Product Description

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 the Back Cover

Phantasm: When two brothers uncover the startling secret of the living dead following the murder of their friend, what seems like a horrible unending nightmare becomes terrifying reality!

A mortuary's embalming cellar is the site for supernatural evil - including a floating sphere with razor-sharp protruding daggers which seeks out victims and drains the blood from their heads.

As the brothers learn more and more about what is really going on at Morningside Mortuary, they get deeper into trouble... until it may be too late to escape!

Phantasm II: The Tall Man is back with a vengance.

Armed with his lethal band of flying silver spheres, the deadly mortician who was thought to have killed his last victim nine years ago, returns more dangerous than ever.

Once again, young Michael Pearson and his pal Reggie take on the master of the killer orbs as they race against time and risk their lives to thwart his murderous rampage forever.

Phantasm III: Lord of the Dead: Thirteen years after the original nightmare began, Mike and Reggie reunite with the spirit of Mike's dead brother and are pursued by The Tall Man through warped dimensions of space and time.

Who will reign supreme?

Prepare to be scared witless as the fine line between the living and the dead snaps with a vengeance!

Phantasm IV: Oblivion: The nightmare lives on... but humanity may not! The Phantasm saga reaches its terrifying climax in a horrific explosion of gut-wrenching battles, lethal flying spheres and a spine-tingling quest to discover, once and for all, the secret of the mysterious Tall Man.

For years, the Tall Man (Angus Scrimm) has waged a gruesome war against humanity, slowly populating the world with his undead legions. But two determined heroes, Mike (A. Michael Baldwin) and Reggie (Reggie Bannister), have pledged to stop the horrifying onslaught - for good! By hurling themselves through a gateway in the time/space continuum, they're able to unearth a vital clue from their enemy's past that may put an end to the horror. But the Tall Man, not to be so easily defeated, is massing his dark army for a blood-curdling final assault in which Michael and Reggie must fight not only for their own lives, but future of all mankind.

Directed by Phantasm creator Don Coscarelli, and including never-before-seen footage excised from the bone-chilling original, Phantasm: Oblivion is a nerve-shattering horror thriller charged with astonishing special effects and shocking scenes of pure terror. Brace yourself for a journey beyond your worst nightmares!

The Phantasm series is my favourite horror movie series. Much as I love Romero's Dead and Raimi's Evil Dead films, Phantasm's loopy dream logic and anything-goes weirdness beats them hands down (and I like Reggie better than Ash too). However in terms of DVD coverage, the series has been treated poorly - until now.
BIG kudos to Anchor Bay for the stellar job they've done on this release. Every movie is beautifully remastered, and I've noticed a lot more visual detail than ever before - on the VHS release of Phantasm II I couldn't even see that one of the spheres was a different colour to the others!
The supplements are fappo too. The commentaries on all four discs are great, though III does suffer a little from Don Coscarelli's absence. Up & coming Brit cult auteur Jake (Razor Blade Smile, Evil Aliens) West contributes a phantastic doco on the bonus disc, and the other more minor supplements (the Reggie tour etc) are mostly worthwhile. Even some of the easter eggs are substantial featurettes in themselves!
The packaging is beautiful. Who hasn't wanted one of those lovely silver spheres on their shelf? Like all novelty packaging it's a bit suspect for actually storing the DVDs safely, but it looks damn cool - a lot better than Anchor Bay's chintzy Hellraiser puzzlebox.
The movies themselves are the real fappo. My personal favourite is II, because the first time I saw it I felt like I'd already dreamt it. I is a spooky and cool kid's nightmare a la Invaders From Mars and The 5000 Fingers Of Dr. T. III is a fun (if silly) action/comedy entry. IV is a beautiful return to the aesthetics of the original.
These movies are not for those who value coherent storylines and polished Hollywood acting above all else. However if you like a touch (or a huge dollop) of surrealism in your horror, the Phantasm movies are a must.

this has nothing to do with the films- they are all great and any one reading this will already know that. but please be very careful when opening your box as the outer package is so flimsy that it will rip the box open (like mine did) when you try to get inside. just a little warning!

For years I hesitated to purchase this set, especialy after the introduction of Blu-Ray, thinking that the quality would be more or less similar to those of VHS and early DVDs. What a grave misjudgement! The picture quality of 1 and 2 is almost equal to Blu-Ray (I watched on PS3 and Full HD Sony 46V3000) and the sound is the best it could be, so if you ever had a soft spot for The Tall Man and The Spheres don't hesitate. It already hard to find item, so Amazon UK is your last resort, as was to me. No time to wait, trust me!

The perfect collection. All 4 Phantasm Movies with a bonus documentary disc. And they're in a collectible Silver Sphere! And the Sphere has it's own blades!!!
Once again, the Brits have turned out a Phantastic Box Set, that should make USA studios, distributors, and especially greedy studio heads, think about how they release such iconic works as the Phantasm Philms.

In the states we can only get Phantasm 1 and 4. They won't release the other two on DVD. For that reason I bought this set and I'm more than happy. Due to some being better than others I wish they would have made it a trilogy instead. I'm still glad they made the fourth one to clear up loose ends. The sphere is well made with the discs sitting securely in foam. The movies never looked better and DTS sound is more than I could have asked for. You should pick up this set since you may never see it again.

Phantasm: The Complete Collection, is one of the best horror movie series ever created! I've owned this specific "Sphere" collection for several years, however, as it's Region 2 and I live in America which is Region 1, I must wait until I have a multi-region blu-ray DVD player to be able to enjoy this set. Other than that, everything about this set, including and especially the unique "Sphere" case is a must have for any great horror genre fan! "Beware the tall man!" ;)

"A True Find...". I have been looking for this title everywhere only to find it has never been released on DVD in America so it is always nice to know I can reach across the pond and receive it with no problems which I can now enjoy...

A must have for any fan or collector. The sphere is cheap thin plastic, but non the less looks bad ass. The packaging is cool to. I unfortunately have not been able to watch the DVDs but it's because my all region player isn't playing properly, so I have this to leave ok forward to once I get a new player. The shipment was very fast and packed very well, especially coming from overseas. I did have angus scrim sign an autograph on the sphere , so it's a keeper now.
