PUMPKINHEAD Remake Still in the Works with Big News Coming Soon

Well, it looks like that remake of Stan Winston’s Pumpkinhead is still in the works, with producer Peter Block recently telling Rue Morgue:

We have some exciting news that I’m not allowed to share yet, but that should be making its way out soon. Pumpkinhead is a movie I just love … and while the original Pumpkinhead is a great movie, I think that there is more that can be done with that idea.”

He continues:

Sometimes I loathe remakes and reboots because I don’t see the reason for them, but [this] is one of those where I believe the story and the themes of it are so good, but there’s also a way of updating it where less focus on the creature, in the beginning, will add to a lot of the suspense.”

Are you excited about this (or any) Pumpkinhead remake? What do you think of the original film? Let us know below in the comments or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram

The original film begins after the son of Ed Harley (Lance Henriksen) dies in a hit-and-run. He then seeks revenge against the teenagers responsible with the help of a local witch and together they summon the vengeful demon Pumpkinhead to hunt and kill the group of friends.

But when Ed discovers a bond between himself and the creature, he has second thoughts about using the vicious monster, and he fights to end Pumpkinhead’s murderous rampage.

Directed by Stan Winston from a screenplay written by Winston, Richard C. Weinman, Gary Gerani, and Mark Patrick Carducci, Pumpkinhead was produced by Bill Blake and stars Lance Henriksen, John D’Aquino, and Kerry Remsen. United Artists/MGM unleashed it back on January 13, 1989.

Since then the Pumpkinhead franchise has spawned three sequels: Jeff Burr’s Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings in 1994, Jake West’s Pumpkinhead: Ashes to Ashes in 2006, and Michael Hurst’s Pumpkinhead: Blood Feud in 2007. Which sequel is YOUR favorite?
