‘Pumpkinhead’ Remake Reportedly in the Works at Paramount Players



'Pumpkinhead' Remake Reportedly in the Works at Paramount Players

It looks like another popular horror character is being resurrected. That’s right, a remake of the classic 1988 Stan Winston horror classic Pumpkinhead is in the works at Paramount Pictures’ label Paramount Players, reports the website BD today.

According to the site a script is complete and production is making moves. They also note that a director should be announced in the coming months.

I can already imagine the countless comments of “hard pass” being circulated around social media after the news makes its rounds across the likes of Twitter and Facebook. But why discard it that quickly? If the film ends up using a mix of CGI and practical effects for the creature, it could actually turn out really good.

The original film begins when:

When a group of teenagers inadvertently kill his only son, Ed Harley (Henriksen) 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.
