It maybe remaster, but it's the same old horrific drill in 1979's Phantasm.

It maybe remastered, but Phantasm’s (1979) sphere of influence remains the same!

Written and directed by Don Coscarelli, 1979’s Phantasm stars Michael Baldwin, Reggie Bannister, Bill Thornbury and the inimitable Angus Scrimm.

At a funeral, Mike (Baldwin), watches as a tall mortician clad in black (Scrimm) tosses the unburied coffin into a waiting hearse as if it were nothing. Seeking the truth behind this unusual sight, Mike breaks into the mortuary, where he comes face-to-face with the sinister Tall Man. After barely managing to escape with his life, Mike enlists the help of his brother, Jody (Thornbury), and their friend Reggie (Bannister). Together they set out to uncover the secrets of the Tall Man and those who dwell in his hellish world.

  • Audio Commentary with Director Don Coscarelli and cast members Michael Baldwin, Angus Scrimm, & Bill Thornbury
  • Graveyard Cars
