We’ve generally had good luck with off-brand movies of the “possessed/evil object” variety, and this one had
Gary Busey as the killer, so I had high hopes for The Gingerdead Man.

I should really stop having high hopes. It never works out.

You might recognize Sarah Leigh (Robin Sydney) from other horror flicks, but this isn’t exactly a showcase for her talents, such as they are. Outside of Gary Busey, the acting was painfully bad. (And that’s with me using Gary Busey as the yardstick for “good” acting.) The performance of the actors, combined with poor quality mic’ing, gave the whole movie the feel of a cheap porno. Except one without any boobs.

The ridiculous premise of the movie plus Gary Busey and a couple of half-hearted one liners kept me from failing this movie. But only just. I’m still not sure how there are sequels.

If you must watch The Gingerdead Man, alcohol is recommended. But you can probably find a better way to fill 70 minutes.

Calamity Brains’ Rating: D-

The Codex Mortis Horror Hosts (Ludwig von Stroodle and Calamity Brains) are married and live in West Virginia. Pretty much everyone who sees their cabin agrees that it would be an ideal setting for a horror movie. Their pets include a black widow spider, a smart dog, and a stupid dog. When they aren’t watching horror movies, they can be found at whiskey festivals, Renaissance fairs, and board game nights.
