Series: Kill of the Week! #8 — Keep Away from Pumpkinhead

Oh, my little freaks and freakettes, I’m so happy. Summer is over, and for the next five weeks or so, it’s our time – official, balls-to-the-wall Halloween time. It’s this time of year that our blood lust is accepted by the world at large and our year-round viewing habits are finally vindicated.

Okay. Honestly though. Who really thought Pumpkinhead could be killed by a gunshot wound? Lance Henriksen should know better (but he gets a pass on this one, because he’s Lance Henriksen). Pumpkinhead, you know, to his credit — he could have just picked up the rifle and blown that kid’s head off, but where’s the fun in that? He’s a revenge machine, but he’s a creative one. Skip ahead to about 1:15 to watch him give Joel the business.

Pumpkinhead is the perfect autumn movie, and everytime I watch it, I just dig on it so hard. It’s got everything – graveyards, gnarly old witches, Lance Henriksen fighting a monster…I can’t guarantee I won’t watch this one again before the season’s up. Oh my dark lord. I love Pumpkinhead.
