Typically hollow and patchy, the script is low par for the course, the acting close behind.
"Pumpkinhead" is horror, fantasy, supernatural thriller and tragedy all wrapped up in an enthralling, phatasmagorically realized whole.
The design of pumpkin head is brilliant and still immensely striking, despite the film's age.

It's all done in such a dislocated, hectic style that it's sometimes difficult to tell what's happening.

Great creature, primo Henriksen...Gotta love it.
Creepy, unusual horror film.
Satisfying B-movie fun from effects maestro Stan Winston.
