Beware the Gingerdead Man this Christmas!


This 2005 made film, is fast becoming a cult classic amongst horror comedy film fans the world over and is an absolute must-see during the festive holidays.

When a crazed killer, by the name of Millard Findlemeyer (Gary Busey; Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Point Break), is executed, his dear mother sends his ashes, disguised as cookie seasoning, to the bakery of the one person who got away from his horrific rampage. Once added to the dough and put in the oven, everyone's Christmas joy is turned to terror, as a gingerbread man magically comes to life and the killings start up again, with hilarious consequences.

The Gingerdead Man hiding in our Christmas Tree


Masterfully directed by Charles Band (Puppetmaster and Tracers) and co-written by William Butler (Madhouse and Disney Get Connected) and the late, great Domonic Muir (Critters and 1998's Hitman) and also starring Robin Sydney (Killjoy's Psycho Circus and The Lost), Ryan Locke (Supercross and The New Twenty) and Larry Cedar (American Horror Story and Deadwood), The Gingerdead man is a combination of hilarity and scary Christmas fun, served with cheesy effects, wonderful acting skills and very well done puppetry, which will have you ready and raring to seek out its many sequels.



The Gingerdead Man is rated MA and is recommended for viewers aged 15 and up, as it contains strong language and horror violence.

8/10
