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...
Cruel, devious, pure as venom. All hell's broken loose.

- 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.
