From Amazon.co.uk

Jody is the kind of guy that every 1970s teen looked up to. He's in his early 20s, has a cool car, splendid 1970s hair, a leather jacket, plays guitar and (naturally) snags all the girls. His little brother, Mike, in particular, admires him and emulates him at every turn. Things start to go astray, however, when the two brothers and their friend Reggie attend a funeral for a friend. Mike notices a tall man working at the funeral home; in the course of his snooping, he sees the tall man put a loaded coffin into the back of a hearse as easily as if it was a shoebox. Jody doesn't believe his little brother's stories, though, until he brings home the tall man's severed finger, still wriggling in what appears to be French's mustard. From there, the film picks up a terrific momentum that doesn't let up until the sequel-ripe twist ending.

Phantasm was one of the first horror movies to break the unspoken rule that victims were supposed to scream, fall down and cower until they were killed. Instead, Mike and Jody are resourceful and smart, aggressively pursuing the evil inside the funeral home with a shotgun and Colt pistol. Furthermore, the script has a great deal of character development, especially in the relationship between the two brothers. The film even has a surprisingly glossy look, despite its low-budget origins, and little outright gore (except for the infamous steel spheres that drill into victims' heads). This drive-in favourite was a big success at the time of its release, and spawned three sequels. Little wonder; it includes an inventive story, likeable characters, a runaway pace and, of course, evil dwarves cloaked in Army blankets. The end result is one of the better horror films of the late 1970s. Hot-rod fans take note: Jody drives a Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda, the pinnacle of 1960s muscle cars, rounding out his status as a Cool Guy. --Jerry Renshaw

Product Description

All four films in the horror franchise. In 'Phantasm' (1979), shortly after losing his parents, teenager Mike (Michael Baldwin) grows suspicious of a tall man (Angus Scrimm) he sees lifting a coffin single-handed at the local graveyard, and decides to investigate. It turns out that the funeral parlour is being used as an assembly line for zombie slaves, and it is left to Mike, with the aid of his brother Jody (Bill Thornburg) and ice cream man Reggie (Reggie Bannister), to stop them. In 'Phantasm 2' (1987), the Tall Man is still terrorizing people in their dreams and raiding cemeteries with the assistance of his evil gnome-like helpers. Mike (James Le Gros) and ice cream man Reggie resume their battle with the deathly spirit after a recurring dream about a beautiful girl convinces Mike that she must be next on the Tall Man's hit list. In 'Phantasm 3: Lord of the Dead' (1993), the Tall Man returns after fifteen years, hell bent on taking Mike Pearson (Baldwin) to his grave. Mike's friend Reggie, orphan boy Tim (Kevin Connors) and one-woman army Rocky (Gloria Lynne Henry) attempt to stave off the Tall Man's threat once and for all. Finally, in 'Phantasm 4: Oblivion' (1998), the Tall Man's true identity is finally revealed. Mike bends the contours of time and space to wage war against the Tall Man and his deadly metal spheres. The forces of darkness are ranged against him, and Mike's only allies are his friend Reggie and the spirit of his dead brother.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enter the world of the Tall Man! 2 Oct 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Phantasm rates as one of the better lower budget horrors of the latter 70s.Released at the tail end of 1978, Phantasm has now gone on to acheive cult status within the horror movie fraternity.The story revolves around two orphaned brothers who happen to live near a cemetry, where all manner of sinister occurrences have become common place. Events begin to take an ominous twist for the brothers when a close friend meets a mysterious demise.During the funeral, the younger brother notices a giant undertaker known simply as the Tall Man,played to great effect by Angus Scrimm, single handedly lifting a casket and loading it into the back of his hearst and driving away.In true horror film style, the curiosity of the boy gets the better of him and decides to investigate-oh dear.As expected, his meddling opens up a can of worms he wished he hadn't.Within the cemetry, all manner of ghoulish events await those who dare to enter. Resurected corpses, blood thirsty hooded dwarves reign terror, and perhaps one the most memorable forces of evil being a metal ball with protruding spikes which flies through the air mercilessly pursueing its prey before draining the victims of their blood.Phantasm has spawned a number of sequels, although being credible films in their own right, none can ever equal the masterful original, which even by todays standards over twenty years on remains a true testament of classic horror movie making. Aside from the excellent story, spine chilling moments and a truly fantastic nemesis in the shape and form of Angus Scrimm, who lends a great deal of presence to the role as the maniacal undertaker,is in my opinion among one of the best on screen foes the horror genre has seen, the film's soundtrack score is also worthy of praise.All in all, Phantasm has the lot.

5.0 out of 5 stars A really unique horror franchise. 29 Mar 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've seen all 4 of these films loads of times,the 1st Phantasm is a real classic & the sequels are all very good too,never a dull moment in any of them.
Angus Scrimm as The Tall Man is a very interesting & original horror villain indeed,his performance is excellent,right up there with Robert Englund as Freddy Krueger,Doug Bradley as Pinhead and Tony Todd as Candyman.
The commentary tracks on each film are very informative & great to hear,all the other bonus material is very good too,all in all,these are classic films that should be seen by any horror fan,if you've not seen them,then jump right in,films like these are far better than all those weak remakes Hollywood churns out by the dozen nowadays.
Now all we need is a UK Blu Ray release of all 4 films,it's very strange that Phantasm II is the only film in the series to be released on US Blu Ray,so yes a UK Blu Ray set would be brilliant.

4.0 out of 5 stars Low budget Horror but grabs you anyway 17 Nov 2013
By RICHARD
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Somethings just hit the mark when you lease expect it.

One of the best baddies ever and if you can place yourself n the characters position you'll be loving it on a cold winer's night in.

Star removed for director taking a little too much license in places.

Don Coscarelli created a fantastic series of horror films with the Phantasm series, these films would definitely appeal to those who are looking for something different within the sci/fi horror genre. If you like low budget cult sci/fi horror films then your going to love this. Phantasm combines a nightmarish quality that few horror movies achieve with a nostalgic trip back in time to the late 70's. The central theme is that of young Mike being abandoned by his brother Jody, and overcoming his fears. The cryptic nature of the Tall Man's presence adds to the tension, and Myrow's eerie soundtrack is the perfect finishing touch. His well-crafted cuts in specific tension- filled scenes helped to heighten the emotion of fear and pending doom in the film. It was only his third film and he was 23 years old when he made it.

While spying on his older brother at a friend's funeral, Mike (A. Michael Baldwin) notices strange things happening at Morningside Cemetery. He witnesses a Tall Man (Angus Scrimm) picking up a full coffin and placing it back into his hearse. Unable to convince his brother Jody (Bill Thornbury) and the local ice cream man Reg (Reggie Bannister) about what he saw, he heads out to do a little investigating on his own. He discovers that their local mortuary hides a legion of hooded killer dwarf-creatures, a flying silver sphere of death, and is home to the sinister mortician known only as the Tall Man. The first film while it does have a little gore in it, mainly focuses on the dark and moody atmosphere and it has a surreal style, there's also the possibility that it wasn't real but a bad nightmare, great stuff.

Phantasm II begins right after where the first film left off.
