    I've never seen Eaten Alive, this will be my first viewing of it when it comes in the mail this week. But I know for a fact that several scenes in it were lifted from another movie, Mountain of the Cannibal God. So it's not out of the question that other scenes were also "borrowed".
    I remember a buddy of mine came over for a double feature, and we chose Mountain and The Beyond. The Beyond was on laserdisc, and that disc had several trailers of other Italian grindhouse films. The long 3 minute trailers, ya know? One of them was Eaten Alive, and we saw clips that we knew were from Mountain because we'd just watched it less than 2 hours ago. Really weird seeing something like that.

    I've never noticed any footage from Mountain of the Cannibal God in Eaten Alive! but I notice the footage from Jungle Holocaust every time I watch it. Just tried to search and see what was lifted from Mountain of the Cannibal God but nothing I find gets into the specifics, it just confirms that Eaten Alive! borrowed footage from both movies.

    the shots of the monkey getting its head inside a snake's mouth is from Mountain, as is the scene when Kerman looks into the cave and the men inside start tearing into the little snakes

    Never would have noticed that first one but I always thought that the snake scene was from Jungle Holocaust, probably because I recognized the other scene from Jungle Holocaust though. I'll have to give Mountain of the Cannibal God another spin sometime soon because now that I think about it I don't remember much from it except that it was decent.

    Those caps for Violence In A Women's Prison don't look so good. Then again, Bruno Mattei movies were never known to look good anyway. I suppose Severin did their best.

    From my Cinema Arcana FB Page:

    “Hell on Earth!” Yet another Eurotrash favorite’s on the way from Severin Films later this year with their upcoming Blu-Ray of Lucio Fulci’s highly-divisive ZOMBI 3 (1988)! The film follows a viral plague that spreads through the Philippines when a mercenary team steals an experimental serum innocuously named Death One and, of course, accidentally get contaminated by it. Said compound was designed to reanimate the dead, but it comes with some unfortunate side effects – like melty faces and a taste for neck meat. Meanwhile, several G.I.s and tourists become flesh for the zombie mill when they get too close for comfort. No crummy hotel, small bush or refrigerator is safe. Beware of flying heads.

    Refreshingly stupid with its anything goes attitude and globs of grue to spare, ZOMBI 3 is hotly contested amongst fans of the director. Fulci himself was only responsible for part of the completed film; depending on the source, he either left for personal health reasons, or due to disagreements with the producers over the direction of the finished project. Regardless, Bruno Mattei stepped in to help complete the film along with scripter Claudio Fragasso, and the result is a schizo mess that doesn’t make much sense, but moves so damn fast you won’t care. No word on specs for Severin’s release yet, but I imagine it’ll best the currently available options in terms of extras and quality.

    Not that this is the only slab of prime Eurotrash Severin have on the way in 2018 – they’re also working on Fragasso’s gleefully gory ZOMBIE 4: AFTER DEATH (1989) and Mattei’s unabashed rip-off amalgam SHOCKING DARK (1989), along with Joe D’Amato’s gut-muncher ANTHROPOPHAGOUS (1980) and its pseudo-sequel, ABSURD (1981). It’s going to be a hell of a year.

    Fulci rocks. I had no idea he did the teal-tint 30 years before the Americans! I can't wait for After Death. Loves it!

    Is it weird that I just want Zombie 5: Killing Birds?

    If they release that, I'll probably just buy that blu-ray and ditch the entire Zombie Pack DVD set.

    I actually like that film too. D'Amato correct? It is a bit slow but still a good one.

    I got an e-mail announcing Zombi 4 as well (which I missed in the original announcement). Where's 5?
