Arrow Video to Drop 'Microwave Massacre' This August


On this July 4th here in the good ol' U S of A where you'll no doubt be barbecuing we here at the DW bring you news regarding a film centered around a killer microwave. Here's DreadWorld, finger so far from the pulse it's shoved right up our collective asses. Said film, Microwave Massacre, is set to hit Blu-Ray this August from our good friends (not good enough to send us free shit...just sayin') at Arrow Video US on the 16th of the month. Check out some hastily put together cut and paste stuff from the press release for Microwave Massacre below. Then follow the links over to the Arrow/MVD site or Amazon to pre-order the film.

Microwave Massacre [Blu-ray + DVD] (August 16th)

"Microwave Massacre stars legendary stand-up comedian and actor Jackie Vernon as Donald, a disgruntled construction worker whose wife's predilection for haute cuisine drives him to cannibalism.

Donald unwittingly stumbles upon a solution to his two major problems in his life - his nagging wife and his lack of decent meals - when, one night, he bludgeons his better half to death with a pepper grinder in a drunken rage. Thinking on his feet, Donald dismembers the body and sets about microwaving the remains, which turn out to be rather delicious. Trouble is, now he has a taste for human flesh that needs satisfying...

Eschewing all notions of good taste, Wayne Berwick's Microwave Massacre is a deliciously depraved exercise in political incorrectness that has gone on to gain a cult following thanks to a characteristically deadpan performance from Vernon, who delivers such choice lines as "I'm so hungry I could eat a whore." Vegetarians need not apply!"
