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.

THE STEPFATHER
1987, 89 min, USA, Dir: Joseph Ruben

Jerry Blake (Terry O'Quinn) tries to be the perfect husband and father, and he expects the same perfection from his family - when they don’t measure up, he murders them and assumes a new identity in a new town to start the process all over. Inspired by the case of killer John List, this is one of the 1980s’ most effective thrillers, powered by terrific performances by O'Quinn and Jill Schoelen as the increasingly suspicious stepdaughter.
