Carve into the core of one of the most "vivid, stylish, atmospheric" (The Hollywood Reporter) thrillers of all time! With commentary by co-screenwriter Gary Gerani and FX creators Tom Woodruff and Alec Gillis, and a pulpy behind-the-scenes featurette, you'll learn how some of the diabolical effects were created, and you'll even get inside the mind of the creators of this freakishly frightening film!
When a group of rambunctious teenagers inadvertently kill his only son, Ed Harley (Lance Henriksen) seeks the magic of a backwoods witch to bring the child back. But instead, she invokes "the pumpkinhead" -- a monstrously clawed and fanged demon which, once reborn, answers only to Ed's bloodlust. But as the invincible creature wreaks its slow, unspeakable tortures on the teens, Ed confronts a horrifying secret about his connection to the beast -- and realizes that he must find a way to stop its deadly mission before he becomes one with it forever!
