Everything you ever wanted to know about Phantasm is right here in this 97-minute feature with interviews from Don Coscarelli, producer Paul Pepperman, Angus Scrimm, Reggie Bannister, Michael Baldwin and Bill Thornbury.
The inspirations, the studio politics, the filming, the SFX, the brilliant score and the characters are all discussed in great length and detail and if your into these films you'll totally love it. All of the interviewees have perfect recollection of most of the events, dating as far back as 28 years ago. Especially interesting is Don Coscarelli's explanations of the evolution of the story as the series progressed and anything the elegant and classy Angus Scrimm says is like listening to an old English professor read poetry from a book, even if he is talking about an inter-dimensional grave-robbing Tall Man.
If only all film documentaries were this way instead of the usual promotional fluff rubbish eh?
