Jim's Great! Reggie's Better.
27 April 1999 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

One of his earlier pieces, Don Coscarelli (of Phantasm Phame) has a knack for seeing the world through the eyes and heart of a young boy. He offers a Peter Pan-esque adventure to men from the boomers to present day, with each generation being introduced to a more innocent time.

Little known fact, Reggie Bannister (Reggie of Phantasm) appears bringing that flavorful polished character to compliment that of Angus Scrimm. It's an unverified rumored that Bannister had something to do with the soundtrack as well.

Copies are hard to find, but, if you have one. . . treat it as a treasure! Neat films like this are rare today.
