Taking off immediately where the last one ended, in this episode Mike travels across dimensions and time fleeing from the Tall Man, at the same time he tries to find the origins of his enemy, and what really happened the night that his brother died. Meanwhile, Reggie (accompanied by a beauty he picked up on the road) battles the spheres and the undead in a quest to find Mike before the Tall Man can complete his transformation. Written by

When Mike and Jodi are walking through the "deserted" town, supposedly everyone in town has been killed by The Tall Man, when the Tall Man walks down the centre of the street you can see an old lady pushing an empty shopping cart, and a car driving around a corner in the distance. See more »
The opening credits say 'PHANTASM', then the roman numerals 'IV' (for four) come cascading down from above onto the screen right below the word 'PHANTASM', then the subtitle 'OBLIVION' appears, with the roman numeral IV forming the 'i' and the 'v' in the word OblIVion See more »

I am one of the world's biggest fans of the original Phantasm. But I have to admit, that the sequels really do nothing for me.
Number four is the closest thing to the original. It lives the same world, but isn't distracted by pop culture phenomena of the time the way 2 & 3 seemed to be influenced/commentating on 'Evil Dead' and 'Home Alone'.
As much as I like seeing the Tall Man, Reggie and Mike back in action, Jody still seems forced into the series. I really wish that Coscarelli had just left him dead and moved on. The whole 'living ball' thing is plain silly.
