Stan Winston's Pumpkinhead is one of my go-to horror fables when Halloween season rolls around, with one of the coolest original monsters of the last few decades.
A remake of the 1988 cult creature feature is supposedly in the works from Saw executive producer Peter Block, but until then, you can satiate your misdirected lust for Pumpkinhead with an upcoming life-sized, screen-accurate prop of the vengeful beast from Trick Or Treat Studios. This massive 9-foot-tall Pumpkinhead collectible will be cast from the actual movie molds and released in time for All Hallow's Eve later this year. No details on price or shipping costs yet, but stay tuned to their Facebook page for future news.
“Pumpkinhead is one of my favorite horror films of the late ’80s, early ’90s,” said Block. “Stan Winston sits on that Mount Rushmore of iconic filmmakers because of his creature designs, and that was his first directing effort. The creature’s great but the emotional story is wonderful as well. I got the rights to Pumpkinhead, and hooked up with a great young writer called Nate Atkins, and we developed our script, which is really solid.”
Here's the official statement from Trick or Treat Studios:
Guys and Ghouls, we will have pricing information as well as shipping costs within the next week or two, so hang tight. The plan is to produce in lots of 5 and than put them up on the site for sale, ship those five and produce another lot of five, put them up on the site and ship them, etc. We are so happy to be able to offer these direct from the screen mold, they are amazing!
Check out the prototype below and tell us if you'd like to scare the stuffing out of friends with this fantastic cinema fiend.
