Amongst a sea of sequels and remakes that year, Stan Winston's tragic and terrifying backwoods fairy tale stood out as something wholly unique and also gave us some incredible character development by way of Henriksen's tragic character.

A last hurrah for the type of on-camera, practical monster effects that would soon go the way of the dinosaur, extinguished by the asteroid impact of digital technology.

"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.

MGM has done a great service to Pumpkinhead and its fans with this new Collector's Edition DVD and you'd be a fool to overlook this.

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

In spite of being almost twenty years old, this monster movie is still harrowing, creepy, and better than modern horror fare.

Typically hollow and patchy, the script is low par for the course, the acting close behind.

Nothing can appease Ed when he discovers the tragedy, including the apologetic pleas of one of the teenagers.
