PUMPKINHEAD
1988, Park Circus/MGM, 86 min, USA, Dir: Stan Winston

Effects wizard Stan Winston made his directorial debut with this macabre modern folk tale. Lance Henriksen stars as Ed Harley, a grief-stricken father who asks an old witch in the swamp to bring forth a demon from Hell to wreak vengeance on the teen dirt-bike riders who accidentally ran down and killed his tiny son. That vengeance comes at a terrible price, as the link between Ed and the monster grows until the carnage threatens to consume them both.
