Not a terrible movie(especially compared to Blood Wings) but left wanting

I did enjoy the 1988 Pumpkinhead, without it being one of my absolute favourite horror films. While I didn't care for Ashes to Ashes all that much, it is at least better than Blood Wings. It does have some good points, Lance Henrikssen has a rather small role but he does do a great job with what he's given, the score is suitably eerie,the Romanian scenery is beautiful and atmospheric, Doug Bradley also gives a good performance with at least some charisma and there are a few nice surprising turns in the story. On the other hand, the rest of the acting is an uneven mix of over-acting and under-acting, some of the camera work is rather frenzied which further cheapens the already slapdash effects, the dialogue felt stilted and the characters I never felt anything for. The story does have some surprising turns, but of any effective scenes and such the only one to leave any lasting impression was the Ed Harley's Ghost sequence. The rest, not helped by some sometimes tedious pacing, lacked any true horror or suspense, and has lapses in logic. The titular character has his moments, but perhaps here too generic and ruthless, which was the opposite effect in the original. Overall, not as good as the original and has a lot of problems, but it also has redeeming values and is at least better than Blood Wings(then again a lot of movies are). 5/10 Bethany Cox

A Disappointment

After a city discovers that the local crematorium has been harvesting bodies for organs and skin, a small group decides to resurrect Pumpkinhead to seek revenge on the bad guys. But they're going to learn a valuable lesson about revenge and how it consumes you. I don't even want to try to be nice to this film, because in all seriousness it was just not good. Some potential was here: Doug Bradley is a great actor, and he did a fine job in this as the town doctor. The crystal meth dealer was a good character, and one of the ladies was fun to watch (though her lack of nudity was a great loss to the film). But that's about it. Let's say the story focused on the crematorium and the organ harvesting. That's a pretty good movie right there. Why even bring Pumpkinhead into this one? It wasn't necessary. And when he became "CGI Pumpkinhead" climbing the buildings, that was just silly. I'll take puppets and animatronics over CGI any day... this film being yet another prime example of why I feel like I do (and even my friend Jason, who is nicer than I am, couldn't stop from laughing at the poor quality). This film also stars Lance Henriksen, which I'm sorry to say is not a good thing. Once upon a time, Lance was a sign you were in for a treat. Even his role as Frank Black on "Millennium" was pretty cool. But now, it seems he's not concerned one iota about choosing decent roles... he'll just show up for any script thrown at him. Lance, you have outdone Jeffrey Combs in the amount of crap you're willing to wallow in. Not only are you doing this (expletive) film, but a "Pumpkinhead 4"? Please God, let this franchise die. Maybe you're the one person who has been watching the calendar waiting for this sequel and will really dig it... and it might be the last time you'll ever see Doug Bradley look thin. But I can safely say this was the most disappointing horror film I've seen in recent weeks (which means a lot when you review 6 a week).

Vengeance is no minor matter...

"Pumpkinhead: Ashes to Ashes" was actually the first and only of the "Pumpkinhead" movies that I have seen, so I was totally green about the story in the previous movies, and had no prior knowledge to the legend of the Pumpkinhead creature. I found "Pumpkinhead: Ashes to Ashes" to actually be a rather good movie, it wasn't overly scary, but it was interesting enough in the way that it had an interesting creature (or monster) stalking down people, and it had enough gore and mayhem to keep me interested. And actually it did manage to flare up an interest in catching up with the other Pumpkinhead movies and have a look at them. It was a nice surprise to see Doug Bradley (playing Doc Fraser) and Lance Henriksen (playing Ed Harley) on the cast list, as they are two of the heavyweights of the horror and pseudo-scary movies. The creature itself looked really interesting, sort of a diabolical mixture between the aliens from the "Alien" movie franchise mixed with a stereotypical demon of sorts. There was something late 80's/early 90's horror over this movie, and it worked out so well. There were moments in the movie where they used CGI for the creature, that didn't work out so well, though. Because the CGI rendering of the Pumpkinhead creature was laughable and fake, at the best. "Pumpkinhead: Ashes to Ashes" had a good story as well, because you get caught up in the storyline right away and the movie managed to keep me interested and wanting to see what happened next all the way to the end.
