After killing an old witch by mistake, a group of teenagers (including “Punky Brewster” child star Soleil Moon Frye) accidentally resuscitate the demonic Pumpkinhead (Mark McCracken). Only now, he’s propelled by the soul of a deformed, murdered boy. With his mind on revenge, Pumpkinhead seeks out the people who brought him back to life, as well as the rowdy group of hooligans who caused the deformed boy’s death.
Jeff Burr is one of those guys who knew from an early age that he wanted to be involved with film. So at 14, he really knew that he wanted a career somehow in film.
He got started in filmmaking making Super 8 movies as a teenager, then went to film school as an undergrad in L.A., then dropped out after his junior year after making a short film called DIVIDED WE FALL. He worked for Roger Corman in the advertising department, worked on home music videos, etc. . . . and then inspired by indie filmmakers like Romero and Raimi, decided to make an independent horror film, produced by his brother (who raised the money) and Darin Scott.
According to Burr, filmmaking has no finish line. There is no “making it.” Filmmakers just have to crank ‘em out and keep moving ahead. But in the back of his mind, Burr knows he is lucky to have been paid to do something he truly loves.
