Pumpkin Night review

I found out about Pumpkin Night through a Discord bot after the design of main character, Kirino Naoko, struck out to me. From looking into it i have found the most brutal, gory, torture-porn piece of media i've seen since Saw 6. And I fucking love it.
Pumpkin Nights is if you take every single 80's slasher film and combine them into some sort of gory cheesy amalgamation and shove it into a japanese comic book form. Of course this also means it has a lot of the downsides of those movies.
Almost every single character is stiff and two-dimensional, making it so you're never really attached to a character whenever any horrific event happens to them. These characters also make extremely idiotic choices, again, much like an old slasher flick. The only thing that i genuinely disliked and didn't find endearing in any way was the manga's tendency to bring up points that either have no relevance, or have much less relevance then expected.
Of course, we can't only talk about negatives, can we? Where Pumpkin Night exceeds is with its gore. Whenever a kill is shown, it spares no details and shows every gritty detail, while keeping every one unique and disturbing. There's always eyeballs and intestines and decapitated limbs in every scene, and the art works great for it. I also couldn't help but fall in love with the cliche but also appealing design of Naoko, and her signature weapon hitting that perfect balance of goofy and over the top.
In the end, Pumpkin Night isn't perfect, or even good to some people, if you are a fan of cheesy horror or gore I heavily recommend this. Now to wait for the next chapter.

This review is regarding an unfinished manga, and there will be no spoilers here.

As of this review, this manga is only up to date on chapter 14, and when the manga is fully finished and i have read it all, i will write another review on it.

This manga may seem like a story mostly just there to give it's readers the most disgusting depictions of death possible, but that's not all. This manga is not just a gore-fest, and it's not just about some random high school girl going rampant. There is a reason to why she's doing all of this, and trust me, when you read this, you'll get pretty engaged into the story, and not just the gore. Every chapter ending serves as a great cliffhanger, having you need to see the next chapter.

Reading this, it reminds me of classic American slasher horror films back in the 70s to 90s, and obviously this manga author might have been inspired by these films and or is a big fan of them, especially John Carpenter's Halloween, as Naoko, our masked killer, seems to be quite similar to him of all. Being someone who is a huge fan of horror, I am really enjoying this, and other fans of slasher films out there might want to check this one out.

Artwork is pretty decent, and there's not too much to say about it here, only other than the fact that the artist seems to go a little hardcore on how Naoko kills and leaves her victims.

If your not one for gore, i'd step away from this, because you may feel a little sick looking at some pages. But trust me, this manga is not just for gore, as it has a pretty decent story all in all and im really interested in the fate of the main character and the killer herself as the story goes.
