Film Tampa Bay Presents: Cannibal Comedian

Film Tampa Bay Presents is a quarterly series designed to showcase Tampa Bay-area films, filmmakers, actors and locations through FREE community screenings at Tampa Theatre. And on Oct. 19, Cannibal Comedian from Florida native Sean Haitz and Tampa’s own Ryan James will have you screaming with laughter (or just screaming?) as part of the Nightmare on Franklin Street series.

Cannibal Comedian tells the tale about a psychopathic cannibal (Aaron Prager) who – fed up with his lack of ambition – tries his hand at stand-up comedy in an attempt to satisfy his appetite for normalcy. “It is a love letter to films like The King of Comedy and the original 1974 Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” says writer/director Haitz. Indeed, “our film features involvement from Tobe Hooper cast alumni Edwin Neal and Allen Danziger.”
