I was blown away by Pumpkinhead. Being a long time fan of Mr. Winston's works behind and in front of the camera. Stan Winston's Pumpkinhead was a work of genius that should have been revisted yes but, not by someone of far less caliber of the original creator. Pumpkinhead of the first film seemed so lifelike and down right nasty in manner and appearence was do to Stan's amazing animatronic demon. PH2 is badly noticeble as a man in rubber suit job.
The story was great (the background story not the ill handled plot) it added more to the legend when the research into the myth went on. The story of the myth itself was great but the story placed around it as the outer shell and ultimately lacking movie. It was made to obviously splash gore and sex into the film. The first left these elements out and stuck close to some of the old school formulas of horror. PH2 goes clearly for the 90's and mid 80's belief which still holds true to todays horror films I might add that sex and gore are the big draws to horror. Which in this reviewers mind can actually be a draw back to horror films.Read more ›
The original Pumpkinhead,although extremely underrated,is truly a ground-breaker in the horror genre and stays true to the genre (check my review).I was very excited about the sequel. I'm a HUGE fan of the original,so I just could not wait to see P2.I finally found a rental copy and P2 is quite disappointing compared to the brilliance and creativity of P1.However,the second time I watched it,it was actually quite enjoyable. The acting is pretty good (especially by Andrew Robinson) and it has a good story that's "refreshing" to P1.A tormented boy who's badly deformed and is killed by bullies,then returns as Pumpkinhead to exact his revenge.Very good. Pumpkinhead is still very scary and looks cool. The photography is very dark and adds plenty of suspense.The music is good and the film is overall quite entertaining.The ending is actually quite heartbreaking.Pumpkinhead is gunned to death just when he becomes good.I hate to admit it,but I actually cried when he died.You actually feel sympathy for him while he's on his rampage. P2 does have some flaws,though.The human characters are quite under-developed and the script is a bit weak (though the story is strong throughout).Some scenes are also very comedic (like when the present teens are together early in the film.)It turned me off,because P1 was very scary and suspenseful and P2,though scary in parts,is also a bit comedic is places,whereas P1 wasn't one bit funny.I sometimes felt myself not liking the film,but giving it a chance,it was fun to watch.Overall,P2 isn't nearly as entertaining as P1,nor scary,but I still liked it.I actually give it 3.5 stars (4 1/2),but I oddly don't have that option.Rent P2 to kill some time.Rated R for some violence and bad language.

This is not a bad movie at all. Pretty good story to it. Got some descent scares and good acting. I thought it was put together well and is worth checking out.Published on June 5 2004 by Laurie Strode

My advise to all the directers out there is to not make a sequel unless its as good as the 1st!
I will say that this is probably worth at least one watch!
