Pumpkinhead was directed by Stan Winston (Nightmare was a Wes Craven movie). He's the guy that does all of the special effects and costumes for movies like the Alien series and a whole TON of other stuff.
Anyway, i would have bought it except it wasn't a widescreen DVD. I don't know if there's another version out.
Actually I found out some more info. Winston turned down directing NOES 3 in order to do Pumpkinhead.
- Under frightful facts
And no there isnt a widescreen DVD available for this movie
. The movie was actually inspired by a poem by Ed Justin:
"Keep away from Pumpkinhead,
Unless you're tired of living,
His enemies are mostly dead,
He's mean and unforgiving,
Bolted doors and windows barred,
Guard dogs prowling in the yard,
Won't protect you in your bed,
Nothing will, from Pumpkinhead."
I have to second The Lost Boys, The Thing, The Others, and any Bruce Campbell movie
. I would also like to suggest Event Horizon. And for the kid-concious check out:
Garfield Halloween Special (Good call Greg!)
