Pumpkinhead – Halloween Horror Month Movie Spectacular 2016 Day 8

.........................................................

Another movie that I’d been aware of for a long time but never looked into is Pumpkinhead. And I’m really glad that I finally got around to it. True, it’s another movie where teenagers are stupid and get punished for it. But for once a movie takes that concept and makes good use of it. While one or two of the characters in the movie might deserve demonic vengeance, most of them are simply caught in the crossfire. And what truly elevates the movie’s story is that the person responsible for unleashing the demon recognises that.

Beyond the story itself, the tone of the movie is excellent as well. It has the feeling of Appalachian folklore, of mountain magic that is almost but not quite forgotten. And it is filled with characters that are downright believable. Mostly. Those that aren’t, well, they make up for it by being entirely entertaining.
