Genre regular Cameron Mitchell (The Toolbox Murders, From a Whisper to a Scream) stars in this thrilling tale of escaped hoodlums and underground-dwelling cannibals from director Leszek Burzynski and Hellraiser producer Christopher Webster.

One wintry night, pals Robin and Monica are making their way to a Christmas party when they re carjacked by a gang of crooks recently escaped from the local penitentiary. With the two young women taken as hostages, things take an even darker turn when their vehicle plummets down an abandoned mine shaft, trapping them underground with the dangerous crooks - and a mutant cannibal.

Filmed in 1988 under the title of Forever Mine but not released until 1993, Trapped Alive was the first film to come out of Wisconsin s now-defunct Windsor Lake Studios, which would go on to produce a number of films under the Fangoria Films label in the early-90s, including 1992 s Bruce Campbell-starring Mindwarp.

A rot-faced cannibal red-neck mutant rampaging 80ds slasher schlock-fest!

A good few years before X-Factor, no doubt a few goodly years after Max Factor, and, quite possibly at the very same time as the Krypton Factor, neophyte horror director Leszek Burzynski was perhaps considering making 'Trapped Alive’', and, I, for one, am jolly glad that he did; because, quite frankly, if he didn't, this devilishly diverting, dirty minded horror film would have remained a mere figment, and with all the good will I can muster, any figment, no matter how well intentioned will ever play on my Sony region 2 Blu-ray player! (That said, should you be an avid fan of figments, I certainly meant no offence) 1993 was never to be a landmark year for home-spun horror, while in faraway Poland they rightfully celebrated the discovery of a far more effective rennet for their deliciously slender cheeses, yet in filmdom the halcyon era of the hysterical slasher was heading inexorably towards extinction, and for this tumescent reason alone it might be long overdue to objectively reappraise the not-exactly mighty, but still fragrantly satisfying subterranean, skin-flaying chiller ‘Trapped Alive’. It is a joyful incongruity indeed to finally experience Leszek Burzynski’s previously buried underground shocker in this new, glisteringly gussied up Blu-ray presentation. Is it worth the wait? Well, that entirely depends on how fully functioning one's guileless horror gland is, fortunately mine remains an uncommonly virile organ, thrustingly appreciative of any lovingly reclaimed, long-forgotten historically hysterical horror opus from the gory days when film meant just that, film. Like any form of art, good, bad or indifferently made, its perceived beauty lies wholly in that of the perversely inclined peepers of said B-Movie beholder, but for those stalwart individuals who can find uncommon pleasure in the likes of Buddy Cooper’s majestically mutilating ‘The Mutilator’ or Richard Friedman’s mercurially ambitious, freak-filled scare-a-thon 'Scared Stiff' should enthusiastically embrace independent film-maker Burzynski’s creepily claustrophobic, mineshaft-trapping, Cameron Mitchell-starring, rot-faced cannibal red-neck mutant rampaging shocker with all the terrible tenacity usually reserved of an especially unwelcome Prison Yard coupling. 'Trapped Alive' aka 'Trapped', like Mapplethorpe’s intimate photography, or that second generous serving of Blow fish Sushi, isn't going to be everybody's fulsome chalice of frothing grume, but for those with lead-lined stomachs and a more refined sense of the absurd may well ‘unearth’ much to amuse themselves with here. This is a rough-handed rarity you can laugh 'with' or 'at', ambidextrously amusing, and that fact alone raises it far above the mirthless mire of plagiarized grindhouse grot clogging cinema's sinless sewer of today.
