No, we’re not talking about the Cookie Monster’s sister—we mean that THE GINGERDEAD MAN, which promises to be the most berserk movie yet from B-veteran Charles Band, has been assigned a DVD release date of November 24 by Wizard Entertainment. Specifics haven’t been announced, but we’re really seriously hoping for a commentary by actor Gary Busey about the career trajectory that has led him from an Oscar nomination to voicing a cookie character come to murderous life. Band directed from a script by Domonic (CRITTERS) Muir, based on a story by William (MADHOUSE) Butler, who was once going to direct the project (the poster art is from that incarnation). You can check out a trailer for the movie at the Wizard site linked above, and start salivating! The site also notes that principal photography has been completed on a movie called CUTTER’S CLUB, starring CANDYMAN’s Tony Todd.
Meanwhile, Band has announced at his own blog the schedule for his Full Moon Horror Roadshow, a series of stage presentations in which he’ll promote his current and upcoming releases, reveal tricks of the trade and give away prizes:
October 5—Austin, TX: Paramount
October 6—Houston, TX: The Meridian
October 8—Dallas, TX: Lakewood Theater
October 13—Madison, WI: The Orpheum Theater
October 15—Columbus, OH: Capitol Theatre
October 16—Cleveland, OH: The Agora

October 21—Pittsburgh, PA: Mr. Smalls
October 22—Buffalo, NY: The Icon

Keep on eye on that site for more dates and details. Among the titles he’ll be announcing is WILLIAM SHATNER’S FULL MOON FRIGHTNIGHT, a 10-DVD boxed set of past titles with Shatner’s “crazy and inspired” hosting and interviews with the likes of Roger Corman, Stuart Gordon, Jeffrey Combs, Stan Lee and more.
