Did You Know?

The flying hearse was performed by stuntman Bob Ivy. Using a seven foot tall "pipe ramp," he managed to get the massive hearse airborne and it traveled over one hundred and sixty feet through the air. Ivy later played the "Demon Trooper" in Phantasm IV: Oblivion (1998) and the title role in Bubba Ho-Tep (2002).See more »

weakest link, 7 November 2002
Author: Charles ( from edmond, ok

i remember being pumped up about seeing the original cast of mike and jody returning to the phantasm series but being just as dissapointed with this 3rd installment.for one you have too many villains to deal's not just the TALL MAN but these hoodlums which eventually turn into zombies working for the tall man.the TALL MAN doesn't need any more people helping him other than those dwarfs and it just takes away from his character.the spheres are back and just as impressive but this film is just a liitle too campy and does not satisfy your loyal phanatics like myself.the little boy character was a nice addition so he could tag along with reggie and help our hero, but the rocky character should have been left is somewhat humorous watching reggie trying to snag her throughout the flick.good special effects for a low-budget movie and somewhat entertaining but not containing any real suspense and that weirdness factor if you will that the first one had and the second one had as well.definately the weakest in the series but does get you ready for the fourth one {OBLIVION}which is considerably better. by the way from the second to the third film i notice that reggie has been forking out some major cash without having any kind of job, i guess a retired ice cream vendor could have some kind of stash hidden away for retirement.
