Phantom Town is a great movie, It includes, comedy, adventure and most of all HORROR!!!! My eyes where glued to the TV screen from credits to credits. The acting is just mind boggling and the movie has cutting edge special effects. One my memorable moments of the film is when one characters utters "wow! talk about ugly, this thing is worse than my math teacher!!! Hahah. Cracked me up till the end!!! I highly recommend watching this film, however the film is so amazing that it can't be found on DVD or it's hard find on VHS at local video store, and it's to scary for HBO and ICONTROL so you must order it via internet.

" This movie is so amazing, It inspires me to make all my films,If you want! Horror,Comedy and Adventure, please take the time to order this great movie" stated James Edward Seyer, and aspiring filmmaker.

To some it all up. This movie is amazing! and to note, The music and score is awesome!
