The Gingerdead Man (2005)

Nomination Year: 2013
SYNOPSIS:  A psycho killer is sent to the electric chair by the lone survivor of one of his murderous rampages. Fast forward a year, and Sarah runs a run-down bakery with her alcoholic mother. After a mysterious hooded figure delivers a batch of "special gingerbread spices" (actually the killer's ashes), an assistant gets blood in the dough and what follows is a one-by-one killing spree by the world's worst cookie. What's worse is that all the characters' names are cookie-related. The lead is Sarah Leigh (= Sara Lee). Love interest: Amos (as in Famous) Cadbury (as in chocolate). Bitch-next-door is Lorna Dean (sounds like "Doone"). The assistant is Brick (oven?) Fields (as in "Mrs.").

And Lo, A Cookie Shall Be Born!
Electrical problems with her walk-in oven (?), a cookie that suddenly looks NOTHING like what she fashioned (22:45), and the bitch daughter of the bakery's across-the-street rival. There's a rat involved. A cat fight. They hit the fusebox and suddenly…! Jacob's ladder evil-cookie badness!

"Alas, Poor Yorick"

Rolling Pin
