In any event, him bringing that up made me think of the many different arts Pumpkinhead has had over the years, from VHS art to foreign and stateside poster art to DVD art. I wouldn't be surprised if there's even more that i'm missing, but I wanted to share all of those different arts that i'm aware of, the good, the bad and the downright ugly. Elliot McHugh, this post is for you!
This is that original VHS art Elliot was referring to. Still had this in my collection up until a few years ago, but it seems to have vanished without a trace.
Tartan Terror's UK VHS release, which eventually became the same art for Tartan's R2 DVD release of the film.
CBS' UK big box VHS, with the alternate title of Vengeance : The Demon which the film sometimes went by back in the day.
MGM's stateside VHS release, which came out in 1995. They also put out a DVD with the same bland art.
Another UK VHS, again bearing the alternate title.
This is one of the original posters and it's some of my favorite art ever created for the film.
Alternate poster from back in the day.
Another original alternate.
Gotta love the German title of the film!
Oftentimes, foreign poster art was so unique because the artists would whip it up before ever actually seeing the film. I suspect that may be the case with this epic poster from Turkey.
Don't know anything about this poster nor can I find a picture of it that's not super tiny or blurry, but it looks pretty cool and once again utilizes the Vengeance : The Demon title.
On the DVD side of things, here's some highly uninspired UK art. Someone in the art department is a little too literal!
Ah, that's better. Much more impressive UK DVD art.
MGM's more recent Collector's Edition DVD.
This is the lenticular faceplate for that above release (i'm pretty sure?), which changed when moved around to make it look like Pumpkinhead was reaching out to grab ya.
Phew, that was exhausting. What's your favorite Pumpkinhead art? Leave a comment and let me know!
