I wouldn't say that Pumpkinhead is an outstanding film, but it has always been a film that I've enjoyed immensely in a way that none of its sequels matched. It is not perfect, with a plodding last third(though the very end is great) and some under-characterised exposition. However, there is so much to like about Pumpkinhead.

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 80’s (1519 movies items)

" Keep away from Pumpkinhead, unless you’re tired of living, His enemies are mostly dead, he’s mean and unforgiving. Laugh at him and you’re undone, but in some dreadful fashion, vengeance he considers fun, and heplans it with a passion. Time will not erase or blot, a plot that he has brewing. It’s when you think that he’s forgot, he’ll conjure your undoing. Bolted doors and windows barred, guard dogs prowling in the yard, won’t protect you in your bed. Nothing will, from Pumpk"

Pros and Cons of Films: Vol. 2 (130 movies items)

"Pros: It’s the first (and only) film directed by Stan Winston. The effects work. Pumpkinhead. The film’s underlying tragedy. The soundtrack The southern gothic atmosphere. The old witch Lance Henriksen, as Ed Hurley."

“I wouldn't say that Pumpkinhead is an outstanding film, but it has always been a film that I've enjoyed immensely in a way that none of its sequels matched. It is not perfect, with a plodding last third(though the very end is great) and some under-characterised exposition. However, there is so much to like about Pumpkinhead. The best two assets were the atmosphere and Pumpkinhead himself. The atmosphere has that sense of eeriness and the scares and killings(not relying on cheap gore like the sequels did thankfully) are genuinely creepy. Pumpkinhead is wonderfully played by Lance Henrikssen, the monster does look good and moves methodically while having that sense of dread. For my tastes, he was too ruthless in the sequels which diluted that sense for me. The sets look beautiful, and the mu” read more

October 2017 Horrorfest (45 movies items)

"First viewing - Oct. 22nd I wrapped up my weekend with Pumpkinhead, which was mainly worth seeing for the creature effects. Given that Stan Winston directed it, that probably shouldn't surprise anyone. The story was fine and I appreciated that it wasn't obvious about who might live. It's nothing I'd go out of my way to watch again though. Currently streaming on Amazon Prime"
