Phantasm: A Beginner’s Guide

Ben Robins with a beginner’s guide to Phantasm

One of cult fandom’s most dearly loved horror franchises has finally been given the blu-ray upgrade it deserves this year, off the back of not just a brand new sequel, but also a J.J. Abrams-backed 4K restoration of the original. Spanning five movies, countless casting back and forths, and nearly 40 years of production woes and seriously devoted fan conventions, the Phantasm series has finally, at long last, pulled to a close.

And whilst it might not be quite as expansive (or as widely known) as a lot of the genre’s other heavy-hitters like Friday the 13th, Halloween or A Nightmare on Elm Street, Don Coscarelli’s Phantasm movies hold a special place in horror lore, as not just one of the only long-running franchises to be consistently owned and controlled by the same person, but also as one

'Phantasm' director Don Coscarelli on the 'blessing and curse' of his cult horror series

  • Hitfix
'Phantasm' director Don Coscarelli on the 'blessing and curse' of his cult horror series
Though he was just 25 years old when Phantasm hit theaters, many don't know that the cult 1979 horror film was actually director Don Coscarelli's third movie. In fact, at the age of 19, he became the youngest director ever to have a film distributed by a major studio (a statistic that's often been alleged but which I cannot independently confirm) when Universal acquired his teen drama Jim, the World's Greatest for distribution. That film, which was financed by Coscarelli's father -- who put up the money for production after having "a good year in the stock market," in Coscarelli's words -- landed the teenage filmmaker and his co-director Craig Mitchell an office on the studio's lot to finish the movie. It was an unusually auspicious Big Hollywood start to a career that ended up taking a less-mainstream turn as the years went on. "I've been working my way downward ever since,

‘Phantasm’ Lives! Why This Genre-Bending Franchise Stands the Test of Time

  • Indiewire
‘Phantasm’ Lives! Why This Genre-Bending Franchise Stands the Test of Time
In 1979, Don Coscarelli was 23 years old when he made a haunting, off-beat tale of two brothers facing off against an inter-dimensional threat known as The Tall Man, who Angus Scrimm (Coscarelli’s best friend) played with psychopathic intensity. “Phantasm” became a cult phenomenon, spawning four sequels; the purported finale, “Phantasm: Ravager” (Well Go USA), opens this week. But Scrimm’s no longer around to help promote it, and Coscarelli’s left on his own to contemplate a rocky career.

Whether or not it’s truly the last, “Ravager” does mark Scrimm’s final performance. The actor died in January at the age of 89, not long after production wrapped. When “Phantasm: Ravager” premiered at Fantastic Fest in Austin, alongside a new 4k restoration of the original film (aided by Jj Abrams’ production studio, Bad Robot), the screenings had the air of a wake.

Movie Review – Phantasm: Ravager (2016)

Phantasm: Ravager, 2016.

Directed by David Hartman.

Starring Angus Scrimm, Reggie Bannister, A. Michael Baldwin, Bill Thornbury, Kathy Lester and Gloria Lynne Henry.

Synopsis:

For 37 years, audiences have followed small town friends Reggie, Mike, and Jody in their quest to stop the evil, dimension-hopping schemes of The Tall Man (Angus Scrimm in his final performance) and his armada of killer Sentinel Spheres. Now, Don Coscarelli’s acclaimed horror/sci-fi Phantasm franchise comes to a close in a truly epic finale, a multi-dimensional battle across multiple timelines, alien planets, and altered realities, where no less than the fate of Earth is on the line.

A beloved horror movie franchise with devoted “phans” the worldwide over, the Phantasm series got off to a stellar start in 1979 with Don Coscarelli’s original Phantasm that had a nightmarish narrative and a vivid story straight from the grave concerning two brothers – Jody (Bill Thornbury) and Mike

Scream Season 2 Episode 9 Review: The Orphanage

  • TVfanatic
Who's planning to add Phantasm 2 to their Netflix account in order to check out this supposedly great sex scene?

Noah is officially no longer a virgin, and if we are to believe the rules of Scream, that means he's a goner. 

The promo following Scream Season 2 Episode 9 sure didn't look good for him.

Being that this killer seems to have a habit of leaving people alive, I'm choosing to believe Noah will live, too. He's too big a character to die this early. 

It feels like each character is taking a turn as the prime suspect, and they are really trying to make us buy into the "Emma's killing people in her sleep" theory. People have been guessing that Emma's been behind this all season and that she just doesn't realize it, but I personally have not jumped on that ship. 

Going that route would feel cheap. Sidney was never the killer,

32 Things We Learned From The Beastmaster Commentary

As with most things in life, the fault rests with Brian Salisbury. I’ve had Don Coscarelli‘s The Beastmaster on the brain since late January when Salisbury and Robert Cargill covered the movie on their Junkfood Cinema podcast, and the recent announcement of a beautiful new 4k restoration of Coscarelli’s most famous film, Phantasm, sealed the deal. It was time to re-watch some Coscarelli. My favorite of his films is also his most recent, John Dies at the End, but I decided to go back to the one I thoroughly enjoyed as a pre-teen thanks to its PG-rated sword, sorcery, and topless bathing action. Coscarelli is always a fun listen — we’ve previously covered his commentaries for Phantasm and Phantasm II — and he’s joined here by his frequent collaborator, Paul Pepperman. Keep reading to see what I heard on The Beastmaster commentary. The Beastmaster (1982) Commentator: Don Coscarelli (director, co-writer
