Cannibal! The Musical
This is an amiable little parody from director Trey Parker, best known as co-creator of the cult TV series South Park. Set in 1873, the film deals with Alfred Packer (Juan Schwartz, aka Trey Parker), who is accused of cannibalizing members of his six-man party on a trip West. There are comic songs, Japanese people pretending to be Indians, and a cyclops whose eye spurts pus. The film's highlight may be Alfred's saloon kung fu fight with a cocky fur trapper named Frenchy over his beloved horse Liane. Cannibal! is surprisingly light on gore for a Troma Team release (save for the prologue and finale), concentrating instead on goofy sight gags, sex jokes, and silly songs like "Shpadoinkle" and "Hang the Bastard." The cinematography is attractive, evoking all those frontier musicals of yore, and the overall quality is good, if obviously low budget. This film also features a cameo by underground film maven Stan Brakhage as the father of one of the pioneers. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi

    If you are a fan of South Park or the musical, "The Book of Mormon" this is a great movie from early on in the creators' career. It's great to see that their sense of humor has remained mostly unchanged and their manner of story-telling is just as random and fantastic as it has been from the beginning.

    What you expect


    This movie is what you expect of Matt Stone and T. Parker. It is thier first attempt at a full lenght feature and was filmed on a low budget. Many of the actors seen in the more recent films from the two are introduced in this film.

    The director's commentary audio track is worth the price of the disc alone!
