Stan Winston's 'Pumpkinhead' Getting a Steelbook Blu-Ray from Scream Factory This October

Scream Factory just announced that a limited edition steelbook Blu-Ray release of Stan Winston‘s 1988 horror classic Pumpkinhead is heading our way on October 20th, 2020. We have full special feature details listed below, along with the cool packaging artwork.

The folks at Scream Factory are preparing a new 4K scan of the film from the original negative. All bonus features from the prior Blu-ray release will be ported over as well.

Synopsis: “When a group of teenagers inadvertently kill his only son, Ed Harley (Lance Henriksen, Aliens) seeks the powers of a backwoods witch to bring the child back to life. But instead, she invokes “Pumpkinhead” – a monstrously clawed demon which, once reborn, answers only to Ed’s bloodlust. But as the 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 the creature forever. A terrifying parable of revenge and possession, Pumpkinhead also stars Jeff East (Deadly Blessing), Joel Hoffman (Slumber Party Massacre II) and Kerry Remsen (A Nightmare On Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge).
