Full Moon has done it again. They've turned out a formula movie that's worth watching, at least to B horror movie fans. The plot is simple- guy robs bakery killing the father and son owner, but lets the daughter live- the daughter testifies against the killer- killer gets executed- killer's deranged mother has his ashes mixed in with cookie dough at the offending bakery- possessed cookie goes on a killing spree.

The puppet work is fun to watch and some of the special effects at the end are amusing. The dialogue is deliciously campy, and the acting is just bad enough to be great. Of course, whoever wrote this never did any baking themselves, because there are a million plot holes around that issue, but that's just me nitpicking.

Over all, this is a fun movie. Don't go in expecting to be scared, or for the movie to be great. Just expect to have an hour's amusement and you'll be quite pleased with the result.

Recommended to B horror movie fans, and Full Moon fans, of course.

This is absolutely not a classic and is absolutely pure low budget greatness, I love it. Plus I like the fact that the film is set in Waco Texas which …

It's called The Gingerdead Man & The Gingerdead Man is voiced by crazy mofo Gary Busey. Need I say more?
