I seen this movie once and I think that once is enough. I heard about this movie and I had to see it for myself. What can I say about this movie it's like porno without the sex/nudity if that makes sense lol. Bootleg straight to video movie I say that this movie is a see it once type movie, worth at least one watch. It did have some laugh out loud sassy one liners though. Gary B. plays a crazy killer that comes to life as a killer gingerbread man, I know right go figure lol. I thought that I was being nice giving this movie a half passing grade idk about this movie and what you can say about it. Go give it a watch and see for yourself 2 stars.
Without the strangely committed, and entertaining performance from Gary Busey, The Gingerdead Man would be no more than just a by-the-books, dumb slasher. It does show some creativity with the setting of a bakery, and humor that works just well enough to be considered decently funny.
How could some one bleed into flour and nobody notice the red of the blood when they mix it and that cookie cannot shoot guns very effectively 3 people at a distance of 5 feet and nobody got touch
They seemed to think the premise would be so funny they didn't need to make it funny.
It's absolute crap. But I'm not sure what I expected from the director in question. Charles Band is an unabashed schlock monger, and it shows through his works, particularly the "Evil Bong" series and other works from the more recent half of his filmography. My issue with those films -- and "The Gingerdead Man" -- in turn is that they dare to take themselves seriously. Even if it is only a little. Performances and writing that "try," no matter how poorly, completely miss the point of a movie with a title like this. Amp up the silly. Make me laugh. Don't try and patronize me with attempts at damaged protagonists and romantic b-plots. These things work much better when executed simplistically. The results here are infinitely boring, mind-numbingly stupid, and just plain bad, even if everything looks slightly better than the "Evil Bong" films in terms of blocking and framing.
A cookie-cutter movie (forgive me) that mutilates the word "comedy" by thinking it's awful plot and acting is funny while I writhed in my chair subjected to it's torture.
It was quite honestly the greatest movie i have ever had the pleasure of seeing, and i would recommend that anyone who likes having a good time go out of their way to watch this flick.
Come on how could this be a bad slasher film?
When The Gingerdead Man is on screen, it's a lot of fun. Sadly, he makes few appearances and his body count is very low. The acting leaves a lot to be desired and the pacing is a little slow. If you've seen all the other holiday horror movies and liked them, maybe give this one a shot. If not, there are many other much better entries in the genre.
Well, there goes horror baking.
