Pumpkinhead Being Resurrected as a Reboot
Around these parts we're HUGE fans of the Pumpkinhead creature, but judging from a cinematic standpoint, this big bad has gotten one raw deal after another. The original film was great, and its sequels got progressively more horrid one after the other.
Could this franchise get back on track? It sure couldn't do any worse!
The original Pumpkinhead was produced by the De Laurentiis Entertainment Group, headed up by Italian producer Dino De Laurentiis. De Laurentiis went on to produce Hannibal and Red Dragon.
For the rest of the franchise, the Motion Picture Corporation of America (MPCA) headed up by Brad Krevoy took the reins and is now back to produce the rebooted series.
The ’88 film starred Lance Henriksen as a man who conjures up a gigantic vengeance demon called Pumpkinhead to destroy the teenagers who accidentally killed his son.
While Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings is indeed bad, it's watchable in a for-shits-and-giggles kind of way. That being said, do yourselves a favor and avoid Pumpkinhead: Ashes to Ashes and Pumpkinhead: Blood Feud like a scorching case of herpes.
Look for more on this as it comes.
