Storyline

Mike is released from psychiatry, when he agrees with the doctors that the terrible happenings in his past were just in his imagination. But once he's free, he contacts Redge and they team up to hunt down and eliminate the "Tall Man", who plunders the graveyards and abducts the sleeping with help of his terrible gnomes. A beautiful strange girl starts to appear in Mike's dreams. He assumes she's in danger and needs their help - will they find her before the Tall Man can do her any harm?

The best of the Series!
20 February 2002 | by (Everett, WA) – See all my reviews

Phantasm II is, In my Opinion, the absolute best of the series. Why? The Ammo! I love the Creative weapons the Characters Use, as well as the "Flying Spheres". The Suspense! I've heard A lot of people Complain on other Comments for this movie that this Movie was not Suspenseful, to say the least, they are Wrong, and are NOT True Horror Fans! I Also like the Plot, Setting, Script, and, of course, The Truly Scary Climaxes.

I Also enjoyed the fact that this Movie "played" with the ending of the Original. Is This Movie something that could be called a Cult Classic? Yes. Any Horror Fan Who has not seen this Movie needs to pick this Stuff up Today! I was very Pleased to see that the Tall Man made it on an Essential horror D.V.D. entitled "Boogeymen". If You saw Part One and were Disappointed, Don't give up hope.

SEE THIS MOVIE

As Far as others in the Series go; Part One is rather Average; Part Two is the best; Three is Okay, but better than Part One; And Part Four (A.K.A. "Phantasm: Oblivion") is better than Part Three, but Slightly worse than this One.

I give this 10 out of 10.

Fans of this Might like: Puppet Master, Leprechaun, Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, The Dead hate the Living, Night of the living Dead, Slumber Party Massacre, Sorority House Massacre, The Evil Dead I and II, City of the Living Dead, Prison of the Dead, Hideous!, The Dentist, Child's Play, and Head of the Family. For recommendations on other Titles, please check the other movies I Have comments on by clicking on my name above this Comment Section.

!!!!SEE THIS MOVIE!!!!
