A group of scientists have developed the Resonator, a machine which allows whoever is within range to see beyond normal perceptible reality. But when the experiment succeeds, they are immediately attacked by terrible life forms.
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 steals the corpses with help of his terrible dwarfs. 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? Written by

When Mike is in the room with the female cadaver, after he looks at the girl and walks back towards the door one of her legs moves when she's supposed to be dead. This happens just before the camera shot is fully on Mike by the door. See more »
Well, if you ask me, this is the second best in the series, next to PHANTASM OBLIVION. It holds a more "dramatic" sense of death and reality than the 3rd or 1st PHANTASM. And it also holds the birth of the infamous "quadro-barreled shotgun" that has been one of Reggie Bannisters trademarks. All in all, a good plot, good action, great effects, and a new look at the series.
