Don Coscarelli has a knack for seeing the world through the eyes and heart of a young boy. He offers a Peter Pan-esque adventure to men from the boomers to present day, with each generation being introduced to a more innocent time.
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 Reggie is pulled over, he gives the cop his license and registration through the window. As he is waiting he can't see the policeman in his rear-view mirror. As he is getting ready to get out of the car to check, the window is still cracked about 6 inches. But when the scene cuts to him opening the door, the window is all of the way up. See more »
We better move away from the car before the gasoline blows.
Wait! I thought cars only blew up like that in the movies!

Yeah, me too.

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 »

If you remember the first movie at all, and you approach this movie with an open mind, you will find OblIVion quite satisfying. Though not as atmospheric as the first movie, there are several creepy scenes scattered throughout, including the opening scene and a dream sequence involving Reggie. In addition, there are several scenes from Phantasm (I) cleverly woven into the storyline creating continuity between the two films. Some, but not all questions are cryptically answered, which steadfastly adheres to the "nothing is as it seems",non linear flow to the movies. It definitely leaves room for one last movie. Maybe the last movie can spell it out (or at least somewhat) for "phans" needing closure.
In conclusion, if your not a fan of the Phantasm movies, or are just randomly renting movies out of boredom, I strongly suggest you don't bother and keep your cynicism to yourself. But if your willing to at least watch the first film, or if your addicted to Phantasm I, Phantasm IV will clearly keep you wanting more.
