THE PLOT:

A group of thrill seeking teenagers accidentally cause a fire within the home of the old witch. With her in the hospital it resurrects a Pumpkinhead from it's sleep with two grudges to deal with, the thirty year old murder of a mentally and physically disabled teenager and the teens who harmed the old witch.

Now the Sheriff must piece together the clues and what the strange blood wings left behind by the creature means.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

Okay, I did enjoy the first movie even with the flaws in it. The second movie is just as good as the first movie, the cast does a great job. The creature effects are major cool and the story works for the most part. There are some character issues, I mean it's hard to cheer and worry about characters who would start a fire and flee to let an old woman to die. Plus what they did to that poor ugly kid was just wrong and illegal even then. 8 STARS

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd again, it's rare but it does happen. The design of the Pumpkinhead is so cool, and the cast does do a great job. So 8 STARS.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ CREATURE EFFECTS (Just as cool as the first movie.)
+ CAST (The cast does a great job.)
+ STORY (The story works.)
+ FRIGHTS (The frights are plenty.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- CHARACTER ISSUES (It's hard to worry about the characters who couldn't care less about their fellow human.)
- CRIME (The crime against someone different is just wrong and why the law didn't punish them upsets me to no end.)

...AND FINALLY...

- FAN BASED (If you didn't like the first Pumpkinhead movie, there is a good chance you may not like this one.)
