The Legend of Fall Creek & Black Pumpkin

By RodneyHatfieldJr for Movies

Gather around kids I have both holiday fun and slasher action. I have not one but a duology(a set of two works of art that are connected, and that can be seen either as a single work or as two individual works) of slasher goodness from Uncork’d Entertainment. The first one is Black Pumpkin, and the sequel The Legend of Fall Creek, available On Demand and DVD February 9, 2021.

They both tell the story of the horrifying and tragic story of Bloody Bobby. Let's begin with Black Pumpkin. Writer-Director Ryan McGonagle, utilizes the self-established urban legend that was created in his 2016 offering Bloody Bobby, which presents the tale of a young boy who goes missing on Halloween in 1988. Here, McGonagle crafts a new chapter that revolves around two pre-teens, best friends Elliot (Dogen Eyeler: PAW Patrol mini-series) and Pork Chop (Grayson Thorne Patrick: Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later series, American Horror Story series) who unwittingly unleash a dark presence that has been dormant for 10 years. They are forced to survive through a terrifying Halloween night of cat-and-mouse, from the monster known as Bloody Bobby. Starring: Curt Clendenin, Matt Rife, Ellie Patrikios, Grayson Thorne Kilpatrick, Dogen Eyeler, Gemma Brooke Allen, Jo Osmond, Jordyn Lucas.

The newest addition to the Bloody Bobby saga is The Legend of Fall Creek. This looks and feels like a throwback to the slashers of the 1980s(which is a good thing). On a chilly Halloween night in 1988, Fall Creek Valley turned upside down when Robert "Bobby" Maxwell disappeared from a party. On the 20 Year Anniversary, Bloody Bobby seeks revenge on his tormentors who sealed his fate with a blood pact. Starring Curt Clendenin, David J. Uchansky, Jessica Morris, Robert Miano, Silvia Spros, Madison Geller, Ryan R. Mcgonagle, Maxie Solters, Christy Keller, Julia Mack, Tommy Nash, Alton Clemente, and Christopher DeMaci.

So we have two grindhouse-inspired slashers, taking place in Fall Creek Valley, on the 10 and 20 year anniversary of when chronic nose bleeder, Robert "Bloody Bobby" Maxwell, was bullied by his classmates at a Halloween party and disappeared into the nearby haunted woods of Diablo's Den never to be heard from again. The small town turned upside down. You can watch Black Pumpkin now on VoD, and Legend of Fall Creek in a little over a week.
