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.

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The film takes place in a quiet seemingly innocent town. Jody (Bill Thornbury) and Reggie (Reggie Bannister) are attending a funeral at morningside for their best friend Tommy who apparently killed himself. Jody's little brother Mike (Michael Baldwin), who wasn't supposed to attend watches the proceedings from a distance with his binoculars. After the services Mike sees more than he bargained for. A mysterious Tall Man arrives in a hearse and picks Tommy's coffin up by himself and loads it into the hearse with his bare hands. Mike, bewildered by what he saw, rides out of Morningside in a hurry, but not before being spotted by the Tall Man.
Mike visits a psychic living in the neighborhood and confesses to her about what he saw at the cemetery. The psychic tells Mike that it was all in his mind and that fear is the real killer. Still not convinced, Mike begins to notice strange things and decides to break into Morningside at night and spy on it's occupants. After encountering the Tall Man and his minions, Mike narrowly escapes and returns home. Mike tells Jody about the horrific things he saw at Morningside and that they have to do something. Jody, reluctant to believe his little brother, is finally convinced when Mike shows him his evidence. Now its up to Jody, Reggie and Mike to figure out the nature of the Tall Man and stop him.

Format: DVD
When you think of horror, usually you think of gore, ghosts and/or slashers.

But Don Coscarelli introduced an eerier kind of horror in "Phantasm" -- the kind that flies at you in little metallic balls and drills into your head. This low-budget horror movie quietly worms its way into your soul and exposes all sorts of little fears -- of death, loss, undeath and creepy old men -- while also spooking you with the horrors that you can't even identify.

While his older brother Jody (Bill Thornbury) is at a funeral, Mike Pearson (Michael Baldwin) sees something odd outside the funeral home -- an old man (Angus Scrimm) casually lifting the casket and singlehandedly slinging it into a hearse. Soon Mike is being stalked by the Tall Man and his gibbering, dwarfish minions in their hooded cloaks. Think undead Jawas, but much, much more primally horrifying.

Of course, Mike tries to tell Jody and their old friend Reggie (Reggie Bannister) what is going on, but they believe that Mike is just reacting to his brother's impending departure. So he sneaks into the Morningside Funeral Home, and comes back with the Tall Man's still-moving, yellow-bleeding finger. Finally convinced, Jody and Reggie help defend him from the Tall Man -- but what they find lurking with him is more ghastly than they could even imagine.

Reportedly Don Coscarelli originally wanted to adapt Ray Bradbury's "Something Wicked This Way Comes," but the rights weren't available to him. So instead he crafted a movie out of his own nightmares. After all, the best horror movies are about more than the trappings -- they are the ones that tap into primal terrors that lurk in the shadows of your soul, and frighten you with the unnerving wrongness of everything that is going on.

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.

I hadn't seen this for more than 25 years, so to watch the DVD on a big widescreen TV was a real treat. The film has many good points: Its errie atmosphere, the unexplained spheres and in fact the general surreal nature of the goings on. Especially the portal to another world scene. Its also well photographed, the special effects for 1979 look good and on DVD the picture is mostly very sharp and it looks great.

On the downside the script does the actors no favours, and there is some very wooden acting going on!

But I enjoyed the film and will watch it again and would probably give it 3.5 stars if allowed.
