Gingerdead Man 2: Passion of the Crust - Dollar Bin Film

Everyone's favorite killer pastry invades the sound stages of an infamous horror studio, known for low budget junk, intent on murdering the cast and crew as part of the necessary steps towards being able to transfer his soul into a human body.

Send up of the low budget movie making process, obviously, is supposed to be a comedic behind the scenes portrait of what it's like for Full Moon Films, the production company behind this film. The humor and references definitely hits home with plenty of knowing jabs for the B movie buff and Full Moon aficionado. And the Gingerdead Man gets to have some amusing little moments employing some deliciously tasteless methods to dispose of his victims. Or he gets some quick, witty one liners when he's not killing someone. However, Gingerdead Man 2 is a bit chaotic and all over the place. The film feels like it has too much going on all at once. No one element ever gets to shine as well as it could have, because the film is constantly jerking viewers all over the place. There's just too much to digest within the scope of a 72 minute movie. Gingerdead Man 2 has its moments, but it would have been better served with a more focused script and direction.

It was a unique one as I have never heard about this movie. The tittle and the movie synopsis are quite funny. I wanted to see it to gain some nice moments watching this movie.
