[Mike & Liz are in the back of a hearse after escaping the mortuary & the Tall Man. Reggie has just been attacked by Alchemy in the hearse's front & thrown out of the car]
One minute... we're gonna wake up. This is only a dream.
That's right... it's only a dream!

No! It's not!

The Tall man and his balls are back (Err, that's not what it sounds like). This time the action is ramped up, the gore is plentiful, and one of the actors has been replaced. Reggie and Mike are out for revenge, and follow the Tall Man across America, with modified guns and a flamethrower. Looks like they're finally going to get to the bottom of the enigma of Phantasm, right? Wrong! What you do get is more flying spheres attacking folk, more weirdness, bigger set pieces, and a lot of fun. It's not quite up to the quality of the first film, but the sequel certainly holds its own. This time Michael's searching for a girl who's been dreaming about The Tall Man, who is getting bolder and emptying entire towns (not to mention the graveyards). It's hard to describe a plot which involves people chasing each other about, but this time our heroes have also got to contend with the Tall Man's assistants (all of whom meet very gory deaths). The film is a lot more linear than the last one, so 'linear' fans might get a kick out of that.
