Pumpkinhead’s 20th gets Big DVD!

He still ain't legal to drink!Two decades ago a good man named Ed left his son for a moment. When he returned, the little boy was dead at the hands of some reckless kids. Grief-stricken, Ed turned to an old witch in the mountains to seek revenge by unleashing the demon we all know as Pumpkinhead.

Fangoria was sent word from MGM Home Entertainment that a 20th Anniversary edition of Pumpkinhead is in the works. This celebration of late Stan Winston’s first directorial effort is not just some bare bones DVD with a fancy new cover, but the real deal. This is how you make a special DVD:

  • Audio commentary track featuring co-screenwriter Gary Gerani and creature FX creators Tom Woodruff, Jr. and Alec Gillis moderated by Scott Spiegel
  • Seven new featurettes
  • Behind-the-scenes video
  • Stills gallery

    The DVD will debut on September 9th, which is the same day Chucky will be celebrating his 20th birthday with a new video release as well.

      FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I love love love me some PUMPKINHEAD. Too bad Mr. Winston isn’t part of this. Rather than cry “A day late” though, I’m just way happy the film is getting the release it deserves.

      Ahh, just like last September with Alligator, The Burning, Scarecrows and From Beyond…this year’s September is shaping up nicely.

      Two must-buys so far in Child’s Play and Pumpkinhead.

      20th Anniversary? Aw hell, I’m starting to feel so OLD!

      I still can’t believe he’s dead…
