I hate to disagree with OZ, but I am a huge Trey Parker fan and I would love anything this man touched. This is his first feature film and it has some flaws, but it still kicks ass. It may not be as good as BASEketball or South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, but it's better than Orgazmo.First off, I love cannibals. The thought of someone craving human flesh fascinates me for some reason. Then you cross that with a Rogers & Hammerstein musical and you've got this movie. It was made while Trey Parker and Matt Stone were in college for $125,000 and Trey Parker was kicked out in the process because he spent all his time on this movie and neglected his studies.
This movie brought back the musical comedy, even though nobody saw it at the time of release. The movie has been available since it was released about 4 years ago or so by Troma, but just recently it was re-released and put on DVD and priced to own on video. I bought a previously viewed copy of it for $40 a couple years ago after I saw BASEketball and Orgazmo.
The plot of the movie is the true story of Alferd Packer, the only man ever convicted of cannibalism in the United States. He is a cult hero in Colorado, from what I gather. It presents Alferd Packer's side of the story, maintaining that he is innocent and it mixes the story with humorous musical numbers and gross out humor.
The production value isn't the best, since it's a period piece and made with a low budget. Most of the costumes aren't very convincing, but... just look past that.Just give it a chance!
