PUMPKINHEAD Coming To Blu-ray In Awesome Scream Factory Fashion!

PumpkinheadI love this announcement as you’ll remember it appeared on my first wishlist.  I’m a big fan of effects legend Stan Winston’s directorial debut.  Its a terrific throwback monster/effects movie that is filled with suspense and kills.  Its also got a great performance from Lance Henriksen.  Pumpkinhead truly is a unique experience and one that I’ve been pining to have on Blu-ray.  I would taken a barebones copy, but wow, I feel spoiled with Scream Factory getting it and treating it right.  Its got a slew of all new bonus features and I just can’t wait to dig into it!  Below you’ll find all the goodies and information about this release as well as a preorder link.
