CINE-WEEN 2023: In Defense of EATEN ALIVE

Tobe Hooper gets a bad rap as a director. Sure, he gets credit for THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE and, if you’re the right sort of horror fan, TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2, but beyond that his filmography is often glossed over, ignored, or credited to other collaborators.
