Alferd Packer was the only man in the United States ever convicted of cannibalism--what better hero for fellow Coloradan and future South Park creator Trey Parker to celebrate in music? Blue-eyed and boyish Parker was still in college when he wrote, directed, composed the songs for and took the starring role as the innocent young Packer in this film, giving a gee-whiz performance as an ambitious pioneer who joins an ill-fated trek west that ends up stranded in the mountains. At times resembling a perverse community theatre parody of Rodgers and Hammerstein ("My heart's as full as a baked po-ta-to!"), Parker bounces back and forth between cheery production numbers and goony songs ("Let's build a snowman", sings one starving-mad hiker) and grotesque gore (bloody body parts, festering sores, human hors d'oeuvres). It lacks in style and consistency and the juvenile gags and fart jokes wear thin over the course of a feature film, but Parker's sheer energy and inventiveness carry the overlong picture to a rousing conclusion. Regular Parker collaborators Matt Stone and Dian Bachar co-star in this tuneful barbecue. --Sean Axmaker

4.0 out of 5 stars GOOD FOOD. GOOD MUSIC. 10 Aug 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Here it is, South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone bring you their debut feature Cannibal:The musical. An excellent, hilarious, often gobsmacking musical originally released by the wonderful Troma team. The musical numbers are stunning, you won't resist singing along. The gore is extreme, you will literally be sitting there wondering if it was from the same movie and the set pieces and costumes are great, considering it's miniscule budget. So just watch and enjoy. Shpadoinkle!

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this film! 14 Aug 2005
If you love Matt Stone and Trey Parker then you should have this already in your collection along with all their other work! People always seem unsure when I tell them the title but its not disgusting all the way through and the gory bits are so comedy! Definitely one of my favourite films!

5.0 out of 5 stars And I quote: "Fudge, Packer?" 15 Nov 2003
By Mlle J. Taylor VINE VOICE
Format:VHS Tape
OMG! Forget Evil Dead, Cannibal the Musical has become one of my favourite movies ever! I have to admit, I'm having a bit of a Trey Parker faze at the moment, but you'll understand why when you watch this film.
Cannibal! is Parker and Stone's first full length movie and was filmed while they were still at univresity (Parker, in fact, got kicked out for this as he was spending too much time making the movie and not enough studying!) It was made after the pair made a short "trailer" in their film making class for the movie and a few friends liked the idea so much they pressured the pair to actually make the full movie.
Parker wrote all the songs himself, as with the South Park movie, so you can tell it'll be amazing! From "On Top Of You", a beautiful, melancolic ballard to his horse, to the hilarious "Let's Make a Snowman", I guarantee you will be singing hooks from various songs for a while. I drove my friends crazy with the chorus of "On Top Of You" for a good three weeks.
The movie is hilarious slapstick and true Parker/Stone at it's best. Give it a go. You will love it, I promise!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful dark comedy musical 23 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I'm not especially a fan of South Park, but this film had me chuckling for days: a spot-on pastiche of feelgood Oklahama-style musicals, with genuinely catchy songs; a strange combination of an innocently juvenile style combined with gross-out horror special effects; and various anachronisms and bizarre elements such as the tribe of Japanese Indians...

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius! 11 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This film is probrably my all time favourite. Not only is it funny, but the characters are thorougly endearing and I seriously really loved the songs! I wasn't really a South Park fan until I stumbled across this film when Channel 4 showed it a while back, and then I appreciated the humour and talent of Trey Parker. I recommend this film!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Full as a baked potato?" 8 Oct 2007
By Matt
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When Trey Parker made Cannibal the Musical, he was still a student. However, the film has developed a loyal and vocal fan-base who see past it's flaws and self-indulgence whilst other people just seem puzzled by the whole thing. The subject matter, a musical based around the real life cannibalism trial of 19th century US prospector Alferd Packer, doesn't really help there.

Trey Parker, along with college buddy Matt Stone who is also present here, went on to become the creators of South Park and movies such as Orgazmo and Team America. The film's popularity grew with the pair's profile which is partly why it enjoys the cult status it does today. The actual quality of the product is good for the youth and inexperience of its creators, and creatively there's a consistency here and the uniqueness of the product makes it rather special. The music is very well written and the tunes surprisingly catchy, and the general air of silliness is endearing rather than annoying thanks. There's a lot of glimpses of the partnership that would spawn one of the longest-running animated sitcoms of all time, and there's loads to enjoy in this film. There are those who cannot see past its flaws, but if you're a fan of the humour (and music!) of Parker and Stone, you'll love this film. For others, if you're not attracted by the absurdity of the concept, it's probably not for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Hilarious 14 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I saw this film on channel 4 a while back and i rented it out a week ago and all the classic jokes came flooding back, as well as the classic songs (such as "hang the b*stard!" and "Spadoinkle day!") brilliant. If you like toilet humour, then you cant get better than this
