Evil never tasted so good! When Sarah Leigh (Robin Sydney) testifies against a murderer (Garey Busey) in a death penalty case, she never expects him to return to life in the form of a delicious dessert. But that's exactly what happens when his cremated ashes accidentally fall into a batch of batter and are baked into a gingerbread man. Now, the adorable yet evil cookie will stop at nothing to find the woman who sent him to the electric chair.
Depending on one's point of view, Gary Busey either sinks or rises to new levels of crazed weirdness in this low-budget, gore-drenched Z-movie. Busey plays deranged murderer Millard Findlemeyer, who's sent to the electric chair by brave witness Sara Leigh (Robin Sidney) after he murders her family. But his creepy, vengeful mother mixes his ashes into some homemade gingerbread mix, and when the mix winds up at the Leigh bakery, all it takes is a few drops of blood to trigger an ancient curse and bring Millard's soul to life in the form of an evil, homicidal pastry. Bloodshed ensues as Sara and her friends are forced to fight for their lives against this walking, talking, and stabbing (but oddly kind of adorable) gingerbread man.
