Did You Know?

Trivia:
After the mild box-office results of Phantasm II (1988), Universal Studios chose not to personally pursue a sequel but did offer to distribute it should Don Coscarelli and associates make it themselves. With no casting restrictions this time, Coscarelli offered the role of Mike to his original performer, A. Michael Baldwin, who returned to the role after almost 16 years.See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: At the end of the movie when Tim walks through the double doors there is a toilet in the background which wasn't there in the previous scene, there was a table in its place earlier.See more »
Quotes:
Reggie:Cryogenics. All the mortuaries are into it now. These guys figure they'll wake up in a couple of hundred years with new bodies.See more »

Have no sphere? The sequel's here., 8 April 2009
Author: tyler-and-jack from Edinburgh.

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.
