Did You Know?

The trial scenes were filmed in the same courtroom in which Alferd Packer was tried in Lake City, Colorado.See more »
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): During the argument about musical keys, Frenchy says "The relative minor is three half tones down from the major, not up!" The scripted line was supposed to be, "The relative minor is three half tones up from the major, not down." Thus establishing his further knowledge (or lack thereof) of music theory.See more »

Title Card: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.

from Fringe Video Fanzine Issue #001, 13 May 2001
Author: fringevideo ( from Peterborough, Ontario

Rejected by every distribution company on the planet, this is a pre South-Park horror / musical, written and directed by Trey Parker. Who else would release a film so stupid, but Lloyd Kaufman, and Michael Herz, and the offbeat Troma Team Studios. This release is adapted from a University of Colorado stage production, and is ultimately very silly and cheap film camp in the Monty Python comedy vein. The subject is Alferd Paker (Juan Schwartz) who while searching for gold and love in the Colorado Territory, he and his companions lost their way and resorted to ...unthinkable horrors, including toe-tapping songs. Alferd Paker was convicted of cannibalism, and shortly after his arrest he tells his tale. In jail, with musical and gory splatter flashbacks, he re-tells the story to a news reporter of how he came to eat his friends. The local townspeople in a big production number sing 'Hang The B****rd' outside his cell window. While the film is low in entertainment, the songs are very addictive, and will have you singing right along. Troma Team DVD's are very enjoyable endeavors in exploitation barker showmanship, and feature interactive items such as: Troma Intelligence tests, and tours of troma studios.
