The Gingerdead Man Catches Saturday Night Fever

I famously gave The Gingerdead Man a four-knife review. Sue me. I dug it. The sequel, not so much. Will the third time be the charm? It just might given how happy the killer cookie appears in the first released image of him in his swanky new disco duds.

In case you haven’t heard, Charles Band’s psychopathic pastry is poised to return for a third time in Gingerdead Man 3: Saturday Night Cleaver. The folks at Full Moon were so excited upon seeing the Gingerdead Man all Travolta’d up they set caps to lock and sent out a mass e-mail.

“HEY FULL MOON DUUUUDES!!!! ANOTHER FRIDAY!!! CHECK OUT HOW DEMENTED OUR GINGERDEADMAN LOOKS FOR GINGERDEADMAN 3: SATURDAY NIGHT CLEAVER!!! IN THE FILM HE GOES BACK TO THE 70’S AND KICKS SOME CRAZY DISCO ASS!!!! WE ARE TRYING TO LOCK IN A DATE TO SHOOT IT AND AS SOON AS WE DO WE’LL LET ALL YOU KNOW RIGHT HERE AT WWW.FULLMOONDIRECT.COM!!!”

Are we sure Harry Knowles didn’t write this press release?

The Gingerdead Man was voiced in the first film by Gary Busey. I don’t think the character has ever looked as Busey-esque as it does in the image below.

    You Know i’m with foy on this one, I actually liked the first Gingerdead man too, for me it kinda felt like the early 90’s full mooon films, that’s why liked it, 2nd one not so much

    I love ginger bread, I love disco (yes I admit it). I also love movies about killer dolls/cookies/puppets. I’m in.

      Disco rules. Sure it’s become somewhat of a bad joke, but so has rock, hip hop, pop, and anything else out there. Stuff like “More, More, More,” and “I’m your Boogeyman,” rocks.

      Anyway, I still have to see these movies.

        A) If you’re going to represent disco with songs as least pick better artists than that. Like Chic or Liquid Liquid.

        B) The Gingerdead man in that photo looks more like an evil fungi than gingerbread.

          Hey now, those songs fucking rock, period. They’re great to dance to. I don’t dance, but if I did, I would dance to those.

            You don’t dance? C’mon… EVERYONE dances, even if it’s in the privacy of their own room! I bet you’ve tapped your foot to more than a few disco tunes in your day! :)

            Yeah I mean I’ve wiggled and jiggled a little bit, sure, but in public at parties? VERY rarely. The last time I did was at my parents anniversary party. I was very drunk and flirting with a girl and my aunt pulled me out on the floor and I danced for a few minutes. Hehe, yeah I guess you’re right, I HAVE danced before.
