We sure do miss ole’ Pumpkinhead. It’s been a long time since the revenge machine was summoned to do evil bidding. Luckily, it appears that a Pumpkinhead remake is still very much in play according to Rue Morgue.
Producer Peter Block went on record, saying that he is still in line to reboot Stan Winston’s revenge creature classic.
We have some exciting news that I’m not allowed to share yet, but that should be making its way out soon. PUMPKINHEAD is a movie I just love, and it’s very similar in some ways to THE SHED when you think about it. It’s about the pain you suffer vs. the revenge you seek, and that being even greater in some respects. And while the original PUMPKINHEAD is a great movie, I think that there is more that can be done with that idea. Sometimes I loathe remakes and reboots because I don’t see the reason for them, but PUMPKINHEAD is one of those where I believe that the story and the themes of it are so good, but there’s also a way of updating it where less focus on the creature, in the beginning, will add to a lot of the suspense.
Very exciting! This is one of the few horror franchises, I personally think deserves a reboot and still has plenty of places it could go narratively.
