What the Hell was that Movie?

During my youth, I spent a lot of time alone in front of the TV watching whatever movies were on Showtime and The Movie Channel. I watched a shit load of late night karate movies, but an alarming amount of monster flicks. One of those films revolved around a humanoid monster roaming thru town killing people. The method used for one of said kills involved the monster shoving its arm through a person’s chest, then pulling it back out. When the body was discovered by the local cop, he exclaimed, “the force required to remove your arm after that is impossible! No human could have done that!”…or something to that effect. In my mind’s eye, I see a 12-14 year old me watching this, which puts us at ’94-’96ish. However, being that it was most likely on a cable movie channel, it was probably at least a few years old by that point. I always thought that it was Pumpkinhead, but I was wrong…dead wrong!…God damn it. I’m sorry for that… Anyway, I have been on a hunt for the name of this movie for years, and have made it a goal to watch every creature feature from 1999 and before until I find it.

If anyone has any ideas that may end my (but mostly Amy’s) pain, please, let me know…

Below is my hell…

  1. Pumpkinhead is one of those token 80’s horror films that doesn’t get a great deal of praise. Anyone that watches this will realize it’s one of Stan Winston’s best.
