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.

Trivia

To reduce costs, the movie score was basically a reuse of the material composed by Fred Myrow and Christopher L. Stone for the previous sequel Phantasm II (1988). Apart from some minor changes and additions made to the existent tracks, only a few minutes of original music were written. See more »

I Shouldn't Have To Defend This
29 September 1998 | by (Manchester, England) – See all my reviews

Would people give this film a break? It is an exercise in fear, that has been realized quite fantastically (no pun intended). The humour is all laugh out loud stuff, and the effects seem to induce more wincing than any gore fest I can name (shame I've only seen the cut version). The locations are breath taking, the characters somehow more life like than they should be. It's no masterpiece sure, but it's a really good film. And heck Angus Scrimm beats Robert Englund or Kane Hodder any day.
