Storyline

The Tall Man, that imposing menace from Morningside Mortuary, is back and once again haunting the thoughts of the now-adult Mike and his friend, ex-Ice Cream vendor Reggie. The two continue their hunt for the mysterious figure and in his path of destruction encounter a variety of dangerous situations, friends and enemies. They also must contend with the resurrected dead plus a growing number of the infamous and deadly silver spheres which aid the Tall Man as he sets his sights on indoctrinating Mike and finishing the fight begun so many years ago.

Have no sphere? The sequel's here.
8 April 2009 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

With the removal of studio interference we get the return of A. Michael Baldwin to the lead role alongside series regulars Reggie Bannister and Angus Scrimm as our intrepid heroes continue to chase down (or, indeed, are actually taken away by) "The Tall Man" and try to figure out a way to stop him once and for all.

We have a few new characters (and one character we thought we would never see again, played yet again by Bill Thornbury) thrown into the mix, including a young kid who appears in a bizarre, and gory, riff on Home Alone and some more of them pleasing womenfolk we like to see appearing in our genre outings.

More characters and even more revelations does not stop Coscarelli filling every scene with the fruits of his unbelievably fertile imagination and fans of the series should not be worried; this features even more bizarre moments of horror, even more carnage from the killer spheres and even more blood and guts nastiness. As I said in reviewing the first movie, and as applies equally here, "Phantasm" is really a Ghost Train ride of a movie. They may lose their edge slightly as the heroes continue to escape ever-increasing perils and Coscarelli has to once again magic up some explanation for a character's survival but they remain top-notch entertainment and great fun for fans.

See this if you like: Phantasm, Phantasm II, Bubba Ho-tep.
