Most Creative, and Inventive of the Series, a must see for Phantasm fans
Most people note the humor in this picture as a downfall to the series... or the zombies which were never before seen. but what people don't know is that all the writing and strangeness has already been pre-thought out by series creator Don Coscarelli. If you want you could call this a fault on the series, but in my opinion as long as the original creator is coming up with the ideas it's alright, because he's the inventor of the franchise, he can do what ever he wants... he can't ruin the mythology of the Tall Man he can only expand it.
the good things about this film are the magnificent return of the original Mike Pearson (A. Michael Baldwin). Plus Bill Thornbury Mikes brother Jody. All the action, Set Decoration, SETS IN GENERAL... THE CHARACTERS... THE STORY, and the surprises. i don't want to go into too much detail on the plot because i don't want to spoil it for you... but the reasons most people give this movie flak are stupid. when you watch this film compared to the others you will see a big difference, this movies is in a little way the epic phantasm movie... seeing the building of the 'warriors' with Reggie and his crew... and the final battle... they could have ended the series with this one, but Coscarelli has bigger finale plans for his phantasm fans and we just might see that sooner then you think.
i hope this helps.
