Beloved, weird, horror creature, Pumpkinhead, was designed by legendary monster creator Stan Winston. You probably know Stan Winston’s Oscar winning work in Jurassic Park, Terminator, and Aliens. Pumpkinhead, a cult classic about a bizarre, lanky monster, was his directorial debut after moving out of the special effects chair.
For all seven or eight of us with fond memories of this movie from our youth, Peter Block (executive producer of the Saw movies) has acquired the rights to Pumpkinhead and is planning a reboot in 2017. Peter Block has mentioned he wants to keep the practical effects that made Pumpkinhead so memorable, but no word on if Lance Henriksen (Bishop from Aliens) will make any sort of return to a starring role or cameo. Newcomer Nate Atkins is set to script.
