While Pumpkinhead received a limited theatrical run in 1988, it’s mostly remembered as a VHS release; the kind of little-known, low-budget horror movie you would take a chance on at the local mom ‘n’ pop video store.
Perhaps the most interesting thing about Pumpkinhead is that it’s the directorial debut of special effects artist Stan Winston. Best known for his work in films like The Terminator, Predator, Aliens, Monster Squad, and Jurassic Park, Winston won four Academy Awards for his groundbreaking work in the makeup and special effects fields.
Deadline Hollywood is reporting something that many have expected for a long while now, but it is no less painful to read. That’s right, Paramount Pictures has decided to remake the 1987 childhood classic, The Monster Squad.
If the project does indeed happen, Rob Cohen, who was a producer and executive producer on the original movie, already has high hopes to direct the remake. Considering that he’s emotionally attached to the old movie, you would think that he would be an ideal candidate to create a faithful reproduction here, but this might not be the case. Cohen does have plenty of directing experience since then, but with his credits including Dragonheart, The Skulls, The Fast and the Furious, xXx, Stealth, and The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, most Monster Squad die hards will shudder in fear at the thought.
On his production blog, director McG announced that Terminator Salvation has indeed wrapped principal photography and that it’s now well into its post-production work.
This is always a good sign that things are moving forward smoothly, you know, well-oiled machine and such. Now we just need to hope that not too many re-shoots have to be done; specifically for the ending.
McG said that a cut of the film was shown to stars Christian Bale and Sam Worthington who both seem to have liked where it was going.
While McG wants this particular installment to focus much more on characters and the storyline, he hasn’t forgotten what the previous films did for the world of special effects.
