Video Nasty 'Microwave Massacre' Is Coming to Blu-Ray
Gotta Make room for May!

Unbelievable news, B (or even Z) list Movie 'Microwave Massacre' is going to be released by Arrow on unsuspected Blu-ray players across the world. Quite frankly if you've never heard of this utterly bonkers movie then your in for.....well something.

This is the exact video we had in our living room

Now I happened to grow up in a household that contained a vast amount of VHS tapes from a defunct video rental shop and Microwave Massacre happened to be one of them. Did it warp my fragile young mind.......yes, yes it did.

Now i'd LOVE to tell you that Microwave Massacre is on par with other well known video nasties like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Cannibal Holocaust.......but it isn't.

Good cooking tips

So what the hell's it about?.......can't you guess?

Here's the plot:

Construction worker Donald is having a hard time getting anything good to eat since his wife May has decided to only cook gourmet foods in their GIANT Microwave oven.

Eventually Donald snaps! and comes home drunk and murders her. After chopping her up and storing her in one of his many fridges, he accidentally ends up eating May one evening and realises he has a taste for human flesh.

With May soon devoured, Donald soon goes on the hunt for his next meal.....
