Gary Busey + Gingerbread = Horror Movie Crapola
Ok, for what it's worth this is the plot, Millard Findlemeyer (Gary Busey) robs a local diner and while there he executes the whole family bar daughter Sara - probably because she was hot!
Years later, Sara is working in a family bakery with friends Julia (Daniela Melgoza) and Brick (Jonathan Chase) and finally trying to get on with her life. However one day a strange package arrives with some new gingerbread seasoning with Findlemeyer having just being cremated recently. Yes, you've guessed it, the “seasoning” is added to the gingerbread mix along with some of Bricks blood as he accidentally cut himself, and before you know it Busey is reincarnated as the Gingerdead Man - a walking talking cookie!
From director Charles Band who was responsible for the equally daft but more importantly entertaining “Puppet Master” movies, this is a very disappointing effort. Nothing much really happens and if you take away the titles and the credits it's barely an hour long, but seems to really drags regardless. Additionally, without any gratuitous sex and violence to spice it up, this is a real bore fest, with the Gingerdead Man himself having very little personality despite being voiced by the usually entertaining Busey.
Very poor - cannot recommend this at all - go out and track down the Puppet Master series instead, at least they are good fun.
