Dude Bro Party Massacre III + Microwave Massacre Double Feature! (w/ Directors & Cast in person!)

Break out the pastel polos, puka shells and beer bongs — it’s time for some pure, uncut bro on bro horror cinema. Thankfully recorded off of late night television before President Ronald Reagan could ban it, Dude Bro Party Massacre III is a satirical take on the gory and sexually charged ’80s slashers genre, refreshingly exploiting soft male bodies via many a situation we’ve become accustomed to as exclusively feminine.

In the wake of two back-to-back mass murders on Chico’s frat row, loner Brent Chirino must infiltrate the ranks of a popular fraternity to investigate his twin brother’s murder at the hands of the serial killer known as ‘Motherface.’ But fear not genre fiends, plot gleefully takes a backseat to absurdly dumb broalogue, hackneyed late night commercial interruptions, cameos galore and gore that gushes like a beer right before a proper shotgun.

Dir. Tomm Jacobsen, Michael Rousselet & Jon Salmon, 2015, DCP, 91 min.

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 is Jackie Vernon, a raunchy stand-up comedian who happens to be best known as the original 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 frumpy and shrill wife, May, enthusiastically equipped with a comically oversized shiny new microwave oven. A bout of drunkenness and the sight of one of May’s fussy and repulsive meals is all it takes to push Donald to commit the titular act, thus beginning the slapstick gorefest that is Microwave Massacre. Nothing friendly about Frosty here!

Dir. Wayne Berwick, 1983, 76 min.
