I am ashamed to say I came in late to Pumpkinhead. I had watched scores of horror films in my youth, but somehow the -directed creature feature stayed off my radar. When I finally saw it a few years ago, I flipped for it. It has a really cool concept, a stellar performance from , and oh my Cthulhu is that monster mesmerizing!
Recently surfaced is this video from the Stan Winston School (coming to us courtesy of JoBlo) that goes deep behind-the-scenes of the film to show us exactly how that titular monster was brought to life. What's great about the video is that the brilliant craftsmen who created the creature are narrating the vintage footage with both insight and fondness.
Why the hell don't more studios utilize practical effects anymore?! Sorry, rant over. Take a look at the video below and let us know what you think.
