"Trey Stone and Matt Parker\.Matt Stone and Trey Parker"
South Park's Trey Parker was the writer, star and director of this musical parody of the "Alferd Packer: THE HUMAN CANNIBAL" legend. This guy didn't do it for thrills or lure of a swanky three-picture deal....He did it for love.Cannibal! The Musical is a feature that Trey Parker made while in college. After several rejections from major studios, the movie fell into the hands of Troma, a studio best known for its Toxic Avenger series. Lloyd Kaufman had already done a lot of cinematic slop before Toxie, but we'll get to that at a later date.
Back to the story...
Alferd is minding his own beeswax when a pack of those evil sons-of-bitches that we all hate comes into the picture. Trappers. Slimy, scheming trappers.
The REAL problem, which still looms today, is with the violent trappers. One of these trappers covets Alferd's one true love. His angel. His...uhhh...his horse.
The story is retold by a timid Packer (Trey Parker) from his jail cell as he awaits execution. He builds a wooden house inside his cell. He loves a horse in a most unnatural way, yet love blooms between Packer and a HUMAN reporter. How could this man be a killer?
If you go away with anything from this film it will be a bunch of wacko songs stuck in your head. “Let’s Build a Snowman”, “Schpidoinkle Day” and “Lets Hang the Bastard” are among the many highlights.
A great college film by a great creator. Trey Parker is much more talented than a lot of people give him credit for. If you want to see the roots of South Park, look no further.In all seriousness, evidence has been found to support the story that Alferd offered all along. Ballistics confirmed that he did indeed shoot the “last survivor” (who supposedly killed the rest of the party). I’m betting that real men couldn’t give a shit one way or the other. He died like a hundred years ago. May he rest in peace and/or be ripped apart by hungry jackals for all eternity if he did do it. Fuck it. I have a burrito in the microwave.
