducted by a purification sect in New Guinea. When Sheila gets to New Guinea, she hires Mark, a soldier who has been hiding there since the Vietnam War, to guide her through the cannibal territory in her search for Diana. But with cannibals hidden deep within the emerald jungle, will she live long enough to find her beloved sister?
