Cannibal Comedian – horror dark comedy
Premiere late 2020
A Film By Sean Haitz
Synopsis: A psychopathic cannibal, fed up with his lack of ambition, tries his hand at standup comedy in an attempt to satisfy his appetite for normalcy.
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 overthe-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.
Stand up comedy that slaughters
Charlie runs a human meat sub cart 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 desert town’s comedy club run by a real scumbag 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.
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.
