- Conspicuous CG: Ashes to Ashes suffered from it. Blood Feud remedied that slightly.
- Continuity Snarl: Blood Wings has very little to do with the first one, retconning the Witch and Pumpkinhead's backstory. The later sequels simply ignore Blood Wings and tie themselves to the original.
- Crowning Music of Awesome: "Just Like You" from Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings, performed by Roger Clinton, who plays Mayor Bubba.
- Idiot Plot: Much of the plot of Blood Wings is set off by Danny killing Tommy's mother for no reason and then summoning Pumpkinhead for, again, no reason.
- Moral Event Horizon: Haggis usually warns the would-be avengers that they're about to cross it.
- Sequelitis: The second film, Blood Wings, ignored the first and was terrible. The next two sequels, however, were subversions.
- Squick: The implication in Blood Wings that Tommy was the result of Pumpkinhead having... relations with a woman.
- Visual Effects of Awesome: Pumpkinhead itself in the first film.
- The Woobie: Ed Harley.
