PUMPKINHEAD poster art
Years ago I had a number of friends that thought very highly of this film. I watched it once and was unimpressed. Very unimpressed. So unimpressed I thought my friends had lost their critical abilities. I mean come on! Have you seen PUMPKINHEAD? Great creature design does not make a great movie! And the friends that tried to convince me of this sucker's qualities were the same fellows who tried to tell me Ken Russel's GOTHIC was good so it's not like they had a solid track record on recommendations.
But recently I've been tempted to watch it again. My memories have dimmed and the details of the story are faded shadows. Was it as crappy as I remember? Maybe I should put it in the NetFlix list? Could I just be thinking this artwork is so cool the movie might not really suck?
