Cannibal Comedian is a horror epic with an undertone of dark comedy. Set in modern-day Western USA, the film will allow us to explore the intertwining of over-the-top humor and rampaging horror at full throttle. It will combine the pure terror of hearing Leatherface’s chainsaw with the gut-busting laughs of a classic Jim Carrey film. Littered with scary, grotesque and wildly energetic characters, Cannibal Comedian is a love letter to horror and “stand-up” comedy.
THE TALE Stand-up comedy that slaughters!
The film opens with narrated bloody text. Throughout history, after the battle, we drink the blood of our enemies... and we consume the ones we love.
We begin in the high western desert night, inside a sub-shop kitchen with CHARLIE. A couple in their twenties arrive at the sub-shop and become the first victims of a brutal slaughter.
Charlie runs a human meat sub shop at the edge of town. He hunts drifters and cooks them up for a small community of cannibals. He has a passion for stand-up comedy and performs regularly for his victims in his basement.
He finally decides to do stand-up at the town’s comedy club run by a real scum bag named CARREY. SHERIFF WEAVER and ELEANOR, a sadistic tranny, along with the small community of cannibals worry about Charlie exploiting cannibalism in his act.
He takes a liking to his hostage, the sultry CHRYSTAL, which later becomes a scathing dilemma. We witness Charlie struggle between two different worlds of brutality, mass murder and Stand-up Comedy! As we move toward the finale, his world and everyone around him change forever.
It’s a non-stop blood-curdling ride until the very end, graphic gore and puns galore!
About Sean Haitz
I have been passionate about making movies since the age of nine when I picked up my first video camera. I haven't put it down since! My first film with a production team was a twenty-minute short called SWAMP ZOMBIE. I rallied up my friends and family to help be the actors and crew members. I was thirteen at the time. Growing up I’ve always loved Halloween. When I was ten, my friends and I decorated a haunted yard for the neighborhood. I dressed as Freddy Krueger and instead of wearing a mask I used warm liquid latex on my face to make it more realistic. I got such a thrill from jumping out of the dark and scaring people.
My first film to gain notoriety was MANGROVE SLASHER 2, a forty-seven-minute horror/shlock comedy. The budget was $600 and a bucket of blood. It sold out all three showings in the Sarasota Film Festival and received a cult following from tons of horror news coverage. My first feature-length film BIG TOP EVIL had a fifty-thousand-dollar budget and was picked up by Gravitas Ventures Studios with a worldwide release. (Now available on-demand and Blu-Ray.) In the film, we have a cameo from horror icon Bill Moseley. I love making movies and music too! I am also a singer/songwriter using my original music in my films.
