The Phantasm news is pouring in today, and we’re absolutely loving it. Don Coscarelli’s legendary creation has long been a favorite with horror fans. From the menacing Tall Man, to the brain drilling, flying spheres to that gorgeous ’71 Barracuda, everything rocks about this movie. Especially the trailer of the newly restored 4K trailer!
You can get a look at that trailer below.
Seeing as this is a high end restoration, you can safely bet that the cast and crew hasn’t changed. But you’d better believe the look and sound of this highly anticipated restoration is absolutely stunning.
If you’re one of the very, very few who have never given Coscarelli’s Phantasm a look, now is the time to do so.
Well, not now, now, but October 7th, when the film returns to the big screen, or on October 4th, just a few days prior to theatrical release, when the film lands on Digital HD and On Demand.
Don Coscarelli writes and directs. A. Michael Baldwin, Bill Thornbury, Reggie Bannister and Angus Scrimm star.
Synopsis: Mike, a young teenage boy who has just lost his parents, afraid to lose his brother follow him to a funeral, where Mike witnesses the Tall Man lifting a coffin on his own. Mike decides to investigate, and discovers that the Tall Man, protected by his flying spheres, is shrinking dead bodies down to half their normal size and reanimating them as slaves. It is then up to Mike, his brother, and Reggie the ice cream man to stop the Tall man.
