In this installment, Pumpkinhead is summoned to avenge the younger sister of a man who's family has been caught in a bitter rivalry with the family of the girl he loves. The girl was killed when the brothers of his girlfriend discover their affair and mistakenly run her down while trying to attack their sisters lover. To my amazement, this film wasn't terrible. It is by no means good, but it is watchable. The stock made-for-TV acting complete with ridiculous Southern accents can both be overlooked in anticipation of a surprising amount of gore and practical creature FX. Unlike the third film, 95% of BLOOD FEUD is done within the frame, with very little CG used whatsoever. This more than makes up for the dry and retread revenge plot, especially after the computer FX were abused so heavily in the last entry. Pumpkinhead actually looks pretty good as well, and I would rate the costume design and functionality in this one second only to the original film. From exploding heads to severed limbs, there is also enough of the red stuff to please any gore fan. This is a far cry from the awesomeness that is PUMPKINHEAD, but for a direct to SyFy Channel sequel it will probably surprise most fans of the series.
