PUMPKINHEAD (Stan Winston, 1988)
Thanks to Dr Wayne Jobson, king of bad movie rentals, for making me watch this awesome kick ass bad movie. Some punk city kids run over shitsville roadside store owner lance henriksons kid with their dirtbikes and then flee the scene, so he goes to the creepy old hillbilly gypsy woman and gets her to conjure up the town revenge monster to eat and eviscerate them. Which he does. His head don't really look much like any pumpkin I ever saw, but maybe they got them some special mongo down-home pumpkins in that part of the world.
It's the first time special effects dude Stan Winston directed a movie, and it fucking rules. Totally gnarly and flavourful and enjoyenating the whole way through. Why can't all bad movies be this good???
