Created by practical effects legend Stan Winston, Pumpkinhead is a horror movie monster who wreaks havoc on those that wronged its summoner. Pumpkinhead might not be one of horror movie’s most famous monsters, but throughout history, the mutated monster has killed and maimed his way into our hearts. Pumpkinhead explained how a human can succumb to their desire for revenge, no matter what the horrific cost is, as Lance Henriksen could attest.
From the original Pumpkinhead origin to every trailer, clip and scene, this gory gourd’s kill count is nothing to shake a stick at. Plenty of heads also roll in the Pumpkinhead video game, “Bloodwings: Pumpkinhead’s Revenge.” This Halloween, you can take a different kind of scary movie slasher for a spin with this destructive monster demon.
