Format: DVD
The movie itself is a great bit of inspired gross lunacy that you'd probably expect from the South Park team (Parker and Stone). It's a homage to the old Hollywood movie musicals like Oklahoma, but it's about a true story of cannibalism in Colorado Territory before it became a state. You wil not be disappointed: the movie is a hoot, and the songs are terrifyingly catchy.
But the DVD special features are extraordinary, and the director's commentary audio track is worth the price of the disc alone. Parker gets together with Stone and many other stars of the movie, they announce their intention to drink heavily during their commentary, and proceed to do just that. A constant stream of hilarious behind-the-scenes anecdotes, the complete low-down on Lianne (the girl who broke Parker's heart and inspired a lot of the movie's content), and a lot of jovial abuse of the movie itself (they cheerfully admit they were 22 and didn't know what they were doing half the time). The banter among the commentators is lightning fast, uniformly profane, and unbelievably funny. I wanted to split a bottle of whiskey with these guys before I heard the director's commentary, and now I have to at least once before I die. The cast and Troma should be proud: this is what all DVDs with Special Features should aspire to.
I can only hope that Parker stages a similar event for the as-yet-unavailable Orgazmo disc (when, Trey, when?).

If you have never sat all the way through a Troma film or have never found anything about "South Park" to be funny, then do not bother to watch "Cannibal! The Musical," because you are not going to enjoy it. Matt Stone is around in 1993 when this film was made (but not released to mass consumption until 1996), but Trey Parker gets the primary credit for not only writing the script and songs, but also directing and starring as Alfred Packer (and the Cow Bell Guy).

In 1873 Packer and five prospectors were snowbound, lost and hungry in the San Juans of Colorado. Only Packer returned alive and when the other bodies were discovered it was clear they had been eaten. Parker was eventually convicted of murder and not cannibalism, although Colorado lore likes to claim he was "the only man in U.S. history ever convicted of cannibalism." At the University of Colorado at the grill at the Student Union is named the Alferd Packer Grill (the spelling of Packer's first name is but one of several points of dispute in the story).

Parker and Stone were students at Colorado and so it is not surprising that Parker would turn Packer story into a musical. The film was originally entitled "Alfred Packer: The Musical", but Troma's owner Lloyd Kaufman argued for the name change because while Packer is a legendary figure in Colorado, his cannibalistic claim of fame is little known outside of the state.

Actually, there is not as much cannibalism as you would think in this movie, and there are certainly enough songs. The latter is the bigger complaint, because the songs are the best part of the film and the funniest parts as well.

Trey Parker of South Park fame makes his acting and directing debut in this strange and hilarious take on the life and times of one Alfred Packer, a man accused of multiple murders and cannibalisim in the rough days of mining, trapping, and open frontiers. It tells the story from Packers point of view, and follows his journey to find his best friend, an arabian mare named leeann. Continuous idocy and hilarity result when he and his band of miner wannabes meet trappers, indians, and get stuck in the wilderness during the middle of winter. Note: the horse jokes are his way of getting even with and old girlfriend of the same name.

Filmed in 1993 but picked up and released in 1996 by Troma Entertainment. For those of you who don't know about Troma they have more than 32 years of experience in the business of producing and distributing Independent films. They specialize in gory exploitation movies and are best known for The Toxic Avenger.

So what differs between the past version and the recently released 13th Anniversary Edition?

For one there are never before seen deleted scenes that are so funny and twisted that they should have kept them in the movie. At least now we get to take part of them as well.
There is also a new commentary track that involves some of the other people involved in the production and you get to hear their take on things. I can only say one thing; the production of it seems to be as interesting as the movie.
But the real treasure is the 1 hour of interviews that has been located and shares with us. Here you get to hear what everyone thinks of the movie and Trey Parker and Matt Stone. And its not all good things haha
Other features include new production stills and many things more.

This is my favorite Parker/Stone movie and Troma release and I can highly recommend it to all of you South Park fans, Troma fans, or general movie lovers. And if you already own it. Buy it again like I did.

WTF is up with Amazon!
It was brought to light (the movie) by a prominant L.A radio station and everyone wants it now, so they raised the price to make more money. But it's the sellers.
