October 18: Pumpkinhead

movie reviews

As far as I’m concerned, Pumpkinhead is Halloween. I mean, it’s a guy with a pumpkin for a head!

Okay, so it’s not. But it is a demon from a pumpkin patch. Close enough, right? This movie is awesome. A guy’s kid gets hit by a dirt bike and dies. He takes the kid to a witch who, oddly enough, cannot bring him back to life. She can, however, summon a demon to exact revenge. Dad accepts and the mayhem begins.

Pumpkinhead himself is one of my favorite movie monsters, even if the franchise isn’t consistently top notch. I like the idea of the creature. It’s big and creepy and awesome. A nice cross between Alien and something more primal. It feels like an unearthly woodland creature. I hope it really exists somewhere. Perhaps there’s a witch out there that can get to work on that for me?
