1. A hillbilly horror movie released in 1989 featuring actor Lance Henriksen as the film's protagonist. Lance plays a man whose son is accidentally killed by rambunctious city kids on dirt bikes. Instead of phoning the police, the man instead seeks the aid of a witch living in solitude, who aids him in unleashing a insidious demon upon the youths. The demon was nicknamed "Pumpkinhead" by the local townsfolk, due to it's appearence.

2. A nickname for Abobo, a character from the NES game "Double Dragon". For the record, Abobo is not an insidious demon. Rather, he's a street thug with a humorously disproportinate head sitting atop his tiny body.

A metaphoric term to describe a person who has a high opinion of themselves and presents themselves as "All-Knowing" or SDS (Shit Don't Stink). The term has been derived from the idea that the person being called a pumpkin head has so much Ego that their head is swollen up like a pumpkin. One or more people at a job setting could possibly possess such traits to warrant being called a Pumpkin Head.
