Movie Info

A deranged psychopath returns from the grave in the form of a delicious but deadly treat in B-movie specialist Charles Band's bloody tale of baked goods gone bad. When psychotic killer Millard Findlemeyer (Gary Busey) entered a small-town diner and rained a shower of lead upon the Leigh family, the only family member to survive the horrifying ordeal was devoted daughter Sara Leigh (Robin Sydney). It was Sara's heartfelt testimony that sent Findlemeyer to fry in the electric chair, and also caused the killer's vengeful mother to cook up a diabolical plot for the ultimate revenge. After placing an ancient curse on her son's ashes, Mrs. Findlemeyer mixes the remains into a secret gingerbread cookie recipe and has the malicious mix sent to Sara Leigh's bakery. When bakery employee Brick Fields (Jonathon Chase) cuts himself while preparing the cookies and a drop of his blood spills into the mix, a twelve-inch tall terror emerges from the oven determined to finish the job that he failed to complete the first time around. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovimore

It's a fun and cheesy little time killer with a twisted villain that will likely spawn some fans...

What makes 'Gingerdead Man' so watchable is just how amazingly stupid it is.

as good as one would expect

February 15, 2008

To call a film like The Gingerdead Man a horror movie is doing it a disservice... it's really more of a comedy spoof of the genre itself.

"Evil Never Tasted So Good! Gary Busey is The Gingerdead Man!" - That's what you'll see if, for some ungodly reason, you happen to be holding the latest Charles Band DVD.

Audience Reviews for The Gingerdead Man

I didn't think it was possible for an hour-long movie to drag this much.

Gary Bussey has played a lot of B Movie Parts and though his Cameo was short lived in this flix, he was great. I thought that its was a Funny Slasser Flix, Robin Sidney is the Bomb. If I find it used it goes in the colllection.

Cute idea, not exploited as fully as it could have been. Drags, even though only an hour.
