Friday Night Frights

View Past Events

 

Around the world, only a smattering of the best horror films come out in theaters, and gobs of great gore go softly into the night, never to be screamed at on the silver screen. In the past, Cinefamily has reserved just the month of October as an excuse to make merry in the macabre and delight in an onslaught of slaughter; and once All Hallow’s Eve has come and gone, our poor patrons must lurch back to their bloodless daily lives, secretly wishing that the terrifying times never need end. Well, fear not, for now every month is horrific at the Cinefamily! Midnight is the witching hour, and every other Friday night, Friday Night Frights brings you the finest cuts in upcoming horror and gruesome genre cinema, as well as devious picks from the repertory crypt, all with guests galore.

One of the brightest spots in overlooked ‘80s horror is this backwoods horror monsterpiece from master creature designer/SFX guru Stan Winston (The Terminator, Jurassic Park, Aliens.) Distribution issues kept this film from attaining the following of the big franchise slashers, but Winston’s brilliantly realized titular demon would eventually find its place in the tortured psyches of horror lovers, and go on to finally spawn a franchise of its own. Inspired by an obscure poem, Pumpkinhead is a tale of redneck revenge that transcends into the realm of mythic fairy tale, anchored by a tragic and career-defining performance by genre legend Lance Henriksen. Add to that a classic horror atmosphere, a haunting, harmonica-laced score and a surprisingly strong supporting cast of menaced and menacing teens — there really is so much here to love. It even has a horrifying child death! An experience that only gets better with age, Pumpkinhead begs to be seen on the big screen, so join us, Haggis the Witch and Ed Harley down at the holler. We’ve got ourselves a demon to raise! Co-star Jeff East, plus Alec Gillis (creature co-designer) and Tom Woodruff Jr. (creature co-designer, Pumpkinhead suit performer) in person.
Dir. Stan Winston, 1988, 35mm, 86 min.
