Cruel, devious and pure as venom, MGM Home Entertainment presents a terrifying tale from the mind of legendary Academy Award winning special effects artist Stan Winston (Iron Man, Aliens) when PUMPKINHEAD Collector’s Edition arrives on DVD September 9! Inside you’ll find the full specs for the release, which are sure to make the uber-fans ecstatic.
The 20th anniversary celebration of late Stan Winston’s directorial debut stars Lance Henriksen (Aliens, “Millennium”) as Ed Harley, a storekeeper raising his young son in rural Nevada. When a group of inner-city bikers arrive in the small town on vacation, a tragic accident occurs leaving Harley’s child dead. Driven by a childhood demonic vision, he seeks the aid of a reclusive witch who conjures that same demon, Pumpkinhead, to kill those responsible for his son’s death. One by one Harley watches as the creature kills the wrongdoers and he quickly discovers that a horrific price must be paid. The Pumpkinhead Collector’s Edition DVD is loaded with all-new special features including commentary by co-screenwriter Gary Gerani and FX creators Tom Woodruff and Alec Gillis (Aliens vs. Predator-Requiem) and moderated by filmmaker Scott Spiegel (From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money), seven making-of featurettes, behind-the-scenes footage, a still gallery and more.

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!
