When a sixteen year-old boy and his two young siblings set off on a quest to find their missing parents, their search leads them to a ghost town in the middle of the desert. They soon discover that this is no ordinary tourist spot. In fact, according to the maps, it doesn't exist at all! Finding their way into this mysterious place, the kids must confront the sinister force that dwells beneath it in order to rescue their parents - and save themselves.

Awesome Movie!
25 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Phantom Town" was a great movie. I've had the VHS for a couple years but never watched it until now. It was great! The acting was good, the storyline was good, the ending was good. I give it a 9/10. I strongly suggest you watch this movie soon. They really need to put it on DVD now. :) The story begins when a sixteen year old boy and his two siblings hear that their parents are missing, with the only thing they know being that they had went to a town called Long Hand. SO the children go to rescue their parents. What they don't know about Long Hand is that everyone there are zombie-like creatures trying to take the children's souls. You really need to watch this movie right away.
