"Microwave Massacre" (1983) |

  Photo credit: Apple TV by Bone Jawnson There is an old saying that goes, "You should never meet your idols." As a twist on this, I feel that "you should never watch actors who voiced your childhood cartoon of Frosty the Snowman cook his murder victims in a microwave oven." Yet, this is exactly what happened when I watched "Microwave Massacre." This film starred the ever-deadpan stand-up comedian Jackie Vernon, who played the role of a disgruntled husband and construction worker named Donald. ( Click here for a clip of Jackie's stand-up routine.) During his film career, Vernon most notably voiced the character of Frosty in the classic, made-for-television cartoon "Frosty the Snowman" (1969) , as well as the subsequent "Frosty's Winter Wonderland" (1976) and "Rudolph and Frosty's Christmas in July" (1979).    "Microwave Massacre" is sandwiched between Vernon's third role as Frosty and an independe

"Terror at Blood Fart Lake" (2008) |

From the boondocky mystery resident, Leo De Champa, who warns the teens about the lake and supplies them with "fuel" for their car, to the ambiguous caretaker Caspian, to the cornhole murders (you will just have to watch it)

Having started my journey into the Sherlock-iverse with the more recent "Odd Noggins," I decided to backtrack two decades to "Bloodsucking Redneck Vampires" to check out some of his earlier work. When I initially saw a running time of one hour and forty-seven minutes, I thought I would be in for a long, drawn-out viewing session like the last week. Boy, was I wrong! From beginning to end, I was intrigued by the storyline, small-town humor, innuendos, and drunken debauchery.  I actually found myself rooting for various characters! My favorite character, hands-down, is Cletus, who is a comic sidekick to a character named Junior. Cletus was played by the late Bill Bradford, who also m
