"A man conjures up a gigantic vengeance demon called Pumpkinhead to destroy the teenagers who accidentally killed his son."

|Haggis the witch|
Ed Harley ( ultra cool Lance Henriksen ) lives the simple backwoods country life in the Appalacian Mountains. Ed runs a grocery stand ( that may be the only grocery in miles ) supporting him and his only son, young Billy. They go about their days tending to their store until one day a couple of city teens come along and accidentally injure little Billy. Ed finds his fatally wounded son and enraged by what he sees as carelessness on the teens parts, decides to call upon the ultimate act of vengeance. Harley visits a old witch that lives deep in the swamps, and together they summon the giant demonic being Pumpkinhead to avenge his loss. It runs its course on the teens,but little does Harley know he has to face much more than what he asked for.
|The unlucky ones|
Gore : 2/5 - Its not very gory, but that's just fine. We get a girls face carved into and smashed through a glass window, impaled on a rifle, amongst a few other things.
Gratuitous Nudity 0/5 - Nothing at all. Didn't need it though.
Death Count : 6
Special FX : 5/5 - This is the real star of the film, like I said, Pumpkinhead looks phenomenal.

Best scenes : By far my favorite is when Ed Harley visits the old witch. Her dilapidated house, her voice and just her screen presence is the stuff made of nightmares. I also love the pumpkin patch graveyard scene. There's old skeletons stuck in trees, old crumbling tombstones and right smack dab in the middle is Pumpkinhead's macabre and mangled looking burial mound. Talk about one creepy looking set.
Things you will learn from this movie :
Pumpkinhead hates religion.
Playing with vegetables is always a option.
Kids in the Appalacian mountains are fucking filthy and never change their clothes.
Never pick up guy that made stew outta their wife's foot.
Just when you try to do the right thing and change your wrongful ways, a giant demon kills you.
Some people don't know what a camera is.
The girl that screams and complains the most......always gets it the worst.
