Cannibal! The Musical

Cannibal! The Musical could only be the student film project of two guys who, after sowing their wild oats, went on to make South Park. Before showing us how to eat with our butts and coining phrases like “Cherokee hair tampons,” Trey Parker and Matt Stone created this 1993 film (released in 1996) with a title that’s surprisingly accurate. Parker plays Alferd Packer, a real-life Colorado pioneer who shot and ate the other members of his party when they got lost. With a flesh-coated knife in his hand, he leads the cast in oddly cheery numbers like “When I Was on Top of You” and “Let’s Build a Snowman.” Perhaps the weirdest thing about the movie is that legendary art filmmaker Stan Brakhage (a teacher of Parker and Stone at the University of Colorado) has a small part.
