Pumpkin Heads
28 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An intense epic about jealousy over a long-time pumpkin growing competition in some small town in some era, maybe the fifties. Polly Holliday owns most of the town but has never been able to win the pumpkin growing contest. She is mean spirited and vindictive. June Lockhart, Lassie's mother in a former life, is the goody two shoes, struggling woman with the heart of gold (that's another name for boring). A man visits Holliday and offers her a proposition. If she is willing to give him 20,000 dollars to expand his research to fight world hunger (he has raised a pea the size of a basketball, using a nutrient), he will give her enough of the stuff to win the pumpkin prize. Unfortunately, she will only offer half. If you don't see what is coming then you are of a lesser mind than yours truly. Anyway, it is just so lacking in much interest that it isn't worth the time.
