Bolted doors and windows barred,
Guard dogs prowling in the yard,
Won’t protect you in your bed,
Nothing will, from Pumpkinhead.
Dayum, that was quick.
What the heck, you trying to overload us with awesome reviews and FMV hells after we’ve had to wait for you to get better??!?
Yay for spoony!
Poor Spoony bum…I don’t know why everyone hates him, he’s not that bad
Man you are a video uploading FIEND this week! And it’s totally AWESOME!!!
/breaks into high-pitched dramatic almost-crying voice
Oh gosh… noooo! The Spoony Bum! D=
The review is still funny lol :D
you’re breaking the fourth wall! YOU”RE BREAKING THE FOURTH WALL!
Man, i loved the beginning. What would you call that, metareviewing? Defusing your crossover with Linkara as part of the crossover? Anyway, brilliant stuff
Classy review, Spoony. Just classy.
Good evening, Spoony, and fellow Spooners.
1. Something’s so bad that Spoony gets writer’s block? I didn’t even know that was possible. How did Transformers 2 unleash such rage that it could only be expressed by TWO Spoonys ranting for an hour, and this one makes Spoony so pissed that we can’t even get the Gate Cleaner?
2. Lance Henrikson’s accent = ;(
It’s like the story of Sisyphus. You collect the items only to have them taken away, so you have to do it over and over.
The RED WINGS? Are they affiliated with Cecil or just hockey fans?
This… Is just madness… And I love it, great job man…
But the Bum didn’t really deserve that dude. If it wasn’t to appease Rob, for he is God-Emperor and was amused by the killing of Bums.
The cop was Garek! Sorry, nerd moment…I’ll go punish myself now…
Space Mountain is my Penis.
Poor Linkara, that was hilarious.
Princess Bride ref ftw.
Aw, man… Poor Spoony. Sounds like hell on Earth.
Better luck next time.
Great Spoony…. I laughed my ass off at the Spoony Bum and the game itself… More than glad I could help in this review !
Wow, I have seen people get really pissed off before. Hell, I’ve seen how pissed the angry german kid can get, but I have never seen anyone develop so much anger and hatred for anything. This just causes me to ask the question that is probably going across everyone’s mind, and that is: WHAT WERE THEY THINKING!!!??? Good review, though I would have loved it if you were able to rip this game a new asshole
This review feels like a throwback to your old ones. Great job, of course. Spoony, you continue to dominate, and really deserve all the growth this site has gone through in the past year.
wow dude I could feel that hate
This game has rendered me blind…
Spencer, no, do not cry! You have some fans! Honest! Some of us love the three spoony stooges!
That was brilliant.
Spoony – breathe, mate. Think calm happy thoughts…then SMASH THE GAME WITH A HAMMER!
Good gravy, Spoony! A game the entire internet community abandoned? A set of instructions that didn’t actually tell you how to effectively play the game? I’m convinced. This is the Gate Cleaner’s punishment. THIS is the Blagole. QUICK, SOMEONE, LAND ON THE SPACE THAT’LL GET SPOONY OUT OF THERE ALL JUMANJI STYLE! LET’S MOVE, MOVE, MOVE.
I half-want to ask you to do reviews of Pumpkinhead and Pumpkindhead II to reconnect to the Gate Cleaner, just to cleanly tie off the arc and get SOME value out of watching those horrid movies, but you know what? I won’t. This whole experience obviously frustrated and scarred your very soul, and I would never, ever ask someone to go through that again.
Beekeeper. HAW. All we needed was a “Bees, my god” scene to top it all off. The Princess Bride reference had me rolling.
Loved the ending! Now I must track down another Me First & the Gimme Gimmes song!!
I want to buy that game off of you, specifically to figure it out.
Excellent review. I could really feel your pain and anger at the end there.
Spoony you are god lol :D
Most excellent review. (Try looking into the camera instead of looking at the little video screen though ;) )
I ‘ve never seen the Pumpkinhead movies… They seem shitty enough for me to put on during a bad movie night though. Thanks for the tip[ :D (and indeed Lance is awesome.)
Wow! That is clearly a horrible game, but Benzaie’s Sonic joke. *tut* *tut*
Dick move Ben, Dick move…especially after you interviewed someone at Sega who gave the legitimate reason for using the Wolfhog…
I think you found the ANTI-GAME Equation, SpoonyOne! Quick! You must destroy this abomination before Congress or Jack Thompson finds this and uses it to turn all fun games into UNfavorable, UNdesirable, UNcool, and ABSOLUTELY no point to them whatsoever pieces of trash!!! DO IT FOR THE SAKE OF HUMANITY!!! DO IT FOR ALL GAMERS EVERYWHERE!!!
Angry Spoony is ANGRY!!!
…also hilariously funny :)
I remember seeing a review for this game YEARS ago in PC gamer, and it was one of the worst games they had ever reviewed. It’s not surprising that no one ever made a FAQ for it.
Linkara is really going around the thatguywiththeglasses site
Who needs skits, your angry rants are always the greatest, Spoony!
The Linkara and Benzai cameos cracked me up though. Awesome job! I was laughing out loud.
I’m always up for more Linkara.
For what it’s worth, this is one of those reviews that earn hard-working folk like Spoony my deepest sympathies, and I wish to thank them for the sacrifice of neurons so that we may get a good giggle.
Dear sweet Jesus, man! The hate burned my eyebrows off!
Mind you, this is well-deserved hate, but now I need to go find an eyebrow pencil…
This is like a Lovecraftian horror of gaming. In the not-fun way. That… just wow. You should burn it.
All I can say is… my condolences.
I was really hoping you wouldn’t bring up Soleil’s breast reduction: even without getting into the debate about whether she should’ve gotten it done or the reasoning behind it, something about that whole story really depresses me, especially since it’s all everyone seems to talk about with her. Kind of like Lupe Vélez being primarily known for dying on the toilet (even though she didn’t).
But yes, this game does seem like one of those bizarre space-and-time bending exercises. It’s like the Necronomicon or the King in Yellow: it isn’t a game, it’s an unholy abomination designed to unleash confusion, frustration, resentment, suffering and, eventually, madness…
That’s not funny ha-ha reviewer rage, that’s real rage. Or you’re a very good actor.
I guess the only venue left would be to start tracking down phone numbers and pestering the people who made the game, but probably they didn’t really care at the time and have since forgotten everything about it.
I have to say, though, that I admire your dedication to all this. I’ve put less effort into things I enjoyed and was getting paid for. Bravo, sir.
You can watch pumpkinhead 2 on youtube… i will check it out!
PS just found your site you do a great job
Space Mountain is my penis.
Man what a horrible game, I think it’s best if we just turn our backs on it and never speak about it again like the kids in the movie should have with the magic thing.
Tragedy, ain’t it?
Pumpkinhead 2 did suck something fierce and that game…is horribifuckus. Also love the crossover/cameos. I feel your pain, Noah. I have played a horribifuckus game myself. It was called…Dr. Jekkyll and Mr. Hyde.
I liked the first movie when I was a kid
Dear god. I’ve been watching your reviews since me and my friend saw you review Robin Hood, and I’ve never, ever, seen you spout out so much pure vitriol for any piece of media you have reviewed since you started doing this. Holy shit, your sincerity of your loathing for this game wasn’t mere disdain, but crossing the boundaries into utter contempt. Damn.
That was a great reveiw . The game looks really bad. Still im curious to see if anything else happens when you get further.
It’s very very bad, but it seems pretty clear what to do, but it basically requires shit ton of trial and error..
From what I can see, you need to steal items, go use them to do what you need to do, and go back and put them back, while where they go is still fresh in your mind.
It is a horrible piece of shit though and not worth that time/work
you should try and punch them in the soul (if they even have one). I’m sad to say I saw the 1st bits of Pumpkinhead 2 on TV one day maybe around Halloween.
I think I rather play rifts or D&D over that game you reviewed. Wow poor spoony… You earned my respect by managing to make a review out of that mess.
Cool, never knew you were a movie critic, awesome!
Well….at least now you have learned to not put yourself into a Blaaag Olee !!!! You just might be put in one :P
@SteveJones313 – I was gonna say that!
I laughed so hard when Spoony flipped out at the end and threatened to kill the developers, I done that before with h so many games, but they puts their names in the manuel, crafty buggers.
wow…… don’t think i have ever seen spoony that pissed before.
I wanted to see the black hole sketches. I will see that game destroyed for this! Poor Spoony. Still a fun review,
whoa.. you went all angry nerd :L) next time you should get Brad (The Cinema Snob) to help with an FMV game
I’ve only seen the second one, but I fucking HATED it. The first one seems slightly less awful.
lol, wow. epic Noah. i think this is def the worst game evar. i bet AVGN wont even touch it.
A-Amazing. H-How did you make it through that shit man? I applaud you for making a review out of the big peice of shit. I saw we give him a trophy Engraved with “The man who had the balls to review the worst game he ever played, TheSpoonyOne”
O GOD! MY STOMACH HURTS SOO MUCH! I WAS LAUGHING WHEN LINKARA SAID BEE KEEPER, BUT PISSED MYSELF WITH THE SAD BUM! SPOONEY I FUCKING LOVE YOU BRO! BRO FIST MAN!
Wow. Dare I say it, I think you may very well have found the worst video game ever made. I’m amazed you made it through the entire review. Well done.
Shit this review got me interested in tracking down the game ad actually beating it.
I want to see what the fuck the game is about and how it ends.
I’ll take your word and video for not trying to get this piece of S*** of a game. I wonder what those people were thinking when they made this game?
I cannot believe there were no guides or even a wiki article for this shit. Not a damn trace of this game, other than what you have just shown Spoony. You could have walked away at any time man, but you just kept digging, and now you unleashed Pumpkinhead on us!
holy crap…I don’t think I’ve ever seen the spoony one hate something THAT much and be THAT pissed off at it…but then, i don’t think i’ve ever seen a game so intricately designed to punish you for playing before either…
…holy dammit christmas…that’s a lotta pain…
The first Pumpkinhead movie is actually kind of an endearing horror movie, in the same vein of Evil Dead 2 almost. The sequel isnt THAT bad, its bad, but its not the worst, its just “meh.”
This game shows all the initial signs of being horrible, its obscure, its hard to find. That means any copies that were purchased were likely burned in those miserable souls backyards.
Man, I watched Pumpkinhead 2, and I felt 100 IQ points dumber.
Males go though that Wiccan phase, too!
But this is your best review ever. I never laughed so hard!
There is some weird correlation between the amount of pain you suffer with games and movies and how funny your reviews are. That was one of your best. I’m still laughing. As for the comment above, I never went through that phase.
So you finally found a nightmare of a game, eh? Everyone has their personal most hated game, I think. Oddly enough, go play a good game now. It will seem so much better by comparison.
possibly one o your funniest reviews i was shitting bricks by the end
oh my god. This looks like you said THE worst video game EVER! Like The Pandoras box of video games.
Now I can’t stop laughing. Who told you to do this review?
I think you should kill the makers of the game and the person that told you to do this review.(with the exception of you of course)
Amen. Just hope none of the people in the back of that book ever die mysteriously. Cuz, you know. That’d be awkward.
This game exists? I think a part of my soul died. This is terrible.
Oh, and does anyone else think Pumpkinhead looks like some kind of fucked up version of a Xenomorph from Alien?
Wow, and here I thought you hated FFVIII, but after watching this review….I mean WOW…We feel your pain Spoony
Nice work Noah , keep this up and I promise you …one day you will be famous and perhaps have your own show on deep cable.
And this is why Spoony > AVGN. While James is left to impotently swear at bad games from the past, Noah can convey true, almost psychotic in this case, rage at the things that cause him pain.
That sheriff from Pumpkinhead 2 is totally Elim Garak from ST:DS9. The mannerisms of the actors are the exact same, no joke.
hahaha, truely epic Spoony! As much pain as it causes you, your best reviews always comes out of games you absolutely hate. I love it!
Well..googling for a few minuts all I found was a rumor that the creator and actors thought the game worked out better then the movie….
Awesome review, Noah!
On a side note:
“Red Wings” is a Hell’s Angels designation for any member who went down on a woman while she was menstruating. So that’s an interesting gang there in PH2.
Oh,and you could earn “Brown Wings” as well.
(Hell’s Angels info courtesy of Hunter S. Thompson’s excellent book ‘Hell’s Angels’)
Awesome review Spoony. And that trully does look like the worst game ever made… even worse than Superman 64, that game sucked but at least what you were supposed to do was always made clear to you. Sorry you had to go through hell to do this though, Happy Halloween!
I laughed my ass off at “…space mountain is my penis.”
Hey, it’s nice to see Spoony picking back up the minimalist approach again, even if it’s just temporary. It’s a good review, I love when someone has to review a movie or game, or whatever, that is so obscure that even the internet barley acknowledges it’s existence. It really makes the review all that more interesting, and that’s partly what makes The Cinema Snob so great; movies that aren’t even that far from the brink of being forgotten all together.
Good stuff, Spoony, you’re not too far from finding the perfect niche, but that’s only true in my perspective.
Crap. That sheriff character is played by Andrew Robinson… Garak on Deep Space Nine. I thought I recognised his voice…
Damn, you really outdid yourself here Spoony. Awesome, awesome review, one of your best in my opinion.
Oh my Spoony.. That was a good review, I’m sure you suffered a lot for us on this one. I’m impressed you managed to meet this deadline.
I hope you do stab in the brain for that piece of shit. I don’t think any jury in the world would convict you nor judge if they had to play through just half an hour of that crap.
Poor Spoony, sorry that your sanity was lost for our entertainment. We should all donate to get you therapy. Happy Halloween!
Spoony must have mellowed out now that he has his new place. In the past he would have destroyed the planet in his rage.
Though its a good thing he didn’t. The mice’s planet reconstruction budget is almost exhausted.
Wow, the things you do punish yourself, Spoony, I wish I could give you back all wasted time you lost from suffering with this game. Funny cameos by Linkara and Benzie as well.
I found a list a review scores at MobyGames and a German Magazine actually gave this game a 62 out of 100, meaning they actually thought that this game was passable! I have no words…
BTW thanks for not blowing up the world again :)
Was that a stealth Dr. Horrible riff I detected there, Spoony? Heh.
Wow, that’s some amazing dedication you have there, sir. Bought a shit game TWICE, researched it, watched two awful movies for it. You are a goddamn Determinator.
And hey, even if this review made me dumber, it was worth it for the end credits song. Gotta look that band up. :3
I’m familiar with Pumpkinhead (the movie). My father and sister are big fans of terrible horror movies (Phantasm, etc). I’m actually surprised when other people haven’t seen it. I always thought it was pretty common. Probably saw the movie 10 times as a kid. This game is just horrible though. Now I’m gonna have nightmares.
i love this review especialy the ending line “this game is so fucking unholy it’s so bad …god fucking damn it.” good god spoony i don’t know how you lasted so long to be honest.
You are right, this IS the anti-game equation. ………………………………………………….SPOOOOONNNY!!! QUICK, DESTROY THE FUCKING GAME, QUICK, NOW, BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!!!!!!
Spoony bum made me want to cry….=[
lol at Linkara, and overall amazing. =]
*sits in awe of The Spoony One’s righteous fury*
That…was intense. I have never seen Spoony so riled up before. It was almost frightening. In fact, I AM a little afraid now. What happens if, in some bizarre Rube Goldberg-esque series of coincidences, I am in a room with Spoony at Point A, one of this game’s developers at Point B, and me between them? I can just imagine the horror wrought that day.
Spoony: YOU! VILE CREATURE OF DARKNESS!
Spoony: I WILL PUNCH YOU IN THE FUCKING SOUL!
The Spoony One rushes forward, pausing only to obliterate the only object in his way–me
Spoony: You’re in my way, sir…
I think it’s oddly fitting that he tell us what he thinks the best game in the world is just before revealing what he thinks is the worst.
Normally I wouldn’t comment again so quickly, but I wanted to say that the little mini-rant about “It’s a sequel so bad it’s not even considered part of the canon” while holding up Pumpkinhead II in front of Highlander II was inspired. ;)
Possibly one of the best online reviews I have seen of late, on the basis that it both evokes a very strong emotion from the reviewer and features that elusive element of what might be called “journalism” in some circles. It’s clear that Mr. Antwiler pushed as hard as he could against this game and, unlike the others he’s reviewed, it pushed back with logic that defies this plain of existence as well as with the anonymity that humanity wrapped around the game in order to protect itself from it.
I suspect that the amount of mini-reviews Spoony output this month were compensation for the lack of comprehensiveness his Pumpkinhead review would offer – if this is the case then he’s severely underestimated his talent for rallying against a game on the basis that it has nothing to offer. I am now thoroughly convinced that this is now the worst game I have ever seen, and not just because of what Spoony has shown and commented on, but because of the lengths he went to in order to prove that there was more to the game (from which he marvellously concluded that the game offers nothing of any value to anyone, and rightly so). That really is what serious journalism is about, the extent to which a person will suffer to learn more about something, even if that “more” is the fact that there’s nothing left to learn about that something. That, my friends, is what we call “seeking the truth, no matter what”.
As a last note, I’d also like to state that I hope we get to see the Gatecleaner and his friends in a later review. Sometimes overacting isn’t a bad thing. ;)
I don’t celebrate Halloween because I’m BRITISH! (insert teapot here) But I wish Spoony and the rest of our American cousins a Happy Halloween. May your October 31st be better than Pumpkinhead!
I made the same scream after I read Eragon and Twilight.
*Sigh* At least your nightmare is over, Spoony.
Or is it?
Fucking A man I felt the same way after watching Gigli…Spoony I feel your pain man.
Oh jebus i actually seen the first pumpkin head!
Damn…I mean, just damn. I’ve seen a lot of bad games, I’ve seen what Spoony did in the past, and what the Nerd’s gone through, but I think the bar has been broken and shattered and torn to shreds and god knows what else due to this game. It honestly DOES seem like it’s some sort of vorpal non-entity that somehow defies every law of the universe and both exists and does not exist. It’s like a fusion of matter and anti-matter. It’s there, and you can hold it, but it contains nothing whatsoever.
Spoony deserves so many awards for this. A Guinness World Record for suffering the utmost torture and living, the BAMF award, the Dude You Got Balls award, and has suffered a biblical-level pain that no man should ever go through. From this day forth, no man is as manly, tough, or big-balled as the Spoony One.
Let’s hope you DO find the developers and bring them to justice.
In case anyone is up for a little torture, the second movie is on SyFy tonight, as of midnight central time. It’s a sad, sad coincidence.
The Gatecleaner is awesome!!! Great review Spoony you really did all you could for this game.
Wow, Spoony. I guess you do have a mouth, and you have screamed. I truely appreciate your willingness to come in front of the camera and straight-up tell your viewers that you have nothing, instead of postponing and postponing the video in order to desperately write something down. You have officially surpassed the NC as my favorite face on the internet. If that counts for anything.
But honestly, getting back to the reference at the beginning, this game does seem like the kind of torture AM might create for his victims; a BLT sandwich underneath an unbreakable glass box that will be theirs if only they can finish the first stage of the game…
dude I watched Pumpkinhead 4. I WILL NEVER RECOVER
Hey the sheriff is Garak from DS9. Recognized his voice.
I’m not sure if that was a written review or not (it seems to be though) but either way, your wonderfull at what you do.
On that note, normally I’d say becareful about what you said at the end there. But…I think its warented. No court would convict you.
Argh that really gave me a heart attack!!!
I can’t believe it… this game has broken Spoony! It has made him insane! Damn you BAP Entertainment, damn you to hell!
I also loved how Spoony called us perverts about Soilei Moon Frye yet goes on that rant about her.
Spoony, please tell me your girlfriend didn’t hear that!
Apparently someone was able to make it farther than you did in the game, and apparently it gets even worse as it goes along, such is the case at the end of the video here where the player died with absolutely no warning right smack dab in the middle of a video cutscene.
The weird thing for me was that Redwings was actually the name of my high school mascot. I’m not kidding. Well, this was fun to watch Spoony, great job. I hope you have a more pleasant Halloween. Maybe, wait until after the holiday to go see The Fourth Kind.
Ah, It brings a tear to my eye when for game as shitty as this, a line can be paraphrased from ‘The Princess Bride’ and not drag the movie down with it. In fact, it was so perfectly executed, I think it actually raised the Awesome Factor of ‘The Princess Bride’.
Hey! That’s Garak from Deep Space Nine/Larry (Kirstie’s dad) from Hellraiser as the sheriff in Pumpkinhead 2!
Damn that was awful. I was LOLing at the Book Keeper, though XD Let’s hope you recover from this game, which is the physical incarnation of the Blag Ole.
The witch at 10:42-10:46 sounds like Rem from Death Note.
Anyway, fantastic video Spoony, as always. And great cameo by Linkara
Don’t stab the makers in the brain, Spoony.
Punch them in the soul!
I want that as a t-shirt. I’ll stab you in the brain!
This game has nothing to do with the movie…rofl! Sorry Spoony! I am a fan of the first movie mostly for Pumpkinhead himself. I, of course, hate every single movie after it though. This game though man…holy shit. You’re right man. This is torture…that’s just amazing. How do you make something so bad?! :O
Oh well. Happy Halloween!
the opening of this review might be the most i’ve ever laughed at any review ever. this whole video was brilliant, but holy shit that opening was genius :D
Well, I just popped over to Moby Games to see if it had anything about Bloodwings… and it did! http://www.mobygames.com/game/bloodwings-pumpkinheads-revenge is the page. Doing a bit of digging around on the producers of this abomination I found that they worked on one other game together, a point-and-click FMV game based on the 1995 movie “Cover Me” called- Blue Heat: The Case of the Cover Girl Murders. Blue Heat contains nudity, language, sexual themes, and violence. Do I hear a future FMV Hell review in the making?
EPIC review Spoony, yeah that was a horrible game made for a horrible movie but at least you made a Halloween special, right.
I love this “non-review-review”.
“You are entering the world of… pumpkin heeeeeaaaad”
Well, it was only $3. Imagine if you payed full price for that shit. This game seriously makes no sense. At least Make my videos were what you expected them to be: making videos. Yeah, they suck, but still
Wow, we go from Spoony’s favorite game ever in Eternal Darkness to arguably his most hated gave ever in Pumpkinhead’s Revenge. The polarity and contrast between the two videos that are beside each other might make the universe explode.
I would still rather play this then read Wanted again.
That was such a great review!
My soul cries for you, Spoony. What’s left of it, anyway.
Someone at IMDB actually recommends this game
The page even has some instructions on what you’re supposed to do in this game. Well, something about getting allies anyway and key items…
Oh man awesome review dude, that thing looks like the ultimate suffering allongside deathwatch and the polybius.
Uh, what’s the music that plays when Spoony’s reading out the flavour text on the instruction manual? the really epic sounding one.
“Hey, lets run with scissors!” I can’t stop laughing.
A great rant. Absolutely loved it. Spoony getting punished that is :D
Well, I gotta give you credit for your determination and dedication Spoony.
Hilarious vid, hilariously bad game.
Holy Crap, the Sherif is the tailor/ex-spy from Deep Space 9!
Anyway, good review.
Am I the only one that thinks this game looks good?
Wow. I’m feeling genuinely sorry for you now. I can understand how you must feel after being forced to track down two copies of a game that is incredibly hard to find and having to sit through two horror movies only to try and make any sense of this awful game. And on top of that the game forces you to watch scenes from the movie again.
I can only hope you won’t have to put yourself through this much pain and suffering to make a video ever again.
You, sir, got balls. Don’t let anyone convince you otherwise.
Me First and the Gimme Gimmes are the greatest Cover-band ever! And they say so themselves!
Oh, nice review. Although I was a little bit disappointed at the beginning because of the missing continuity, but that Linkara bit was hilarious! “I am.. THE BEE KEEPER!!”
…bees… my god…
I thought the floating eyeballs and albino fetus demons were kind of scary. Tragedy ain’t it?
This is the best video review of anything I have seen in months.
Salud, sir, SALUD!
What great mental strength you’ve got Spoony! You have proven that you’ve tried everything to grasp some kind of goal in this game and yet the minds of us all are turning up blank. These developers have forgotten the number one thing to design in a game; an effin’ goal!
Not the movie(s), not the instruction book and not even a tutorial or any info in the game as it starts up? This game must be one of the master of the eleventh circle of gaming hell! :o
I have the same hate and malice for Neon Genesis Evangelion, so I have to say I feel your pain.
Hey Spoony, great review, I loved it.
But… why do you keep looking to the right during the review? Its really disturbing.
It almost looks like you are being forced to review this shit at gun point. Really, like theres someone at your right, behind the camera, pointing a gun at you and telling you what to say.
Other than that, one of the best reviews yet. Very angry and nerdy xD.
@ Andrew Michael
Yes, I’m afraid you are. No worries – the doctors and the nice men with the jackets will be round to pick you up shortly =p
I remember there was a review of this game in one polish computer game magazine – with walkthrough even. It amazes me that someone actually had the BALLS ans sheer STUPIDITY to waste their time just to play and finish the game.
I actually have vague recollection of reading a bad review of this game–it mentioned how bad the movie was and labeled the white creatures as “schmoos”.
By the way, I don’t blame you for failing to show us the GateKeeper.
Salem makes 50% of their yearly income as a town though tourists visiting during October so I can’t blame the mayor for wanting Pumpkin Head to go on a killing spree even if it is a little demented.
The original movie “Pumpkinhead.”
Yes, I will admit to having enjoyed that movie quite a bit. It was up there with “Near Dark” on my list of “Movies I liked that people from “Aliens” were involved in.”
The second one was shit, and I never bothered to follow the series any further than that. I didn’t even know there WAS a game, truth be told.
Good stuff, Spoony.
Yep, broken_chaos, it’s Andrew Robinson! I thought that face looks like Garak! Hey, then he is the best actor in this movie, not George Bush’s cousin or whoever.
Good to see you back on top form after your illness Spoony!
One of the best FMV hells yet.
As for the game, I think it’s blatantly obvious what happened here. Some crappy game design studio wanted to make a Doom clone but the entire thing was halted mid-production, probably because everyone involved realized it sucked. Then someone tried to salvage the wasted time and effort by splicing whatever they had of the game code with Pumpkinhead footage and trying to haphazardly pretend it’s a finished product actually affiliated with the movie in certain way. Off course everybody with at least half a brain noticed right away that the final result was a mutilated abomination without any hope of salvation so they probably just said – fuck it, let’s release it, perhaps someone will be stupid enough to spend money on this.
Kudos, Spoony, for giving us a glimpse of real horror on Halloween.
I feel bad for the actor Andrew Robinson he was tha BOMB! in Star Trek DS9.
The running with scissors gag, seriously comedy genius!
What Spoony doen’t know is that is sanity meter ran out…and he still is in “THE BLAGHOOOLE” bwahahahaha
Or do you really think a game so bad could possibly exist in the realm of the living?
Best review, done by anyone of anything, in months.
This was a great FMV Hell review! Nice one Spoony!
I am kinda glad that you decided to drop the gatekeeper because he would just get annoying if he was to keep poping up in every review.
One question. What is the music you use when you are reading the EPIC instructions ? I have noticed it many times before in other rewives such as the ultimat warrior review. That song is just epic! xD
Its from the Army of Darkness OST.
Very good review. I woke up to something special, and it wasn’t eggs.
Sweet, a Princess Bride reference.
This is absolutely nothing like pumpkinhead movies. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!
I love how Spoony throws in all these old school wrestling references in his reviews. Space mountain! Woooooo!
Wow! I did’nt even think something worse then superman 64 could even exist!
I have to say, Spoony, I’m shocked that you had never seen or heard of Pumpkin Head before now. The original movie, at least, was a pretty big deal for B-grade horror movies, and even most people I know who don’t watch a lot of horror know what it is. I’ve seen all four of the movies myself (yes, there were three sequels), and while the first is the only one with any real value, the third and fourth are at least not nearly as bad as Bloodwings. Lance Henriksen is in both of those, too, as the ghost of Ed Harley (his character from the first movie).
Anyhow, yeah, terrible game. I’m guessing this was one of those situations where someone had made a prototype for an unrelated game, and someone acquired a movie license and just decided to mash the two together. Good review, FMV Hell is always a good laugh!
Aw…. Spoony… Well people hit tough times, writers block and everything. I was kinda hoping for a funny review like that, but thanks for the effort anyways. Shit happens, and you just hit a wall. But you’ll bounce back man!
You know there is Pumpkinhead 3 and 4 that you short of miss, yeah….there is.
But It follow up the very first movie but the problem is that Pumpkinhead didn’t look like Pumpkinhead at all, If you ask me It look more like a mad cat than the original Pumpkinhead. But Pumpkinhead 3 and 4 are good but Pumpkinhead look very bad, take my word for It…..
Wow! AVGN levels of hatred going on here. Can’t blame you though, the game looks like shit.
Love the end bit. You could practically feel the hatred seeping out from the screen.
give us the names so we can help take out the trash.
When the game tells Spoony to bring the items, did
Another great one by spoony
Sorry, little problem with my computer.
I was saying: When the game tells Spoony to bring the items, did somebody notice the dots on the compass ?
One of them appears to be brighter than the others so it could be the direction he needed to go.
Oh well, excellent video.
I laughed so hard at the sad Bum and your raging at the end (which reminded me of your Transformers 2 review).
Keep up the good work.
Oh…my…god…*dramatically removes glasses* I thought I played some bad games in my time but that one takes the cake and shits on it. Cake with shit for frosting, yeah that describes this game pretty well I think.
Wait, the developers gave out their names?
Well, it looks like SOMEONE wouldn’t mind having a Death note, right about now. XP
Somebody should Let’s Play this, so nobody else has to.
@ 173: to be honest, AVGN hasent gotten angry at a game all year, his jokes have been lame and generaly, hes lost his touch. i wish he would just take a look at his original material and realise where he has gone wrong.
anyway, this was a great reveiw, had me laughing as always :D ive played some bad games, but that, unholy shit-fest, takes the biscuit.
Wow, is it weird that I’d actually seen the Pumpkin head movies before? It just made me go, “What? What does that have to do with the movies?” as soon as the game footage started. But I’d never seen number two. This was a great review, I was thoroughly entertained. I love the cameos, and the Princess Bride reference cracked me up.
That was really FMV HELL. Kudos, absolutely.
this review…..”tragedy ain’t it ?”
wait, I figured out what the kids meant by ‘return the items to the scene of the crime’!
You got these items from the movie clips, right? That means you should jump BACK into a movie clip before the time runs out!
….and I take it, nobody cares. heh
It may not have been “clever funny” but the sense of frustration was well portrayed and the Linkara, Bum, and Benz cameos were great. My only gripe is this was one of the only times I can remember when Noah seemed to be consulting his script while shooting (he really seemed to be glancing away from camera a lot) but maybe that was the only way for this review to not just be an endless string of profanity. Overall, quality.
I like Spencer, leave the Bum alone!
Well what did you expect from a game based on a shitty sequel to a decent horror movie Spoony! Especially since its an FMV game. Still this is pretty funny review but at the same time very disturbing, mainly at the end during your chaotic meltdown.
maybe the item you picked up was already stolen and you objective was to place it in proper “portal”
“I WILL FUCKING KILL YOU!!!”
Awesome. Such anger.
Now the question is, will Spoony do a commentary on this video? Is 25 minutes enough to get all that rage out of his system?
I also have to wonder if he’d hate the game so much if he didn’t have to work so hard just to end up accomplishing nothing with it. It doesn’t seem like THE WORST GAME EVER to me, but if I had to buy the game TWICE, scour the Internet to find nothing on it, and purchase (?) both Pumpkinhead movies for some background info that isn’t there, a mediocre game could become a nightmare of Lovecraftian proportions.
That part with the Bum was really sad, the rest was awesome
For some that may be saying that it’s not the worst game ever, there are more annoying games, which stories suck, graphics suck, endings suck. Well think about this: this game is SO BAD it DEFIES REVIEWING!
Even the guy on Ytube who seems to have gotten pretty far into the game got killed by pumpkinhead in a random movie clip for no apparent reason and logic.
There are games that seem worse but you can theoretically beat them, while this… WHAT? What is this?…
Ohh DUDE. I was seriously squirting tears out my eyes at the “BEEKEEPER!!” part.
Spoony, you are amazing. Just by a fucking mile. What a treat for Halloween you’ve given us!
Wow. Don’t worry about production values Spoony. this was one of your best reveiws yet. That game sucks so much it speaks for itself
What is the name of the soundtrack that plays while he reads the instruction manual?
It’s games like this that make me SO glad I’m not a game programmer. Because that way, I don’t have to be killed by the Spoony One. We still have to watch for Doctor Insano, though.
Tragedy ain’t it
You poor, poor bastard. Burn the game with cleansing flame!!!
Please stop looking at the screen on your camera! It was distracting the way you kept looking off to the side through the entire review. It’s like you keep checking on your performance or something. Just rant, man! That’s all we ask for.
Keep up the good work.
wow, what a horrible game XD you poor bastard…
by the way, you said it was hard to find with the box and the manual still intact. how much did you pay for it?
I think the most terrible thing about this game is that now more and more people will know about it and maybe track copies of it, and the pain and the rage will spread ! Oh my god spoony, what have you done ?!! There are things that are so horrible that mankind has to ignore them !
Oh, and great review ! thanks a lot for going though that for us … maybe you should have totally canceled the review, but then again we wouldn’t have imagined the horror …
Very impressive! Talk about a snapback! Such anger and raw emotion… I was highly amused.
Absolutely amazing dude, you had me in stitches laughing…
It’s like Spoony taking a slice of the hilarious pie that AVGN used to hold. (Emphasis on the past tense)
Find some more terrible games!!
Damn, Spoony, you’re sexy when you’re angry. Wink.
Classy review, man. Way better than I could have hoped. I just hope the board game reviews are still going on, but either way that was a very good review. Thanks!
Wow. Just wow, it’s amazing to find someone else who attempted this game! Good on you my man, though on the other hand, I feel your pain! I’ve yet to meet or hear about anyone who beat this game.
Hey spoony or Noah how much would You be willing to SELL this game to me?
Theres a few things I want to try and I think you basicly have really given up. But overall I do wounder if
Useing the items on the pictures work, or reuseing the blue crystals work on the pictures then somehow you can use the items again on them.
Overall I’m glad You still went though with it and ya to find a game that You could not figure out is a shame. Because even with the book it failed to please You. However is there any way to hack the game apart to get all of the voice clips I wounder. Maybe theres a shread of hint.
Ill donate some money for this goal. And While I don’t think youll view this if anyone does that knows the Spoony One pelase tell him that. Because as a gamer…I really want to figure this out.
He forgot about the X-Files CD-Rom game that was great for FMV reviews although Spooney seems to think it sucks for some reason which I don’t know why as it had a good story, full cast from the TV series, good action scenes and investigative point and click sections as well as using good inventory of items tape analysis, lock pick, digital camera, etc encompassed the feeling and atmosphere of the TV series better game than Ripper in fact probably the best FMV game there was.
Guys, check out “Pumpkinhead Blood Wings in 5 Minutes” on Spoony’s Blip page …OMG!!!! Spoony proves yet again that the best humour comes from pain! Noah is without a doubt the funniest guy on the interwebs.
5 Seconds, I mean.
Benzaie cameo ftw
Holy Shit! The Sheriff in Pumpkinhead 2 is the dad from Hellraiser!
if you have searched it in mobygames.com there is reviews there not something fancy but a few words, and for anyone who wants to know the list of the unholy pepole how created this vile crap is there too.
This was probably one of the best spoony video I’ve seen in a long time. Not to say that the others weren’t good but this one was full of awesome!
Btw, is it me or did the sherif looked and sounded a hell of a lot like that cardassian from Star Trek Deep Space Nine?
i saw this movie on upn and on the sifi network, multiple times, their was even a pumkinhead 3!!! i geuse that was before i realized the sifi network would screen the worst shit to ever hit home video , shit like
Death Tunnel (2005)
i dare you ,
any of you brave souls to review that !!!
This was the one Pumpkinhead movie I actually turned off midway. The third and fourth were pretty meh – especially the third, because Pumpkinhead was done with very poor CG.
Good job for at least trying this horrible, horrible game. :-D
oh my god, if this is the shittest game that is saying something. It’s beat out Microcosm. I think there’s something wrong with the TGWTG reviewers that happens during October, they seem to go insane.
It was awesome how completely nutshit you went on this game, I’d like to see more of that.
The name of the actor playing the sheriff in the movie is Andrew Robinson. He also played the bad guy in “Dirty Harry”. Anyways, this looks like the worst game ever invented. Even doing an actual review for it is probably giving it far too much credit than it deserves.
Excellent video Spoony, I personally look forward to all the skits you do to spice up your videos, like all the asides with doctor Insano, and all that stuff with the gatekeeper, but nothing quite brings across how much a game sucks like pure rage. Your violent fuming is just as funny as it was when you got started with these reviews.
Still though, what mystifies me about this game is why it was even made. If Pumpkinhead 2 was a direct to video release that no one cared about, why make a video game to ride the coat tails of a movie that has none? Did everyone at BAP games get blasted one night, then awaken the next morning to an ripping head ache and a contract they just couldn’t get out of? Or, more likely, did they just never sober up enough to realize they were making one of the worst games ever created that had absolutely no market. At any rate Spoony, you are awesome for putting up with all this bullshit for our entertainment. Keep up the great work.
My god this game is the king of FMV hell. 90% of the FMV’s are from the movie. The other FMV’s that is not from the movie are the intro, when Pumpkinhead kicks the players ass, and maybe (If anyone can beat this carp.) the ending.
has anyone ever beaten this? I wanna try now :)
Hey, I have that same A Better Tomorrow poster in my cubicle! Awesome.
Was I the only one to realize the Sheriff from the second movie is Deep Space Nine star Andrew Robinson (Garak). Ya I didn’t think so heh.
I actually found two reviews on its imdb page. One guy has the balls to claim that this is a good game, and the other says it’s reasonable for its time. This thing doesn’t look reasonable for any time. It sucks now, and I can’t imagine it didn’t suck in ’95.
Great video anyway. The “I am the bee keeper” thing cracked me up.
This show was bought you by HORNITOS.
Spoony, this will definitely be one of your Crowning Moments of Funny
The Gatekeeper! Love him as a reoccurring character in your reviews…
Hilarious–thanks for posting it. Happy Halloween!!!
HORNITOS are annoying,but nowhere near as rage-inspiring as the Ugly Mannequin Bitch.
LMFAO. Space mountain is my penis made me laugh so hard..
What the. NOOOOOOOOOO! The review is gone! NOOOOOOO!!!!! (Throws his arms up as the camera pans out from the earth which explodes)
Damn Spoony, you definitely took one for the team this time. I hope someone actually gave -you- money to take that game off their hands. We don’t deserve the suffering you take on for the sake of our entertainment.
But it is entertaining, so keep up the good work.
I can’t believe the internet would turn it’s back on this. Hopefully you have raised awareness, though apparantly not enough at the moment.
The only thing I can find for the game was on this list of MS-DOS games
All it has is the name on the list. It doesn’t list any information other than it just being a MS-DOS game. There is no description, there is no release date, there is no developer, there is no publisher. It’s just a name and nothing else.
. . .
No, that’s all I’ve got. Just “Damn”.
Check out the reviews for the Pumpkinhead PC game on IMDB.
The spoony bum is awesome leave him alone!
You have to see this video you can somehow make it to the Gatekeeper that you missed.
That game seems to be the bane of everyone’s existance. The entire world feels cheap and dirty just for knowing it exists.
Also, it should be mentioned that PUMPKINHEAD was also directed, in his feature debut, by makeup effects maestro Stan Winston.
Keep up the great work, Spoony!
I love this game………………………………………………………..
hate those commercials in the beginneing after replaying the movie becouse it dident start >_>
love the review as always ofcourse
Hey Spoony, i actually played this game when i was a kid (:
Did he say “horse shit” or “whore shit” at around 15:40? XD
I did a LexisNexis search for the Pumpkindhead game. The results that came back were sparse, but the two small reviews I found from 1995 expressed the same level of dismay with not being able to figure out what to do.
Space Mountain is my Penis
Spooney’s catchphrase now? Cus that needs to be on a t-shirt heh
So that was the noise I heard the other day! :-D
This game is even worse than Big Rigs. At least Big Rigs was nice enough to let you know that it wasn’t worth playing 2 seconds in.
Awesome review,probably the best one you’ve made yet.I can’t even imagine sitting through a game like this,I know my computer would bear the brunt of it.And,the cameos were awesome as well.
The Brotherhood of Steel part made me genuinely lol.
That whole segment with Linkara… fucking epic. My sides have split. Absolute genius!
But wait! The GAME must be Pumpkinhead’s revenge itself!
Just saw the in 5 seconds version of this (can watch it off his blip.tv account)
Fucking brilliant. This review is also amazing =P
This review was just a bit funnier then the game you reviewed. Really, not funny. Too bad.
Stop right there criminal scum! Your goods are forfeit, return them to the chest or face the consequences.
Heard you like DS9? Well, the sheriff in PHII: BW is Garak! Also Scorpio from Dirty Harry.
It’s just that…you didn’t mention…so I thought I’d…eh forget it.
LOL I rather play again Catacomb 3d series, than this horseshit. Great job Noah!
Very good, but after that screaming scene, please don’t look on to the right of the camera, IDK either if you’re reading something ,or watching into the screen of the camera, but its really funny, if you want to show emotions try to watch into the camera, k, thx..:))
I’m so sorry, that game is pure torture!
Hey I recon you should give AVGN a call Haha
hahaha.stab them where?i dont think any of them HAVE that body part!
Forget about my latest comment. This was actually very funny , But a very stupid game.
hahahaa good stuff spoony
I watched this several times. One of my favorite Spoony reviews.
Everything was good BUT the part with Linkara. Really, man. You should take a (very long) break from the TGWTG team. They have a negative influence on your work. While you were always genuinely funny, now it all turns in to crappy ‘LOL SO RANDUM XDDDDDDDD’. I’d really like to have the old you back – no Dr.Insano, no lame skits with other reviewers, just good old Spoony making fun of bad games and movies. And I doubt both of us want you ending up with making unfunny Chuck Norris jokes. In 2009.
Negative influence? I’m not sure where RawketLawnchair is coming from.. all the build-up and references, to me, make your work more cohesive, more than just a guy in a chair giving his opinions. You’ve built up a reliable network of resources, and I think that helps you far more than hurts.
LOL That Made My Halloween Weekend. Happy Halloween Spoony!
And you thought Final Fantasy VIII was bad. But really it looks like this game had potential. Just a bigger budget and a bit more time. Hehe just kidding. Yeah those dudes actually wanted to be associated with making the game wow. Probably don’t know how to beat it themselves.
Man, that Sheriff was Andrew Robinson! I love Garak.
You fool! You broke the seal placed on that game. We spent years eradicating that piece of garbage from everyone’s collective conscience and then you brought it back. You do not know what you have done.
WOW. This is one of those games where you’re left shaking your head and asking yourself “Who the HELL thought this would be a good idea?!”
That said, great review. I always love the crossovers and stuff :)
Great video man, I found it very funny.
I like how on your brief image of the movie’s imdb page, Soleil Moon Frye’s entry link on the cast roster was already visited. Great review, one of your best. I feel a little bad that you had to subject yourself to such an awful awful game though.
o_o… HOLY FUCK!!! Noah, are you serious!? Dude, I haven’t seen you this pissed off since the climax to Final Fantasy VIII! Here’s hoping Ripper doesn’t piss you off this easily…speaking of which, is that one of the things you’re working on right now? ‘Cause I actually wanna see what happens after Joey Falconetti tells Quinlan to meet him at that hospital place…other than the blatant fact that it’s shitty FMV game writing.
I have to say there truly are no words for this game, I find it hard to believe the game had a playtest… Well now I think about it, it probably didn’t
hell yes bookmans!
you should stop playing these terrible FMV games and continue playing your other less terrible FMV games like Ripper…
when the heck is the next one gonna come out anyway?
Space Mountain is my pants.
…Lol. Awkwarrrrrd~ Good stuff.
I just want to add my voice to the anti-team up and regular character chorus. The review was funny, and they are consistently so, but there’s something almost incestuous about having those other guys, some of whom are presumably amusing, turning up in every second review. I come to this site to see Spoony, not those other critics. By all means do the team ups, but perhaps they should be limited to explicitly team-up based scenarios, like the “Alone in the Dark” commentary?
Anyway, don’t want to sound over-critical. If anything, I’m actually saying that you, Noah, are quite enough to grab and retain an audience, and you don’t do anyone any favours with the slightly gimmicky team-ups and characters.
Yay! Andrew Robinson! The only other movie I recall seeing him in was Cobra, the 80’s Sly Stallone flick. Of course, the geniuses behind Pumpkinhead II waste him by having him play someone who isn’t a conniving weasel, which he does oh so well!
I loved this review when it actually got down to the reviewing part. I skipped over the bit with Linkara because I don’t care for crossover stuff very much.
Only Spoony’s got the guts to review horrible atrocities like these. And that’s why he’s god tier among internet critics.
I really feel your suffering for this piece of crap.
I thought that “Make that Music Video”-games with Kriss Kross where really the bottom scraping of the barrel but this seems to have topped it… Great research and great video in general. It made me laugh and at the same time feel sorry for all the pain you had to go through with this game.
Keep the good work up Spoony.
I have seen this video more than a dozen times already and it still hasn’t gotten old!
Pumpkinhead is holding open the door to FMV Hell!
Thanks Spoony – this totally made my day.
Great review! Now guess what Wiki now have a new entry on how you review this. Does not help though oh and also love the song at the end I heard it and said to myself “Oh my god it is the first song for the Rocky Horror Picture show as a Rock version!” That was really cool!
hahaha great review
Welcome to the Blagole!
Believe it or not, this isn’t the ONLY game with such problems. I’ve played a few games myself that, unless you actually bought them with an instruction manual (or readable manual), you can’t play. You have no idea what to do, because the interface and story are so convoluted it’s annoying.
You know that a game is awful when Spoony says that it’s the worst game he’s ever played in his life. Makes Sewer Shark and the Make my Video games passable by comparison.
Really good review i found this your funniest in a awhile. This game is so bad and you still make it entertaining and funny. Keep up the good work!
i all most cried at the part with the spoonybum so sad *sniff*
Ignore the comment about TGWTG cross overs – I think they’re a big bonus.
Also, the ‘dude monkey’ comment – this took me back to some of your earlier vids, very funny.
XD, I AM THE BEE KEEPER.
The review is awesome, game is pure shit (srsly, E.T. seems more appealing to me) but I just wanted to give props for Spoony Bum bit. That was hilarious :D
Noah! Dude, if you’re using cue cards, put them directly below or above the camera. You keep glancing off camera and it’s a little obvious. Not that it really hurts your video, but it’s distracting!
Try above or below the camera. So it’s not too far of a glance.
I’ve watched all of you game reviews, Spoony, and this is by far my favorite yet. This is the 3rd time I’m watching it since it was uploaded. I don’t advocate you getting this pissed off and frustrated often, but damn is it entertaining! Keep up the great work!
Not that I didn’t love the review, dude. It made me laugh and kept me entertained. Keep up the excellent work, dude!!
Wow, it’s so messed-up-fuck-all-awful that in a way it’s brilliant.
I mean think about it, there are games that try to scare you, there’s games that make you feel surrounded or like you have no way of surviving something, but when has there ever been a game where you’re left in utter confusion? What’s scarier than wandering around god-knows-where going “WHAT YOU TOOK MY STUFF WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON JESUS CHRIST.”
…Nah, screw that, it’s still shit.
wow…you just saw Pumpkinhead when you were trying to get the review together & yet never heard of it prior to getting the game?
My grandma has a HBO airing of the first one which I first saw when I was like…3, I think
just wow…anyways, I loved the review, though the second film always was garbage & that the game being even worse just shows how much they tried to whore out the terrible second film
“We’re gonna need another Spoony!”
This just may be the greatest video game review of all time. I’m not even joking. This was fucking hilarious. The fact that you spent so much time researching the game only to end up getting next to no information on it…that’s dedication. Major, major props to you, dude!
I’m truly pity for your soul right now.
Damn dude I’ve never seen you this pissed off
And I thought FFVIII was the game you hate the most it looks like Pumkinhead is even worst.
LOL at you screaming and hating this game
I’m glad you didn’t do a ‘Black Hole’ frame sketch. I enjoy you as a reviewer who does some acting, not an actor who does some reviewing. I’ve liked the work you do with Linkara, as he’s the best thing on TGWTG. Again, tho, he’s best when trying to be a reviewer first and an actor second.
I bought Daxter for PSP for $3 at Gamestop. You should feel dirty! They should have gave you money to take that turd.
Holy shit. And I thought I’ve played obscure games. Well, I’m convinced. Pumpkinhead’s Revenge is obviously the reason both alcohol and drugs were invented.
@BuckyMayhem: I think drugs and alcohol were the cause of this game. ;)
Poor Spoony Bum. :(
is it bad that the second time watching this I Jumped when linkara in a robe appeared.
stopped with a handfull of cereal ready o be nommed.
Well now the internet has something to go on. Yeah you did not beat the game, but … who really wants to?
Personally I am still having FMV game nightmares of critical path.
Yo Spoony could you please rip the ISO of that game and put it on Megaupload? After seeing this video I’m convinced that I HAVE to see the ending like I’ll even record the entire thing if you’re interested I just don’t have the game and I’ve looked all around and couldn’t find it
on IMDb the popularity went up 500% this week (i am guessing because of this video)
Look at this guys written review from imdb is hillarious http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0182839/ he says its good lol
I love yoo SpoonyBum! I give you hug!
Who in their right mind would create a game like this?
I guess i answered my own question.
Go Spoony! #1 Woo
And Spoony finally has his Manos.
Anyone else think the Cigarette was just a lame attempt at a ‘smoking kills’ message?
No mention of Sherriff Garak? I’m surprised.
Wow… can’t believe the TGWTG angst. Come on people, I just sat through Phantasmagoria 2 all the way through. Benzaie dancing nearly naked will forever haunt my dreams now people! So it’s not like the first time he’s used TGWTG crossovers. And the part with Linkara, in case you dude monkeys didn’t notice, was SUPPOSED to be stupid. Sheesh, I didn’t hear you guys complain about Benzaie’s clip in here.
As someone who actually enjoys Final Fantasy 8 and Sonic Unleashed, I should hate you both. But I don’t. I love you guys and the bits, keep ‘em up.
I loved this review. I love the bum. I love Linkara. I love Dr. Insano. Dr. Insano is just an awesome character, whether he’s tormenting Linkara or hiring Squall to kill you. Dude. Love it.
And I do agree with people here who say that you are enough or more than enough to keep our attention spans. Still, without TGWTG, I wouldn’t know who you are, and I LIKE the crossovers and continuity bs. It makes things fun. It’s an easter egg for the regular followers. And it helps that you team up with good reviewers (Linkara and Benzaie being two of my fav TGWTG personalities).
lol. “Space Mountain is my penis…”
Nice Doctor Horrible reference. This review was awesome.
This game is fuck fuck fuckedey fuck fuck.
This is the best review yet Spoony, i can’t stop watching it.
Apparently Bloodwings isn’t the only thing BAP Interactive made: they made the terribleness that is… Sonic’s Schoolhouse
And it seems that it uses the same engine as Bloodwings. That is a bad sign
Spoony, I’ve seen this video 4 times now. It’s just hilarious. One of the very best I’ve seen here. Keep it up!!
I think you just discovered Hell, spoony….
Holy mother is that “game” bad. I mean wow.
I think I found the only moment in this movie when Spoony wasn’t pissed off:
“I’d still take your ass to space mountain, and then bust my second nut into those beautiful boobs of yours,
I don’t care HOW big they are…
Scarlett must’ve loved that comment, Spoony Boy Rick Flair
this is your funniest episode sense the thing review. i love when you go back to the old spoony before you made big giant cross overs. basic spoony rules
even if you do kill the guys who made the game, you’ll go to jail for murder Noah
Thats just great if ya want to send me those names and addresses i’d be more than happy to deal with them for you…lol “I WILL STAB YOU IN THE BRAIN” why not just punch thier souls? oh wait they don’t have souls.lol
oh i have a horrible game you might wnt to review very very horrible jus email me
After that you should review a good game like system shock.
Why does the main menu have a “Save Game’ option?
“…………………………………………Beware. You’re entering the world of pumpkin heaaaaaaad”
How much was that loony lady being paid for saying that? $1? Abysmal. And was it the same witch as the one that starred in Pumpkinhead 2?
hey spoony how come u didn’t mention that there were a pumpkinhead 3 and 4?
lol i just rented pumkin head 1 and 4 thats right there are 4 movies
Chill out, some paper got jammed, some of my paper got jammed.
Spending hours sifting through websites, watching 2 semi-related movies, and buying a second copy of a crappy game just to get the instruction book is certainly dedication. It is too bad all of that didn’t really help that much to get through with that game.
I mean, wow…it is enough that a game forces you to read the instruction manuel so you would know what the HFIL you need to do. However, when a game is still unplayable making you wonder what in the hoolies you need to do even WITH reading the instructions…that is certainly a sign of a truly bad game. I feel for you man.
Anyway, I’m surprised that “Spoony’s Rage” didn’t blow up the Earth this time. Has he learned to control it enough that only certain people (like Benzaie) could hear his “heart-rendering scream”? Or are we actually watching the Spoony-clone (or, as I call him, Kopi-Spoony), who only has half the power of the real Spoony? XD
Great review – the funny thing is I actually bought this game when I was young (well, my mum actually bought it). It feels like the programmers just copied the Windows maze screensaver and threw FMVs and sprites in. Goddamn it was terrible.
…Wonder if I still have the disc…
I remember watching the original movie, late at night on the Sci Fi channel. It’s actually not that bad. Worth a look if anyone is interested.
Too bad Noah didn’t watch the second movie before he played the game. But jeez this game looks horrible, so much it can depress someone.
okay, that was awesome spoony one. I almost fell off my chair at the “I WILL STAB YOU IN THE BRAIN!!!” part.
I don’t think the people who designed this “game” have a brain fro him to stab…..
Oh Jesus, the look on your face when you said you bought another one… I cried laughing.
Lol , at least i have better luck with the game. I was one of the suckers that bought the game when it first came out as i actually loved fmv games. Played it like for a day and gave it up until this year where i decided to drag it out of mothballs and attempt to play it since i couldn’t find a single review or video of the game , had totally forgotten how to play it but after a couple of hapless attempt , i managed to get the gist of it.
The “stolen goods” part came from one of the movie clip where it shows some guy offloading some stolen stuffs from the back of a truck , if you grab anything from that movie clip , you will get the warning. The mirror is used for the gatekeeper room for his puzzle , the candles you will need for the hidden passage because it doesn’t have light and the key as you found out is for the chest , all those stupid stuffs from the chests is for the gatekeeper puzzle.
You can also skip the whole stupid vortex with the crystals by pressing esc key , it is pretty crappy game but i wanted to do that video for youtube so i persevere. The wall where you can recharge your green energy , the wall will recharge itself after a while and you can use it again. Your red bar/health , you can recharge it outside these lava pits outside the wall area involving these egg things.
I had totally forgotten how to play that ridiculously hard 2nd level , there was a way to block pumpkinhead’s attack in the movie clips but i had forgotten how to. I never did complete the game.
fmvgamer: Wow. Just wow. Well, whatever floats your boat pal
Are FMV-games any good? I haven’t ever played any of them, and never heard of an actually decent one. The subject interests me, because it is a special part of the video-games (recent) history.
Btw, great review Noah, I laughed a lot. Thank you. In my opinion, your best review was The Thing, and after that Final Fantasy 8.
Keep up the good work Noah,
There’s plenty of decent ones – the tex murphy games , gabriel knight 2 etc.
Wow…………. that was BAD
I uploaded the main (and pretty much only) song from the game here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D3D3nyPezcU in case anyone wants to hear it uninterrupted and in all its glory.
I know where you live now Noah.
Dude I fell sorry for ya.
At least you didn’t played Gumshoe for the nes and trust me when i say this…
Its a nightmare!!!
but if you do you might find a mario ripoff,an neverending levels,Blocks that kills you,Chaos emeralds,And you only use the Zapper.
Anyway Nice Vid Spoony can’t wait for the next one.
Dude, at 23:52, you scared me!!!
I’m actually really surprised that you never saw Pumpkinhead until now. A few years ago, my friend and I went on a horror movie kick during the summer of our junior year in college, and we avoided that movie at the video store like the plague until it was the last one left. Like you, we were surprised that it was actually pretty damn good! Never saw the sequels though. By the way, I love how the youtube comment you showed for your “research” was about you. Kickass!
Great review as always spoony. They actually made more movies and I am ashamed to say I have them ( I love bad movies). I have to ask though, were you looking at cue cards??
Also like the revamp of Rocky hooror at the end
when you jumped to the house and the book keeper, fucking scared me! lmao. But yea I watched I few of the Pumkinhead movies on Scifi and was VERY unamused, in fact I could not finish watching it, as I’d prefer blowing up Majini’s on RE5!
Spoony I’ve always loved your videos, but my God this review made me fall out of my chair bursting my guts with laughter. I’m so happy you in fact reviewed this is, I’m now tempted to actually find myself a copy and sit down and play it. Along with watching both movies.
wouldent it be weird if soley moon fry was watching
Oh, I loved your running with scissors joke, I just couldn’t stop laughing, espicially with the sound effects.
SPOONY GO TO THAT
I THINK IT MAY HELP I FOUND IT ON YOUTUBE
You’re so fucking hilarious Spoony! I love the FMV Hell series you do, I grew up playing FMV’s when I was growing up during the time when they churned those fuckers out. Keep up the great work man, looking forward to more FMV’ Hell reviews
I’m sorry Spoony, but I totally enjoyed your rage for this thing. XD
Omg. The sheriff is GARAK from DS9.
Actually, they couldn’t really turn back, cuz the police would eventually find out what they did to that old woman and her house. But otherwise, great video.
I just checked gamesfaqs.com
The Internet, in all it’s vacuous slandering brain dead infinitum and its infinite patience actually has the Bloodwings: Pumpkinhead’s Revenge clip loaded with several pics, a walkthrough, and near dead forum that started up the night this video went up.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the Internet has come through for us again, disturbingly enough.
That game looks truly unholy.
I think if the AVGN were exposed to this, the universe would explode X_X
i don’t know about you guys, but that music, and that old woman actually creep me the hell out.
ROFL, that was awesome.
Oh lord, if anyone doubts that you are doing the reviews so no one need put themselves through this hell then they need to watch this. I felt so bad for you Spoony, especially after they took your whole inventory from you. Seeing as how I haven’t heard of BAP making any more games then I can assume that God did us all a favor and sank the company.
Please keep up the good work Spoony, we’re with ya buddy.
I am right there with you spoony i will hunt them down and stab them in the BRAIN with you, just send me a message when you find them, if i could i would take away your pain
i will be right there stabbing them in the BRAIN with you, im sorry spoony if i could take your pain of this game away i would
I am sorry Spoony, i wish i could take your pain away, BUT if you want i can help you stab those bastereds in the BRAIN with you
My god. I have never seen you so pissed at a game…in fact I don't think I have seen any online video game reviewer this pissed at a game. It must be absolutely awful.
Believe it or not, there are more than one games that the internet has like, NO instructions for. I know, I'm completely shocked too.
I'm also lovin' how the makers insult you.
“A demon land filled with- SURPRISE!- demons.”
I had this game. I got it when i was 8 at K’s merchandise. Started it up like 15 times, never went anywhere with it.
Wow this game must have drove Spoony absolutely bat shit insane!
I think you can get in trouble for making those death threats.
This game almost looks like something I would play just for the challenge, like Desert Bus.
In fact, the Desert Bus drive should have this instead, really test their fortitude.
Although the biggest surprise here is that you hadn't seen Pumpkinhead. It's the first time this young gnomelet ever saw Lance Henriksen.
I wonder if this video resulted in any updates on wiki for the game.
It is Garak from DS9 as the sheriff.
After watching this, I had to find a walkthrough. Luckily, someone did one, quite recently. Spoony should watch this. If not just to see if there's a level 2. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7sN_Y_zsEoE
Seriously, the look in Spoony's eyes tell me that if he got the chance he would kill them for real.
You know Spoony, you are so cute when you're mad.
A DUDE monkey.
Say what you will about Pumpkinhead II, but you can't deny one thing about that movie:
Mayor Bubba can rock the mullet like a motherfucker.
Someone actually finished this game. There's only three levels, but they are both long and confusing.
Then level 2 starts at:
Then level 3:
The ending is the most shocking thing you will ever see.
I think “scary as shit” is a better description of him when he's mad.
I don't know, I find it rather adorable lol. He's getting violently angry over one of the worst games created. I think it's absolutely cute.
I am thinking also of the TNA Impact video where he screamed so loudly that it echoed off the walls. :/
Poor Spoony. You know this is gonna be your punishment if you went to hell…play Bloodwings: Pumpkinhead's revenge for all eternity~ while Satan and Pumpkinhead laugh behind your shoulder.
FFFF best ragequit ever. Keep up the morale dude!
This review omfg!! cracks me up everytime spoony is like, “WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS!?!?!” i'm so sorry i've been using that in n everyday life since i heard that.
Ah yeah, this was a pretty funny one.
Watching it again, though, it's pretty clear that you keep looking off-screen at something… your computer monitor? I'm not sure, but you're looking at it almost half as often as you're looking at the camera, and it detracted from the review a bit when I noticed.
Dude, they have copies of Bloodwings on eBay, box and manual intact. :P
Because I'm an asshole I'm going to post the walkthrough for this game. I'm sure no one needs this thing since no one sane will ever play the game, but at least now anyone who wants to can see the wonderful ending I'm sure awaits the patient weirdos who do so.
I think your comments on the actress with the breast reduction went too far. Saying she's hot is fine and all, but the description went well into uncomfortable-land.
… That was the joke.
I still don't know why I like this review so much, lol.
Though, I like a lot of the Gamera(sp) MST 3Ks and some of those were painful as heck too.
Is it sad that the “I am the Bee-keeper,” line is often quoted by myself and others?probably XD
The old lady(?) at the beginning looks like Christopher Walken in a fright wig. That was some dedication to trying to play a game that made my eyes feel like Brillo pads, never mind actually playing it.
Hahah. Linkaras appearance as the “Book keeper” crack'd me up.“I am….the Bee keeper!” xDDD Brilliant!
The game is freaking….it's a….it's just….I can't even think any word to describe it.I feel bad for Spoony. :(
lol, i actually went online, and tried to find this game. I got nothing. Spoony was right; this is the game that time forgot. and looking at all of the other videos, the fact that the end vid of the game is someone dancing in the pumpkinhead suit is like pissing on someone without the curtisy of calling it rain. (bad BAD line from a shitty movie, the person who knows where its from is my hero) I really want this game. Just to say that I have it.

Well, if there’s one salvagable thing about the game, it’s that funky ambient BGM. I do so dig it.
Also hilarious to see you briefly channel Ric Flair there. Space mountain may be the oldest ride in the park, but it’s still got the longest line! WOOOOO!
compelled..to buy. Reading the gamefaqs and just thinking about playing it is so eerily depressing. Great review.
Spoony man, how do you do it? You take some beating’s, you’re MST3k quality, my brother and I said you, the critic, and one other of your choice should run an MST like program, it’d sell, hard, I’d watch it, hell, the whole world would watch it.
This “game” looks like an old 90s screen saver I saw when I was 10…
I remember seeing this game in stores and even I passed it up. And I collected all the American Laser Games. Except Space Pirates.
Awww, I Iike the Spoony Bum. *gives him a chili dog*
Good lord, this game does look like hell. At least tell me you were able to return it or SOMEthing.
hey spoony I also have this game because my friend gave it to me for free and I tried to give it back but he wouldn’t take it
and I ended up traped in the black hole untill I saw this video
I find it hard to believe that Spoony has never seen Pumpkinhead the movie until around this review
Oh dear Lord, I’ve watched this review three times now, and every time it has become even funnier! Spoony, you truly have natural talent of making good humor.
lmao Spoony Bum got owned!
Is that… Garak from DS9 as the sheriff ? O_o
Man, Punky Brewster grew up hot! I saw the first movie because it had the mighty Lance Hendrickson in it and… holy crap! Is that Andy Robinson from Hellraiser as the sheriff? Anyway, yes, the original was pretty good because of the relationship between the father and son.
You guys know what would make this review even funnier? If it didn’t have the annoying motherfucking Bing ad that you can’t close. That would be just FANTASTIC RIGHT NOW :D
If any of those guys behind Bing came to my house, I would kick them in the privates until they vomited blood.
Hey Spoony one, want another shitty game to play? I have a copy of The Battle Of Middle Earth II! While you could say it is not BAD, I played it’s Risk-like mode and the computer cheats. Not in the normal ‘I get extra resources/units to make up for crappy AI’ but in the ‘Your builder starts 15 feet from my main base, I run out and kill him, you loose’ way. That happened to me FIVE TIMES.
So I finally decide to give it another try a few days ago. Install, update, run. Lil loading box pops up that apparently launches before the game launches.
Keep in mind, this ran on my old radeon 9600 vid card and Intel 4 processor. It should run on my fucking Intel i5 quad-core processor and Radeon HD 4500 vid card!
I looked online for a fix and got ‘Reinstall drivers’ when that did not work for the guy, he was told to REINSTALL WINDOWS. Since when in FUCK should running a game involve reinstalling my OS!? Thank you, EA, the only good fucking game ever made by you was Road Rash. Please get out of the gaming business. The only reason you make money is because you have licensing for every sports game so you can crank out shitty remakes of last years games and smother any company that makes better sports games because they cannot license real players names.
1: I wonder if anyone walked up to spoony and flat out told him (probably lying) that they helped make this game
2: I agree, it’s not a game… it’s just hell. nothing more. nothing… at all… it’s just a burning eternity of punishment.
What the song playing when the Spoony Bum is leaving?
He only credited two songs, but that doesn’t sound like “Building the Deathcoaster”..
Hey Spoony, I know this review was from 2009 (and I only saw the review today since my internet ram usage has reset), but since then someone HAS put a walkthrough on gamfaqs. They even credit you alot in it.
Ironically, this review IS funny :D
This review cracked me the hell up
“If you sit through this review, you will be truly dumber for having experienced it.”
So, what if you watch this review multiple times? Is there a cumulative effect? Because…that bodes ill for me.
It’s ok if you post stupid comments, as long as they have an Awwww so cute indirect compliment.
Even though the game is obviously awful, I personally love the music that plays in it.
me to the music is the only part of the game i like
Holy crap, I just realized the guy who plays the Sheriff is the same actor who plays Garak on DS9.
So, you managed to get people to actually edit the wikipedia. Congrats, you also made them watch it to do so.
Directly after watching this review, I listened to Genesis 16:12 by The Left Rights.
I wanted to chuck my emulator in the trash.
HOW DARE THIS GAME EXIST!
You have managed to convert this piece of crap into your own violent rage and then via editing into more enjoyment than this games was ever worth. You should be proud
AHHHH! AHH MY EARS!
WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO SCIENCE FICTION DOUBLE FEATURE! OH DEAR GOD
But I like the Spoony Bum!
This is the best x I’ve ever y in my life!
Sheriff Braddock is played by the same guy as Scorpio from Dirty Harry and Larry from Hellraiser. :D
Andrew Robinson, he was also in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
I love the old lady in the movie, the way she says her line “He already has son…He already has”
it’s awesome and creepy XD
Tragedy, aint it?
I’m surprised you had never heard of Pumpkinhead …! It was one of the more well-known not-good-but-not-terrible horror movies. Glad you have been exposed. At least to the first one.
I liked Pumpkinhead.
Heh, Lao Che shirt.
Nice Khan moment.
Ironically when Spoony opens this review talking about how he couldn’t make it funny, its actually his funniest review yet.
What’s the name of the violin piece that plays when Spoony Bum walks away?
Awww… Poor Spoony bum… :(
Oh my God, that ending made me spit my coffee out! It was so funny! I couldn’t stop laughing! Thanks for making this!
the gate keeper scarred he fukin shit scared me when he popped up the first time
One minute thirty seconds in… See all the bashing…
Check it out on Gamefaqs, nothing…
One message on the board and the title is: “Abandon all hope ye who enters this board”
Crap, I haven’t seen it this bad since Batman Forever when I looked that up. This will be interesting.
Perhaps the scariest thing is that they’ve recently made two new pumpkin head films on the SyFy channel called Pumpkinhead: ashes to ashes, and Pumpkinhead: blood feud.
“the tale of pumpkinhead’s revenge is long, criptic and incredibly stupid”. Best line ever! and you thought that you couldn’t make this funny!
It seems that no less than hacking the game to look at it’s source code is necessary to find any sort of coherent instructions.
Ok, this is the Until we Win of the game, but where is the real review?
wow that was awesome Spoony, Seeing you get angry is comedy on its own.
The Sheriff is played by the same actor as Elam Garek on DS9.
Elim Garak was AWESOME, wasn’t he?
I never had a tailor, but I will love this guy to hell and back.
But Spoony already knows your comment.
Given the internet, an estimated amount of 500+ people told him about it.
But now I wonder wether the name was changed to “Elim” Garak in the german version, while it was “Elam” Garak in the original.
Garak was an incredible character, he is one of the reasons DS9 is my favourite Trek.
He was also in Hellraiser. And by extension, the Hellraiser clip show, AKA Hellraiser 2.
He’s called Andrew Robinson by the way, for future readers of this forum.
The actor is Andrew Robinson. I was talking about the character.
Well. Now I have to go find something worth watching to reverse the retardation of my brain.
i love this video
Misfits introduced me to this movie! Hey I’m glad you like it. Exactly as you said, it’s pretty good as far as shitty movies go. The first one at least, didn’t watch the rest.
The game really looks like shit though.
The suffering lol
Best rage quit EVER
LOL, you paid MORE for that than me for my used copy of PS1’s Phantom Menace game. Which SUCKS, but I enjoy cause… I don’t know, nostalgia. Price for that was $1
