Synopsis

“Vivid, stylish, atmospheric” – The Hollywood Reporter

When a group of teenagers inadvertently kill his only son, Ed Harley (Lance Henriksen, Aliens) seeks the powers of a backwoods witch to bring the child back to life. But instead, she invokes “the pumpkinhead” – a monstrously clawed demon which, once reborn, answers only to Ed’s bloodlust. But as the creature wreaks its slow, unspeakable tortures on the teens, Ed confronts a horrifying secret about his connection to the beast – and realizes that he must find a way to stop its deadly mission before he becomes one with the creature forever. Also starring Jeff East (Deadly Blessing), Joel Hoffman (Slumber Party Massacre II) and Kerry Remsen (A Nightmare On Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge), this “atmospheric, moralistic tale” (TV Guide) delivers demonic horror at its blood-drenched best.

Why We Love It

“Continuing on with their mission to provide amazing releases, Scream Factory not only included ALL of the bonus materials found on the previous special edition DVD but they’ve also included newly-produced featurettes in an effort to absolutely pack every bit of space on this disc with awesome material.” – Dread Central

“Technical merits here are very strong, and the supplementary package is absolutely outstanding. Recommended.” – BluRay.com

Pumpkinhead holds up well both as a monster movie and as a backwoods morality tale, deftly mixing supernatural elements with backwoods horror motifs in really interesting, effective ways. Henriksen's performance anchors the picture but he's surrounding by a good supporting cast and some fantastic creature effects. The Blu-ray special edition from Shout! Factory offers the film in a strong transfer with good audio and on a disc loaded with extra features. Highly recommended.” – DVD Talk

“If you are a Pumpkinhead fanatic, there is no question, this is an absolute must own.” – Diabolique Magazine
