Cannibal: The Musical (R)

In the traditional of Friday the 13th: Part 2 and Oklahoma, the Friday night kickoff is the B-classic Cannibal: The Musical!

This 1993 black comedy musical isn’t your grandmother’s idea of a musical, but it’s perfect for BIFF! This B-movie masterpiece (?) was created as a film school project by Trey Parker and Matt Stone of “South Park” fame. The filmmakers encourage you to “GASP! at the thrilling mountain adventures and sing along with our hero as he feasts on human flesh”.

Little shopLittle Shop of Horrors (PG-13)

What happens when you cross a florist nerd with a giant man-eating plant? You get a comedy musical worthy of BIFF!

Starring Rick Moranis, Steve Martin, and a gaggle of other goofy acting choices, Little Shop of Horrors is just plain silly. From mystery singers in the background to guest appearances by people like John Candy and James Belushi, this is a black comedy musical you don’t want to miss.

Our Saturday afternoon “mystery science theatre” side-show will point out all the little extras you might miss if you don’t watch closely.

chicken ranchThe Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (R)

What do whorehouses and musicals have in common? They’re the perfect combination for our BIFF finale.

The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas teams Dolly Parton’s beautiful voice and big chest with Burt Reynolds’ cute smile, but not-so-great vocals. The town sheriff and local “chicken ranch” owner must fight the wicked TV preacher to keep the Devil’s playhouse open.

When you combine the dancing sequences with Dom Deluise and Charles Durning with Jim Nabors’ drawl, you’ve got the makings for a perfect BIFF feature.
