There's a family feud
between the Hatfield's and the McCoy's
but one of the members from each family
named Jodie Hatfield (Amy Manson) and
Ricky McCoy (Bradley Taylor) are very
much in love and try to leave town to
aovid being found out but Jodie's
siblings named Tommy (Calin Puia) and
Billy Bob (Elias Ferkin) catches them as
well as chasing after Ricky's sister Sara
(Maria Roman) and accidentally killer her
in the woods.
After Ricky finds his sister dead he
wants revenge and to be with Jodie
forever so he goes to the Haggis house
but the ghost of Ed Harley (Lance
Henricksen) tries to warn him of what
will happen but doesn't listen to him.
Haggis (Lynne Verrall) grants his wishes
and raises Pumpkinhead from the grave as
Ricky isn't thinking about what can
happen and finds out later on he can't
seem to control this demon as it tries to
slay the whole Hatfield family except for
Jodie since this thing knows Ricky's love
for her but if she gets in the way
Pumpkinhead may bend the rules a bit.
An interesting prologue
with a sheriff
shooting the Pumpkinhead figure as well
as a discussion between him and Ed Harley telling him that this isn't
over. It was a nice introduction to the
story in a low
There's many cheesy shots on a riot
during a wedding party with close up
shots on people rolling
down some staircases fighting and other
areas. However the riots didn't look at
We have a good conversation between Jodie Hatfield and Ricky McCoy making out and good camera shots on the
two of them. There's also a good
disturbing moments between two family members Tommy and Billy Bob by being rough
with Jodie looking like a
believable dysfunctional sibling rivalry
as well as good shots on them beating up
There's also good camera shots on
supporting character Sara McCoy by running away in the woods with Tommy and Billy Bob on her tail as well
as a good shot on her rolling on a hill
and a nice rolling action camera shot
towards a tree.
There's a good camera shot looking down
on Ricky crying after spotting Sara as a corpse.
There's a good shot on Ricky carrying Sara and the family running out
of their house crying as well as a shot
looking down on them and zooming away.
We have a nice moment with Ricky entering the old house near the swamp
with Haggis talking to him plus there's a good three
way discussion with Ricky acting
upset wanting revenge on the Hatfield's
and his love for that family's daughter
as well as Ed discussing
about revenge for the death of his son
which all of this looked very effective
especially when he tries
to plead to Haggis not to
resurrect Pumpkinhead. There's a nice
shot on the ground opening up with
There's a good moment with Jodie going to the old house and looking
through the windows and trying to call
for Haggis as well as climbing up the
giant clump where the Pumpkinhead burial
ground is and then falling down with a
good shot on her looking shocked and the
Pumpkinhead figure closing in on her with Haggis talking to her wickedly
that the Pumpkinhead won't harm her.
There's neat shots on this too.
We spot many good shots on Bobby Joe Hatfield and the rest of his siblings lighting up
flammable bottles and chucking it into a
house catching it on fire along with good
intense shots of a riot breaking out.
There's good conversations and arguments
between both different family members on how to
destroy Pumpkinhead with a good tense
moment on Sheriff Dallas Pope explaining
what happened to his brother 5 years
before what Pumpkinhead did as well as a
good shot on him unbuttoning his shirt to
show the scars as well as him being
emotional on all of this.
A good shot on Ricky looking up
evilly towards the Pumpkinhead figure and
speaking evilly to tell it to destroy the
A good discussion with Dolly Hatfield acting spooked in her room
about Pumpkinhead about to invade their
house with Jodie sounding calm
telling her they're safe.
We spot a good shot on the Pumpkinhead
figure in the woods staring at the house.
There's many great intense shots with Tristan McCoy being
dragged away and Jodie screaming in terror along with the other
people trying to fight this beast to save
their family member.
Many great shots with Pumpkinhead
figure slaying everyone in the house.
A good moment with Ricky staring evilly at the house with Jodie trying to convince him to stop
Pumpkinhead which looked very strong and
There's a good shot on Dolly near
a tree quivering with the Pumpkinhead
figure creeping up on her and Jodie screaming at it as well as Ricky trying to sacrifice his life struggling
with the Pumpkinhead figure as I found
this to be one of the best moments of
Bottom line is that this one seems
like it's a final chapter to the whole
Pumpkinhead series but we shall see.
There's nothing too special with this one
and didn't do a heck of alot for me. It
was corny in some spots like a riot
during a wedding party and situations
like that. However, it looked nice with
the main character wanting to resurrect
Pumpkinhead having a discussion on what
to do since this has never happened or
the witch Haggis being around Pumpkinhead
much afterwards and explaining to the
girlfriend of this troubled person that
it doesn't harm any of his loved one's.
The story was a little pointless with the
other moments not showing alot of action
except for a quarter way of the story
when this creature goes in to kill the
redneck family as it got exciting there.
Let's hope if another sequel happens it
will improve but by watching this film it
looks like they were running out of ideas
so this time the plug needs to be pulled.
The acting is okay
with some of the cast as lead actress Amy
Manson (Jodie Hatfield) does her part very well with
her nice girl next door type of looks
along with a nice personality with great
intense screaming and emotions too
proving to be extremely energetic to what
she had to do.
However, the lead make actor playing her
boyfriend whom is Bradley Taylor (Ricky McCoy) really
lacked with his energy when he had to
scream and cry not looking realistic at
all. He seriously needed improvement on
what he had to do. His energy was low when
he screams with his emotions. Yet he knew how to
show his evil expressions and speak
coldly so I will give him credit for
Claire Lams (Dolly Hatfield) portrayed her part
perfectly well as an innocent type in the
film. She was portraying a child and
looked too old for the part though.
Rob Freeman (Sheriff Dallas Pope) really pulled his part
together as a troubled sheriff in the
film showing good tense emotions with his
speaking especially telling people what
had happened to his brother 5 years
before and showed many good
characterisitics to his role.
Niculescu (Bobby Joe Hatfield) showed a good big guy type
of appeal to his part as well as a nice
deepness to his speaking to top it all
off. He was the best character actor I
found throughout the whole film.
Lance Henricksen (Ed Harley) returns once again
but doesn't seem as dark like in the
previous sequel yet a sympathetic type so
it was necessary on what was happening.
He did it just as well.
Richard Durden (Old Man Hatfield) really borught it out
with his nastiness playing a backwoods
redneck father to his family showing a
nice mean look to top it off as well as
his insane aggressions too. We have a nice vicious attitude with him by acting like a nasty redneck father
towards his daughter about the guy she's
dating and him disapproving of it as all
of this looked well performed. Another
worthy actor to mention as he can really
go far playing these kinds of roles in
other low budget horror films.

We have some good
low keyboard music along with the odd
light tapping piano playing and as usual
rusty sound effects with the odd pounding
too. There's the good ole harmonica
playing for the opening credits all
composed by once again Rob Lord.
