Summary Notes

1943, The war is entering its final stages and Germany is teetering on the brink of defeat. An increasingly unhinged Hitler, orders a mission to have British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill kidnapped and brought to Germany. The plan seems ludicrous in the extreme, but a message sent from a German spy in the Norfolk countryside makes one German officer realize that such a mission may just feasible.

15 certUK: The Extended Version was passed 15 uncut for:

From IMDb. The additional scenes are:

  • Different pre-title sequence with Himmler arriving at the castle seen in the opening credits. Himmler, Canaris and Hitler exit a meeting, where Himmler suggests the feasibility study of the Churchill kidnap plot to Canaris. This runs into the title sequence.
  • After the scene between Radl and Canaris, Radl goes to his own office to find his doctor waiting for him. A conversation follows which suggests that Radl is terminally ill.
  • Extension of the scene between Devlin and Joanna Grey where she gives him money for the trucks, warns him about stolen petrol and they toast the success of the mission. This is followed by Devlin riding through the village on his motorcycle, across the marsh, arriving at his cottage and looking around. This runs into the scene of Devlin arriving at the village pub.
  • After the scene in the dunes between Devlin and Molly Prior, there is a scene between Steiner and Von Neustadt at the airfield where they discuss their chances of success.
  • That scene runs into Devlin arriving at his cottage. He is joined by Molly Prior. They talk and Devlin reads poetry to her.
  • After Devlin takes delivery of the trucks, he re-enters the cottage to find Molly there. She confronts him, mistakenly thinking he is a black marketeer. These two scenes make more sense of her later declaration of love for Devlin to Arthur Seymour.
  • Directly after Himmler rips up Radl's letter, there is a short scene with Father Verecker reading a newspaper in the vestry of the church. He is surprised by Laker Armsby who enters via the tunnel (used by Devlin and Steiner later). This basically explains where it comes and goes to.

Summary Notes

A motley group of Asian prisoners held in the US are given one chance for freedom. They are to go deep into Vietnam and destroy a secret depot of missles that the US left behind during the pull-out. The group, led by Lt. Lam and convict Tung, hook up with a trio of female freedom fighters and a happy go lucky martial artist named 'Rat'. The entire group is captured by the VC because one of them is a double agent, but they escape, cross an un-crossable bridge, and get to the secret base just ahead of the VC. By this point nearly all of the original group is dead, and it's up to Tung and Rat to fight the VC's leader, a bizarre giggling man who's lightning fast with martial arts.

  • Mangiati vivi dai cannibali
Eaten Alive is a 1980 Italian Cannibal film by Umberto Lenzi.
With Robert Kerman, Janet Agren and Ivan Rassimov. YouTube icon IMDb
The BBFC have made extensive cuts to all UK releases. Uncut and MPAA Unrated in the US.
Summary Review: Pure Italian sleaze
Eaten Alive is one of the sicker entries in the much beloved cannibal genre. Mangiati Vivi follows the exploits of one Sheila Morris (Janet Agren) as she attempts to find out what happened to her sister Diana (Paola Senatore). She is put in touch with American expatriate Mark (Robert Kerman), a guy who will help find Diana Morris for the right price.

What follows is pure Italian sleaze as Mark and Sheila tramp through the jungle. They finally stumble into Jonas's purification village. Then the film gets nasty. There's also a tribe of dangerous cannibals nearby, a tribe that nearly finished off Mark and Sheila on their journey into the village.

Lenzi throws out a bit of everything, not only recreating the Jim Jones massacre on a small scale, but also subjecting us to cannibal atrocities. The final scenes, with Diana Morris and cannibal film regular Me Me Lai falling prey to the cannibals, ranks right up there with anything you see in Deodato's Cannibal Holocaust. This stuff is so deeply disturbing and shockingly realistic, at least in certain parts, that one boggles over how something like this ever got made.
