Default 'Pumpkinhead' - High-Def Digest Review

E has reviewed the Blu-ray release of Stan Winston's directorial debut. He says 'Pumpkinhead' is a terrifically memorable creature feature. The Blu-ray features excellent picture, strong audio, and a good assortment of supplements. This is recommended.

Correction needed on one part of the review. Lance was never in Alien, he was in Aliens.

Oh wait, I see what you did, he was in the Alien series, didn't read closely enough. Carry on.

To my surprise, listeners can't go with either choice: the upmixed 5.1 track or the original stereo design.

I bought the NSM mediabook for Pumpkinhead 2, so this one is an obvious must buy fill in.

I just preordered from Shout factory. I hope I can get the collector's edition poster. It was just slightly a little more than Amazon(with taxes). Ironically the Shout price is less than Amazon, but the shipping charge brings it in line with Amazon's price. But no poster with the Amazon one.

One of my fave horror films since i saw it in theaters as a kid.

does this remind anyone of a cross between Pet Sematary and Jeepers Creepers?

Lemme get this straight...it's got a commentary and 76 minutes worth of other bonus features - and over 90 minutes of HD-exclusive - and they each get two stars?

Really?

I don't wanna tell you guys how to do your jobs, but...just seems like you're setting up an impossible-ish standard for what constitutes a good set of extras.

Menois deducted three points because Shout failed to give the packaging a pumpkin scent. I think we can all agree that was a missed opportunity.
