Pumpkinhead (1988) As a young boy, Ed Harley saw an evil demon kill a man. Many years later, Harley and his young son are running a grocery stand in Nevada that is visited by six city youths on their way to a cabin. While Harley is away on an errand, one of the boys accidentally kills Harley's son with a motorcycle. Remembering what he had seen that night years ago, and what he had heard, Harley pays a visit to a reclusive witch who helps him invoke that demon - known as Pumpkinhead - to avenge his son's death. As he sees the youths being killed, one at a time, through the eyes of the demon, Harley discovers that a horrific price must be paid...

Movie Quote(s):
  • Ed Harley: God damn you! God damn you! Haggis: He already has, son. He already has.
  • Kim: [talking about Joel and Chris looking for Steve] They should be okay, right? I mean, they took the guns and everything. Maggie: God is the only thing that can stop what's out there, Kim. Tracy: [walks over to the drawer and pulls out a large kitchen knife] Just in case God doesn't show.
  • Tracy: Can't you stop this? Can't you call it off? Ed Harley: Nothin' can call it off... [lights flamethrower] Ed Harley: ...but I'm gonna send it back to whatever the Hell it come from!
  • Haggis: You're a fool, Ed Harley.
  • Bunt: [climbing into the back of Ed Harley's pickup] That old woman scares the piss out of me!
Movie Trivia:
  • This film, orphaned by the bankruptcy of De Laurentiis Entertainment Group, eventually garnered a spotty release when acquired by United Artists, which tested the film under the alternate title Vengeance - The Demon.
  • Although the FX team created the titular monster, Stan Winston was so busy with directorial duties that he was unable to directly supervise their work.
  • Because of Stan Winston's request, the screenwriters made both Pumpkinhead and Haggis (the old woman), much darker than in the original script.
