What the hell is this? And more importantly, what the hell is Gary Busey doing in it?
Admittedly, on first glance it seems the career of Gary Busey (cool cult surfer from Big Wednesday, terrific baddie in Lethal Weapon) is ever more on the slide with his appearance in the terribly-titled up-coming The Gingerdead Man.
But having watched the trailer from Charles Bond and his Full Moon Direct production company, it has to be said this film could (and we emphasise could) turn out to be a lot of fun. Gary Busy plays the Gingerdead Man who is caught and sent to the electric chair, but unfortunately, his ashes end up in a can of Ginger Bread seasoning.

The trailer, featuring finger snipping and the daftest monster ever ("Eat me you punk bitch!"), can be found at www.fullmoondirect.com/. Go ahead and watch it, just don't say we didn't warn you.
Charles Bond has just recently formed Wizard Entertainment, a new company for which he will produce and direct six films annually.
