Sex & Nudity
Sex & Nudity Reason
Barely any. Some mild flirting and kissing.

Violence & Gore
Violence & Gore Reason
The major gore is filmed just out of camera view, but bloody bodies of fall, impalement, and mutilation victims are seen. This can be very disturbing. Human on human violence includes brief shootings and beatings. Pumpkinhead cuts people with his claws, and throws them around. A teenage boy is graphically stabbed through the stomach with a shotgun. A 9 year old boy is run over by a motorbike and dies. When we get a closer look at the boy, some blood is shown. In the opening scene, a man is thrashed around and slammed into the ground repeatedly by a creature. The creature then holds up the man and it's difficult to tell what happens next, but it looks like the creature snaps his neck. A teenage boy is pulled away, and killed offscreen. We then see his mutilated corpse. His corpse is scratched, chomped, and covered in blood. A teenage boy is beaten with a blunt object by another teenage boy and it is unknown weather he dies or is rendered unconscious. A man is graphically shot to death with a pistol. A teenage girl is attacked by a creature and is then dragged away and killed offscreen. A child is hit by a motorcycle. The body is seen. This is very sad.

Profanity Reason
Moderate but infrequent; a few uses of the f-word.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking Reason
One main character drinks a beer.

Frightening & Intense Scenes
Frightening & Intense Scenes Reason
The creature known as Pumpkinhead looks very grotesque. It's gigantic and has big white eyes with no pupils. It has a large deformed head and putrid body. The creature may be frightening to younger viewers. Other than that, not many frightening elements other than a few jump scares. The whole movie has a creepy, atmospheric feel. The theme of the film sounds very haunted and scary. There are lots of frightening images. Pumpkinhead is not as gory as many other R-rated creature feature features, but still creepy and violent The summoning scene in which Pumpkinhead is summoned may frighten some viewers.
