A brilliant must see! Dead Funny! (Get it?)
This film is great. Providing you like sick humour! Its funny, silly, stupid and more. The songs are excellently written and the acting is quite good. I loved this film and, providing you dont mind a fair amount of blood, anyone else should too.

Critic Reviews

Did You Know?


While filming, Trey Parker watched Alive (1993), the drama film about a ruby team trapped in the mountains. He noticed the characters in that film had a problem with eating one another for sustenance, but once they do they cut right into a dead man's butt. This inspired Parker in the scene where the group decide to eat Jon Hegel's character. They then go around the room asking what part of a body they would eat first.


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, ...


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.

Crazy Credits

(At the end of the closing credits) Due to the graphic nature of this film, it should not have been watched by small children.

Alternate Versions

In the Troma release there is a quick shot of a black cat right before Packer loses his horse in the night. This was not in Parker's original release (fall 1993) in Boulder, CO at the Flatirons Theatre.
