Two more cult classics should be hitting high-definition just in time for Halloween this year.
In an early announcement to retailers, Scream Factory will be releasing 'Pumpkinhead' on Blu-ray later this year.
When a group of rambunctious teenagers inadvertently kill his only son, Ed Harley (Lance Henriksen) seeks the magic of a backwoods witch to bring the child back. But when she tells him the child's death is irrevocable, his grief develops into an all-consuming desire...for revenge! Defying superstition, he and the witch invoke "the pumpkinhead" - a monstrously clawed and fanged demon which, once reborn, answers only to Ed's bloodlust. But as the invincible creature wreaks its slow, unspeakable tortures on the teens, Ed confronts a horrifying secret about his connection the beast - and realizes that he must find a way to stop its deadly mission before he becomes one with it forever!
'Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings' will also be released at the same time.
When five teenagers unwittingly resurrect a demon, nobody is safe from the hideous creature's gruesome rampage. But this monster is different - inside it dwells the soul of a boy murdered years ago. Can the evil beast be destroyed...without killing the innocent boy trapped within?
Specs and supplements haven't been revealed yet, but the Blu-rays should be available in stores this September.
