Alfred Packer was a mountain guide and sole survivor of a party of pioneers that got lost in the mountains in winter. Accused and convicted of murdering and eating his travelling companions, he was to be executed by hanging.The movie begins at his trial, where he pleads his innocence to an unsympathetic audience. Only reporter Polly Pry will listen to his story, which is then related to the viewers in the form of flashbacks. As Packer and his gold-prospecting clients make their way through the forests and mountains, they encounter bemused Japanese Indians, an unimpressed group of mountain men and the brutal Rocky Mountain winter, all of which inspire the travellers to break out into song and dance.

As the Nihonjin "Indians" walk away with the group at sword point, one of them is heard saying in Japanese (loosely translated), "This movie is really stupid!" See more »
Right before Packer and the others meet the trappers for the first time, you can clearly see that Leanne is tied up. She is also clearly tied up during the "That's All I'm Asking For!" song. Right after she ran away, Noon asks Packer if she was tied up and Packer replies that he never ties her up. See more »
The film you are about to see was originally released in 1954. Upstaged by the overwhelming popularity of "Oklahoma!", it's short lived theater run was canceled, and "Alfred Packer: The Musical" soon fell into obscurity. The original negative, re-discovered just last year, has been painstakingly restored using state-of-the-art color enhancing and computer reconstruction technology. The film's violent scenes have been edited out for your viewing pleasure.

(At the end of the closing credits) Due to the graphic nature of this film, it should not have been watched by small children. See more »
I enjoyed CANNIBAL because I didn't look at it as Trey Parker and Matt Stone's first collaboration. I looked at it as a Troma Film. And as a Troma Film, it's pretty damn good. It has some relatively good cinematography, and some truly wonderful songs sung mostly by terrible, terrible singers (Parker and Toddy Walters are the only ones who can actually sing). The film does, admittedly, drag a bit in parts, and none of the polish and satirical edge that Stone and Parker have showed on their later films manage to work it's way into the script. Just remember that they did this while still in college, and for a group of penniless film students this isn't so bad.
