Sequel to 'Phantasm'. The Tall Man (Angus Scrimm) 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 (Reggie Bannister) 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.

Director: Don Coscarelli
Cast: Reggie Bannister, Angus Scrimm, James Le Gros, Paula Irvine, Samantha Phillips, Kenneth Tigar
Mike (James Le Gros) had been committed to a psychiatric hospital since the events of PHANTASM. Jody is dead - according to the "official" report a car accident - nobody believes Mike it was the Tall Man.
Mike decides to tell the psychiatrist exactly what he wants to hear - and gets released.
Found by Reggie (Reggie Bannister) digging up graves that turn up empty, he is convinced to join Reggie at his house for a family dinner.
When they approach Reggie's place, his house explodes - courtesy of the Tall Man - killing everyone inside.
Thus, Reggie and Mike go on a roadtrip to seek, find and destroy the Tall Man.
THE PROS & CONS
After the low-budget success of PHANTASM a studio finally saw the potential of the PHANTASM series and decided to pick it up and fund it. Unfortunately they demanded some changes in the cast, resulting in Michael Baldwin being replaced with James Le Gros. Bill Thornbury is also absent in this part. A perfect example for why studios and producers should be stripped of any say so in the movies' creative procedure (including casting). I liked PHANTASM 2 a lot - but it would have been A LOT better if A. Michael Baldwin and Bill Thornbury had actually reprised their roles.
This time the story focuses on Mike and Reggie who set out to hunt down the Tall Man. I liked PHANTASM II a bit better than its predecessor for several reasons: the pacing has picked up considerably - we're past the introductions - the whole setting is darker and eerier, it has a more morbid atmosphere, several new ideas.Read more ›
The DVD release itself is somewhat of a let down. First of all, the movie is presented in full screen and not the original aspect ratio. Secondly, the encoding is not great and this release looks no better than the old Universal laserdisc from 1988. When will DVD companies learn that the minimum the DVD consumers require is original aspect ratio and proper encoding...
Wait for the R1 release which will be widescreen and have a better picture quality at least.
This movie is quite the opposite, so why do I give it 4 stars? Well, the plot is so-so, the acting slightly better and the dialogue only marginally better however the movie compensates for this with it's superb visual style. I have yet to come across a modern day horror film that scares in such a startling way like this one. The way in which each scene is shot keeps the viewer on edge (Sam Raimi to thank for that one) - no cheezy zombies or silly scenes - just no-nonsense suspense & scare.
The visual photography of the flying spheres is seen best in this Phantasm film & the creepy dwarfs are very creepy indeed.
Buy this film but please aviod the thrid installment.

I bought a used one, the DVD as a whole was good. Although it said it was like new, there was a ripped sticker on it. That was the only problem.Published on 17 Mar. 2013 by Ercan
