Is there anything as exciting as stumbling upon an unexpected treasure? Over here at the FANGORIA Vault, we think so, especially considering the numerous cobwebs and skeletal remains we’ve swatted through over the years. Of course, sometimes “treasure” can also be an understatement, like in the case where we discover a gallery of amazing and rare stills from the set of the late, great Stan Winston’s PUMPKINHEAD!

Featuring one of the most awe-inspiring and truly terrifying creature creations in horror history, Winston’s directorial debut is a monster movie with the aesthetics and brutality of a classic folk tale. Winston’s SFX are expectedly top notch, but Winston works his magic as a director with stunning finesse and unwavering focus, aided by the fantastic cinematography of Bojan Bazelli, the intimidating physicality of Tom Woodruff Jr. and a creepy yet grandiose score from Richard Stone. It’s an underrated cult classic in the truest sense of those words, and hopefully, these pictures prove exactly why that cult grows to this day. So count your blessings and unleash your gaze on these gloriously freaky photos from PUMPKINHEAD!
