“sorry this movie is exactly my stupid shitty sense of humor” -- “pd187”, Letterboxd
An insane and gore-filled comedy/horror extravaganza, MICROWAVE MASSACRE is a real ‘80s relic dressed up like a ‘70s porno. The film’s curmudgeonly killer: Jackie Vernon, a real-life raunchy stand-up best known as the original cartoon voice of Frosty the Snowman. Vernon, playing a dimwit construction worker everyman, just wants to eat a bologna sandwich for lunch with the guys, but is forced to consume an array of grotesque gourmet experiments engineered by his shrill wife equipped with a ridiculously oversized new microwave. A bout of drunkenness and the sight of one of the wife’s repulsive meals is all it takes to push Donald to commit the titular act, thus beginning this slapstick gorefest.
