Pumpkinead II: Blood Wings (1994)- Scream Factory Blu-ray
Revenge Never Dies! And with that tagline, we all bear witness to yet another film that seems completely clueless as to what made its predecessor so memorable. No, in Pumpkinhead II, we get Punky Brewster (Soleil Moon Frye), the dude from ROTLD 3 (I refuse to learn his name), Amy Dolenz, and, inexplicably, Andrew Robinson of Hellraiser and Dirty Harry fame.
So, in summation, no real story here to speak. The film has the basic set up of a slasher with the role of Jason going to Pumpkinhead. No vision, no interesting kills, no budget, and nothing that adds even a little comedic insight.
Scream Factory has brought this classic to us all in an amazing transfer that would be worthy of a film like, oh I don't know- Phantasm or Suspiria. Instead we now all have an amazing edition of Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings complete with special features including:
Interview with director Jeff Burr
Recreating the Monster Featurette with Greg Nicotero, Gino Crognale, and Actor Mark McCracken.
