Microwave Massacre. an original story and screenplay by David Baughn and Craig Muckler, is a dark, thrill-a-minute comedy horror film based on the original cult classic Microwave Massacre. The producers are also known for their work on Malibu High, Graduation Day and Beyond Evil. Microwave Massacre can be filmed on location without many expensive sets and construction. Apart from the lead roles, the film will include severalcameo roles that can be filmed in one and two days. The company expects to cast recognizable actors for these roles. This strategy not only allows the company to utilize star talent without excessively increasing the production budget, but it also adds to the marketability of the project.

We have many valuable relationships in the moviemaking community will allow them not only to attract excellent talent but also to achieve the goal of producing an inexpensive film with great commercial potential.

STORY SYNOPSIS

There are a series of random killings suddenly plaguing Southern California. The killers use cruel and kinky methods in their madness. They seek out only young women, lop off their heads, cook those heads in a microwave and take away the bodies, always leaving a note saying “Yummee”. Frank Ramirez, 30, a homicide veteran, and Cricket Anderson, 22, a rookie, are assigned to the case.

Without fingerprints, it’s slow solving these murders. In the process, Frank and Cricket are falling for each other, but struggle to keep it professional until the case is solved. The audience knows before the detectives that Attorney Mark Gotanian is the brain behind the killings. He is selling the female flesh in his restaurant called the “Meatery Eatery”. The female flesh-eating Beastie family, out of Barstow, CA, does his bidding. Mark gets greedy for expansion and fires his junior partners but is killed instead in the Beastie’s brand-new, floor-to-ceiling microwave oven purchased in the Beastie’s favorite catalog, The Country Corner.

The detectives spot a matching “Yummee” note carelessly left by one of the Beasties on the front window advertising display of the “Meatery Eatery,” and the closing in on the Beastie family commences. After many killings and Cricket’s close brush with death at the Beastie home, Frank, Cricket and Gigi, a young, courageous survivor, manage to destroy the Beasties and their house of evil.

 

Sounds like a fun movie!  Well it will be with your help.  We're seeking funding to produce the movie trailer and cover legal fees as well as on site travel.  Have some fun with your investment. Be a part of Team Microwave Massacre!  I think at the very least you would want a hand sandwich! But a Burger is fine!  Man!  I'm hungry!
