I loved the movie, and also enjoyed the TV episode last night. I've never put any thing other than a traditional candle inside my pumpkins, but maybe I'll play around with a couple Cyalume glow sticks stuck to the underside of the lid, and replicate the mutant pumpkins!
You don't even need a pattern for this one. You can just free hand carve it! Actually, the pumpkins in the episode did not have a lid or bottom cut, so I think I try gutting it through the mouth.
