A backwoods storekeeper (Lance Henriksen) conjures up a "vengeance demon" to take care of some city folk who accidentally killed his son, with predictably tragic results. What would've been a pretty standard creature feature is elevated by a cool lookin' monster, decent gore, and loads of moody, spooky atmosphere. Perfect Halloween viewing!

Useless trivia, this flick was the directorial debut of Stan Winston, the special effects master who'd created creatures and monsters for countless classic films like "Aliens," "Jurassic Park" and "Predator."

Five Stars for the Movie....Zero Stars for Reviewers Here
Graboidz | Westminster, Maryland | 04/27/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Pumpkinhead is an orignal and at times, a pretty frightening little horror movie. The film builds suspense, and gives you real characters, not just usual horror film slaughter fodder. If you have not seen this little forgotten gem do yourself a favor, pick it up, and block off a late Saturday night to watch it with the lights off, and big old bowl of popcorn near to hand. BUT....by all means, avoid reading most of the reviews posted. Most of the reviewers here are not reviewing the movie, so much as detailing all of the events that occur in the film!! WHY do so many people feel obliged to not only give away major plot points of a film, but basically run down the entire script of the film...I mean really, after reading some of the reviews posted here, the only thing left to watch the film for is to see who provided the catering on the set!! I highly recommend this movie like most of the other reviewers here....but you will enjoy the film so much more if you go into it not knowing what to expect!"
An overlooked horror classic
N. Durham | Philadelphia, PA | 05/02/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Stan Winston, who is possibly the greatest makeup artist and creature effect artist ever, directed this unusually good horror film. Lance Henriksen stars as Ed Harley, a man who wants revenge against the city folk who accidently killed his son. He goes to a witch that lives near a swamp and she conjures up Pumpkinhead, a monster that will get revenge on the yuppies. However, Ed begins to realize that he has made a mistake, and he tries to stop the monster he helped unleash. Henriksen is unbelieveably good in his role, and it may be the best of his career. Stan Winston did a great job as director and its a shame he hasn't directed anything since. As with the original Halloween, Pumpkinhead is a horror movie that pulls off being scary and good at the same time without buckets of blood and gore being splashed every other scene. Highly recommended."
A Gothic masterpiece
Jon E. Anderson | Naples Fl. | 07/27/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"One of the few movies of the "gothic horror" genre that truly follows the "recipe" of having a moral. The slow transformation of Ed Harley into the creature due solely to his anger and quest for revenge is a lesson to be learned by all of us. Being a Lance Henriksen fan, I thought his role as Ed Harley was his best and "Buck" Flower was great in a supporting role. And anyone who has seen this movie can't help but carry the vision of Haggis in their memory. And Stan Winston, well, what more do you have to know. He is one of the best. Truly an overlooked classic. I have often characterized this movie as "Alien" meets "Deliverance" , but, unlike Alien or Predator, this is a creature with a mission."
