Synopsis:

Horror icon Lance Henriksen (Pumpkinhead) stars in this riveting sequel to the Pumpkinhead franchise of horror films. As long as they can remember, the Hatfields and the McCoys have been the ultimate enemies. Reprisal after reprisal has mired their once idyllic town in a bloody cycle of violence and revenge. Yet a light shines in the midst of these families' hatred: the forbidden love between two members of the next generation, Jodie Hatfield and Ricky McCoy. But now Jodie and Ricky have confessed their love for one another and their families are not happy about it. When Ricky's younger sister is brutally killed by the Hatfields, old witch Haggis finds Ricky in the woods and takes him back to the old shack where she lives. As Ricky talks about the Hatfields, how much he hates them, and how they'll never allow him to be with the girl he loves, he makes a vow to end the conflict once and for all. Ricky begs Haggis for help and she is eager to activate her evil powers for the resurrection of Pumpkinhead, the powerful demon of blood and vengeance.
