Name That Trauma:: Kelly M. on a Possessed Hamburger

February 4th, 2017 by unkle lancifer · 6 Comments

Hey! First of all – love your blog! It’s so comprehensive, plus funny – it’s amazing 😀

Down to brass tacks – I vaguely remember watching a movie on TV maybe 7 or 8 years ago which still nags at me sometimes. I believe it was a horror movie – here are the details I remember:

* Youngish guy working at a burger joint late at night.

*A burger he’s making is sitting on the counter when lighting strikes the building and happens to be directed to the burger.

*It proceeds to come to life and psychologically manipulate the young man into taking over the world, used either CG or claymation that was very eerie.

Thanks for your work!


UNK SEZ:
Thanks for your kind words, Kelly! Aunt John, our resident BETTER OFF DEAD-fanatic, is emphatically certain that you are talking about SAVAGE STEVE HOLLAND‘s kooky off-kilter classic BETTER OFF DEAD (1985) and I’m inclined to agree. As much as I wish we lived in a world with many a possessed hamburger movie to choose from, I’m sad to say we probably don’t. Check out the scene below and let us know!

“Baby, how ’bout you?” – He’s mouthing the lyrics of the song.

“Well I seen a lotta people
take a ride on a moonbeam.”
