Movie Series - Phantasm

Phantasm is a low-budget cult classic horror film produced in 1977 and released in 1979. The film was directed, written, photographed, co-produced and edited by Don Coscarelli. It introduced The Tall Man (who was portrayed in the film and its sequels by Angus Scrimm), a supernatural and sadistic undertaker who turns the dead into dwarf zombies to do his bidding and take over the world. This film was released on DVD by MGM in 1999 and then re released on DVD by Anchor Bay Entertainment on April 10, 2007. The film was originally rated X by the MPAA because of the silver sphere sequence, and due to a scene involving a man urinating on the floor after falling down dead. After Los Angeles Times film critic Charles Champlin made a phone call in a favor to a friend on the board, the rating was changed from the (commercially non-viable) X-rating to R. Champlin's positive review was quoted on the film's promotional posters. This movie was number 25 on the cable channel Bravo's list of the "100 Scariest Movie Moments". It was followed by four sequels, Phantasm II, Phantasm III: Lord of the Dead, Phantasm IV: Oblivion, and (so far rumored) Phantasm V.

2 What a great series of ORIGINAL horror films- imagine that an original idea from hollywood? With it's own mythology of other dimensional slaves, the tall man, silver globes, homocidal dwarves and a sick take on the afterlife and man's place in it- these films rock. And I was lucky enough to get a copy of the long out of print second film last week on DVD (thanks MGM for not giving a flip about the fans) . If you want to know how to get a copy of this hard to get cult classic, shout out on this page! BOOOOOOOOOOYYYY!!!!!!!!!! (Tall Man Angus Scrimm's great line from the film!) This movie series hasnt come near any fish related products! And lets PRAY for a great 5th film if they ever make one!! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on May 31, 2009, 11:12 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
