After the first "Phantasm" started off, the second one has more action than the first one. After being released from a psychiatric hospital, Mike(Jmaes Le Gros) joins Reggie in his souped up Hemi to find the Tall Man(Angus Scrimm). He killed his brother Jody years ago, during his time in the psych ward Mike said he met a girl in his dreams named Alchemy(Samantha Philips). Mike and Reggie go into a pawn shop get all the needed weapons to defeat the Tall Man and his minions. Reggie create the super-shotgun that really puts the "B" in BANG!! Later in the route, they meet another strange woman named Liz(Paula Irvine) who in return is a traitor. However, the real problem is the Tall Man himself. He has in his case three lethal balls: 2 Silver, 1 Gold. This time, the ball attacked anyone, or anything. They didn't care. One of the silver balls attacked The Tall Man. He even crushed it liked it was an empty aluminum can. Another cool thing was the portal scene, and the two bars resemble a tuning fork. Since the Tall Man is also a mortician, it's best to beat him at his game. Another great hit, another thumbs up in the horror world! 5 stars!
