Pumpkinhead is the main antagonist of the 1988 American fantasy-horror film Pumpkinhead.
When a gang of bikers accidentally kills the son of small town store owner Ed Harley, he attempts to gain revenge by summoning a large demonic creature named Pumpkinhead.
Pumpkinhead is a tall humanoid figure with dirty brown skin. His body is emaciated and almost skeletal, his rib cage being visible through his skin. Pumpkinhead's legs are digitigrade and end in three-toed feet with sharp claws. Pumpkinhead has a long tail, two spikes on his hips, and two large appendages on his shoulders. His head is bulbous, like that of a typical grey alien.
