Good news for 80′s horror fans, Stan Winston aficionados and the Lance Henriksen devoted. Scream Factory will be issuing Pumpkinhead and Pumpkinhead II: Bloodwings on Blu-ray.
Per the studio, “Pumpkinhead will be a ‘Collector’s Edition’ (in fact, artwork is just about done) and Pumpkinhead II will be a separate release. No further details at this time but we’ll keep you posted on developments during our ‘Summer of Fear.’”
The Tracking Board has reported effects legend Stan Winston could see his 1988 Pumpkinhead rebooted!
The original Pumpkinhead was produced by the De Laurentiis Entertainment Group headed up by Italian producer Dino De Laurentiis. De Laurentiis went on to produce Hannibal and Red Dragon. For the rest of the franchise, the Motion Picture Corporation of America (MPCA) headed up by Brad Krevoy took the reins and is now back to produce the rebooted series, explains the site.
This could turn out to be really awesome, unless Pumpkinhead is CG.
