The Gingerdead Man (2005)

Director: Charles Band

Starring: Gary Busey, Robin Sydney, Ryan Locke

Run Time: 1:10

Rant: Just because you like a movie doesn't make it good. The Gingerdead Man is a piece of shit but I find it entertaining. There's a lot of gimmicky comedy/horror movies out there that deserve a good trashing but there are a few that I like. I'm not sure why I like this one though. I guess it's not as bad as some.

Gary Busey plays this guy named Millard Findlemeyer. I don't know if he's supposed to be a thief or a lunatic or what. Either way he kills this girl Sarah's entire family and now, with no help from her alcoholic mother, Sarah runs her family's bakery by herself. Millard Findlemeyer is caught and given the death penalty and maybe I missed something but I have no fucking clue how his ashes get into the gingerbread man.

Busey is really entertaining in this movie. He's so fucking strange. Robin Sydney, who plays Sarah, actually does a good job. She's not incredible but I expected much less. The rest of the cast might as well be mentally challenged.

There's so much bullshit in this movie. Who gives a fuck about these characters? Why do you make the main girl's love interest someone so unlikable? Why not focus on the Gingerdead Man killing people? I guess they needed the filler. It's only a little bit over an hour to begin with. Without the shit scenes it'd only be thirty minutes.

There should never be more survivors than kills. That's just being lazy. Especially with a movie like this. Jack Frost had to have had at least 10 and that movie was terrible. I don't know why they do this shit.

This is obviously silly as fuck. A guy ends up eating the Gingerdead man and becoming possessed. Who didn't see that shit coming? If you're in a good mood you'll enjoy it but other than that it's a below average awful horror movie.

Terrible Lines: "For tonight your ass is toast."
