Coming once more into our mortal world, Twelve Months of Terror returns with its Halloween special on Pumpkinhead. My, it feels like a long time since we covered Carrie, doesn’t it? Perhaps that’s why I was hit by a wave of sadness over the fact this whole experience is drawing to a close. This would explain the bouts of hysteria I suffer throughout this episode anyway…

This month Louise Boyd and myself, RJ Bayley delve into a Halloween film other than Halloween (for once) and find something very interesting as a result.

We cast our eye over the not-run-of-the-mill teenagers that are there for the monster to hunt and investigate just how Stan Winston‘s background in special effects impacts on the visual qualities of the movie. Along with this we discuss how revenge has personally affected Louise’s life and her dollar teefin’ teachers, my fish’s poo, traditional horror taking a non-goth approach to history, Lance Henrikson‘s acting and our own prejudices against country folk and incest.

So join us won’t you, for quite possibly the most Halloween-y movie that isn’t Halloween.
