Why Pumpkinhead is the perfect Halloween movie
Corin Hardy directed last year’s spooky, atmospheric Ireland-set horror film The Hallow and has a number of projects on the horizon, from Paramount’s mercenaries-on-a-mission movie Hellbent, to the long-awaited remake of The Crow, to his own, new, original monster movie.
Hardy is also our first two-time Halloween movie-recommender. In 2015, he suggested readers check out Dan O’Bannon’s zombie film Return of the Living Dead — which remains a rock-solid choice, 12 months on — and this year he has been good enough to pen an essay in praise of the late Stan Winston’s 1988 creature feature, Pumpkinhead.
Take it away, Mr Hardy…
