Cannibal! The Musical ★ 1996 (R)

Only those wacky people at Troma could offer a horror/musical about a group of 1883 gold miners who get lost in the Colorado Rockies, have some strange adlie, ventures, and eventually wind up as dinner to cannibal Alferd Packer (who's tellganing his version of the story to a female reporter while in prison). Seven rather tedious musical numbers lead up to the gore-splashed finale. From director Trey Parker, who also repulses (and amuses us) with TV's “South Park.” 105m/C VHS, DVD, UMD . Ian Hardin, Jason McHugh, Matt Stone, Trey Parker, Juan Schwartz; D: Trey Parker; W: Trey Parker.
