February 19, 2020

In this episode, the Retro Movie Geek crew is joined by Jimmy Poole ( check out more from Jimmy HERE), and they’re geeking out over Cannibal! The Musical (1993) and

  • Japanese Indians
  • blood and gore
  • Trey Parker
  • unfaithful horses
  • and much, much more!


Cannibal! The Musical is the true story of the only person convicted of cannibalism in America – Alfred Packer!

The sole survivor of an ill-fated trip to the Colorado Territory, he tells his side of the harrowing tale to news reporter Polly Prye, as he awaits his execution… And his story goes like this: 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!

Packer and his five wacky mining buddies sing and dance their ways into your heart… and then takes a bite out of it! Cannibal! The Musical is Oklahoma meets Bloodsucking Freaks!
