Alternate Versions

A bootlegged work print features several additional scenes not included in the wide release, minus sound effects or background music. There are also additional shots of gore that were snipped in order to avoid an "X" rating. Scenes included are:
  • After the house blows up in the beginning, there is no Funeral scene. After Reggie runs out, Mike runs out and Reggie says he knew it before it was going to happen. Mike tells Reggie that they could probably die trying to find The Tall Man and Reggie replys "Hey, we all got to go sometime".


  • After Mike encounters the Liz look-alike and sees the Worm-type creature crawl out of her back and Reggie torches him with the flamethrower, Mike wakes up finding out it was all a dream and Reggie tells him to get ready as he's ready to leave in his car.


  • There is a rumored scene that Mike has a dream that he makes love with Liz all over the World.


  • The sphere attack on Father Meyers is also much gorier. We see a much bigger geyser of blood spurt out the back of the sphere and we see a huge puddle of blood forming in front of him.


  • When Mike & Liz are sleeping in the abandoned Manor they along with Liz & Reggie take refuge in, after Mike kisses Liz, they have a Telepathic love scene and after it finishes, Liz tells Mike "That's about the safest sex we'll ever have".


  • When the gold "Ripper" sphere drives itself into the Caretaker's back and sends him flying across the Casket Room, we see a lot more blood squirt from his body.


  • After The Tall Man's body is pumped full of acid and Mike, Reggie & Liz escape with Alchemy in the Hearse, we see a new Tall Man come out of the Space Gate and we see him throwing the dead Tall Man into it. This scene can be seen at the beginning of Phantasm III: Lord Of The Dead.


  • Alchemy removes more skin from her face and it soon reveals that it was actually The Tall Man who had tricked Mike, Reggie & Liz. This scene was removed because director Don Coscarelli felt it looked too fake.


When The Tall Man confronts Father Myers he says "You think that when you die, you go to heaven. Go go to us". There are several different alternate takes of The Tall Man confronting Father Myers. In one of the other alternate takes Father Myers calls him "The Devil". The Tall Man replies "Ah, a person from your mythology. Too bad, not even he can help you priest".
Television version is very heavily cut and removes nearly all the gore. Differences in Television version are:
  • When Mike storms into the Embalming Room in the old abandoned Mortuary, the dead Woman's body has a cloth sheet over her.


  • The Worm creature instantly pops out of the fake Liz's back and the scene where he crawls out is completely cut.


  • Father Meyers' sphere attack is almost completely cut. The shot of his ear flying is removed as is the drilling on his head.


  • Alchemy doesn't remove her top when walking up the stairs with Reggie.


  • When Reggie & Alchemy are having sex in the room in the abandoned Manor, Alchemy has a top on and the shots of her in her panties are completely removed.


  • When Mike & Reggie are chasing The Tall Man in their car and Reggie points his 4-barreled shotgun at The Tall Man in his Hearse, Mike hollars "Shoot Him!" instead of "Shoot The F**ker!"


  • The shot of the Caretaker burning to death in the Furnace is cut completely.


  • The silver sphere drilling the Caretaker's hand in the Hallway is also cut.


  • The gold "Ripper" sphere sawing it's way into the Caretaker's back is cut. However, we do see the gruesome shot of the drill in his mouth after Mike pulls him back.


  • The Tall Man's death is cut very heavily. The shots of his skin peeling off and his eyes exploding are completely removed.
