'Phantasm II' (1988) Review

25 April 2014 12:02 AM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Reviewed By: Chris Wright, Morehorror.com

Directed By: Don Coscarelli

Written By: Don Coscarelli

Starring: James Le Gros (Mike), Reggie Bannister (Reggie), Angus Scrimm (The Tall Man), Paula Irvine (Liz), Samantha Phillips (Alchemy), Kenneth Tigar (Father Meyers), Ruth C. Engel (Grandma), Mark Anthony Major (Mortician), Rubin Kushner (Grandpa), Stacey Travis (Jeri), J. Patrick McNamara (Psychologist)

“You think when you die you go to heaven? You come to us!” “Phantasm II” picks up initially where the original left off; despite the fact the original was made 9 years prior to this film, which quickly fast forwards to the present. It’s risky tackling a sequel after this much time has passed, but Don Coscarelli pulled it off pretty good. It helped further solidify my love for this series!

The plot takes place with Mike (James LeGros) leaving his psychiatry unit after all these years after he convinces them he no longer believes »

The Horror! Tornadoes and The Tall Man Haunt Trailers for Into the Storm and Phantasm: Ravager

28 March 2014 12:17 PM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

This summer will see plenty of comic book movies and assorted blockbusters, but for those who enjoy more genre fare, enter Into the Storm. Opening August 8, the movie follows the town of Silverton as its inhabitants attempt to survive the mother of all tornadoes. The "found footage" thriller stars The Walking Dead's Sarah Wayne Callies as a meteorologist who pairs with a storm chaser (Veep's Matt Walsh) in order to track tornado data. "It's a bit of a contentious marriage of convenience," Callies told USA Today.

Enter The Hobbit's Richard Armitage, who plays an assistant school principal in search of his son during the tornado onslaught. According to director Steven Quale (Final Destination 5), what "Gravity did to space, [Into the Storm] will do to natural phenomena and weather."

While that is quite a boast, Quale apparently got a vote of confidence from his mentor, James Cameron, who, according to the director, »

Beware the Balls! The First Phantasm V: Ravager Teaser Trailer is Here!

27 March 2014 2:48 PM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Surprise, fanboys! One day after the first poster for “Phantasm V: Ravager” appeared online, the teaser trailer for the next installment of the long-running horror franchise popped up on the web. Since we don’t want to be one of the few outlets who aren’t covering this thing, you can check out the aforementioned clip below. Of course, I can’t wait to get my hands on “Ravager.” This genre-obsessed geek has had silver balls on the brain since “Phantasm II.” The most recent chapter of Don Coscarelli’s series arrived way back in 1998. Although I’ve changed a lot since those days, I still have plenty of time in my schedule for “Phantasm.” Reggie Bannister, Michael Baldwin, Bill Thornbury, Kat Lester, and the seemingly immortal Angus Scrimm are all back for “Ravager.” Although it’s anyone’s guess what in the world is happening in the teaser trailer, »

'Phantasm: Ravager' cast details and teaser trailer -- Exclusive Video

27 March 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

When the surprise news broke earlier this week that a fifth Phantasm movie  — called Phantasm: Ravager — was not just in the works but had actually been completed, it raised an awful lot of questions. Who directed the latest entry in the beloved cult horror franchise about the ghoulish, mysterious Tall Man and his lethal flying spheres? Which previous actors from the series (if any) would be making an appearance in the film? And when might we see some footage from the first Phantasm movie in 16 years?

EW can confirm that Phantasm: Ravager is directed by filmmaker and artist David Hartman, »

Watch: A Vintage 'Entertainment Tonight' Preview of the Special Effects-Packed Movies of 1988

20 February 2014 2:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Prepare for another blast of '80s nostalgia thanks to someone's old VHS copy of a 1988 episode of Entertainment Tonight dedicated to the special effects-packed movies of the summer: The Blob, A Nightmare on Elm Street 4, Die Hard, Phantasm II, and, um, Big Business starring Bette Middler and Lily Tomlin. And while this video is fun just for the sheer '80s-ness of it, it's actually a pretty stark reminder of how great some of these special effects are, even by today's standards. I've long felt that The Blob is one of the best horror movies of its decade, though a lot of my love for it comes down to the script and the earnestness of everything. The incredible practical effects are only a bonus. And then there's Elm Street 4, which has some really wild...
