Arrow releasing Phantasm Limited Edition Collection on Blu-ray

20 January 2017 8:14 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Arrow Video has announced that it is bringing all five Phantasm films together on Blu-ray for the very first time this April with a limited edition collection, complete with a brand new 4K restoration of the 1979 original overseen by Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams.

See Also: Order the Phantasm Collection via Amazon UK

Spanning 37 years, Don Coscarelli’s Phantasm series is as iconic as it is entertaining. With its killer flying spheres, undead dwarf minions and The Tall Man himself, it’s packed full of memorable images and moments that make it a cult horror series that stands the test of time.

From 1979’s Phantasm to 2016’s Phantasm: Ravager, creator and director Don Coscarelli keeps the tale of Mike and Reggie’s (A. Michael Baldwin and Reggie Bannister) fight against The Tall Man (Angus Scrimm), his undead dwarf minions and his killer spheres truly epic. It »

Newswire: The Phantasm box set will come to us in March

18 January 2017 11:03 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Right on heels of the Blu-ray release of both Phantasm Remastered and Phantasm: Ravager, writer/director Don Coscarelli has announced that a six-disc box set of the sci-fi horror series is due out this spring. The Phantasm Collection will feature all five films, presumably including both the original 1979 version of Phantasm as well as the 2016 remastered edition. The sixth disc will “[bring] together cast and crew to look back and celebrate the Phantasm franchise, including commentaries and new featurettes.”

It’ll be interesting to see what makes its way onto the sixth disc: The original film had a constantly evolving script (star Reggie Bannister doesn’t recall even seeing one), and the original cut was much longer than the 96-minute final product. Some of those scenes made their way onto previous Phantasm home video releases, and some were reconstituted into the sequels—a technique used to particularly remarkable ...

Scott’s Favorites of 2016

4 January 2017 3:16 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Hey there, everyone! I sincerely hope this finds you all well (or at least coping) and eager (or at least willing) to take on a new year. I love doing year-end lists. For me, it’s a time of reflection, as well as expansion. Since I started with Daily Dead in April of 2015, my horror-view continues to grow; I’ve been so fortunate to meet and speak with some enduring legends of the genre, not to mention strike many new friendships through social media. But what my continuing immersion in this greatest of cultures has provided above all else is an appreciation for the variety and depth horror has to offer. It really has been a great year; unfortunately, I’ve missed some goodies, but dammit, I tried. So, without anymore ado whatsoever, here are a few (okay, a lot) of my favorite things from 2016.

The Driller Killer

3 January 2017 9:54 AM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

It’s icky, drippy and grindingly gross — and will make your forehead itch — but Abel Ferrara’s Bowery-set dime store horror opus has withstood the test of time. It’s a decent enough psychodrama, if one can set aside all the psychological-philosophical booshwah that’s leaked into horror criticism. Oops, Savant’s guilty of that too.

The Driller Killer

Blu-ray + DVD

Arrow Video

1979 / Color / 1:85 widescreen / 101, 96 min. / Street Date December 13, 2017 / 39.95

Cinematography Ken Kelsch, Jimmy Spears

Film Editor Jimmy Laine, Orlando Gallini

Directed by Abel Ferrara

As some may have noticed, I’ve mellowed on the output of low-budget and independent horror efforts from the 1970s. While I was in film school bending my own tastes toward high production values and artistic merit, some crazy young filmmakers, »

Jonathan’s Favorites of 2016

2 January 2017 1:41 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

We're back with our annual list of favorites here on Daily Dead. For those that are new to Daily Dead, we handle our year-end lists differently here. Rather than just covering films, our lists can extend to TV, games, collectibles, events, and anything else genre-related. In short, we’re sharing with you a list of our favorite horror experiences from 2016.

Check back every day this week to find out what made the cut for the rest of the Daily Dead team.

Train to Busan: I predict that we’ll look back at 2016 as the year when zombie-mania started its decline from the insane levels we saw when The Walking Dead regularly smashed its own ratings records and World War Z was a surprise box office success. With that said, don’t let zombie fatigue keep you from boarding the Train to Busan.
