...the movie's extreme incompetence ensures that even the most open-minded of viewers will find nothing worth embracing here.

Reel Film Reviews

This is nostalgia at its most wrong, but also, for those of a certain mindset, it might prove a lost treasure from the trash - like the woman's arm that a passing bum finds in Donald's rubbish bin, and repurposes as a crotch- and back-scratcher.

Microwave Massacre is one piece of trash that really should be consigned to the refuse pile of history.

Audience Reviews for Microwave Massacre

This is a nutty film. It's by far not "The worst horror movie of all time" like it says it is. It's just a nutty black comedy with a decent sense of humor.

First of all this isn't a horror movie. Second of all it would be an insult to you, the general movie-going populace, the people who make filmed entertainment and those who market it to even call this a movie! It's got humor along the lines of Kentucky Fried and Amazon Women, at least in its attempted wordplay and appreciations of its own cleverness, but everything is so miserably done it's just a waste of time to even be putting words down here to describe it. Trash, nonsense, not as funny as it should be, intentionally or unintentionally. Actually all the humor here is on purpose. This isn't even one of those movies that's so horrendous it becomes funny. The horrendous is still horrendous, and the "funny" just simply isn't. "Worst horror movie of all time?" The fact that a movie advertises that as a badge of honor makes one think it wears its badness on its sleeve, but they made that up just to slap on the poster! What a joke.

A not terrible horror/comedy with a total of three locations for the whole film! About as good as Big Meat Eater. The best set of breasts I have ever seen! Seriously!
