Filmmaker Don Coscarelli announced that "Phantasm: Ravager", the long-awaited fifth and final entry in his classic horror Phantasm series, has completed principle photography and you can now check out a teaser poster and trailer below ! For the first time in the franchise's history, a new director is helming the production, one David Hartman. I felt it was time to let someone else play with my train set, noted Coscarelli, who co-wrote the film with Hartman and produced the film under his Silver Sphere banner along with Executive Producer Brad Baruh. David and I go back to my film 'Bubba Ho-Tep'. He did terrific visual effects on that, and more recently created a wild animated sequence and some amazing visual effects in my most recent film, 'John Dies at the End'. Our aesthetics »
The Phantasm franchise started way back in 1979, with Phantasm IV being released 16 years ago in 1998. Although rumours had been around (when are they not?) confirmation of a Phantasm V, titled Phantasm V: Ravager, only arrived on Wednesday. Despite this, the film is well into production with principal photography completed and a trailer already here to knock our socks off.
David Hartman, a man with a background in animation, directs, which seems like a good fit as Hartman worked on VFX for original Phantasm director, Don Coscarelli’s Bubba Ho-tep and John Dies At The End. Franchise regulars Angus Scrimm, Reggie Banister, and Michael Baldwin all return to reprise their roles.
Coscarelli promises some surprise for fans along the way:
[There's an] an extended sequence on the Tall Man’s home world. There are also some surprises thrown in that I promise will astonish long-time fans.

A well-known name among cult horror fans is that of Don Coscarelli. The mind behind acclaimed movies such as Bubba Ho-Tep and John Dies At the End, Coscarelli’s most well-known for the Phantasm series of movies, a franchise that began in 1979 with Phantasm. With the last entry in the series coming in 1998, many wondered if that was the last they had seen from it, particularly with Coscarelli himself moving away from feature filmmaking for a decade. Thus, it came as exciting news to many horror fans when Coscarelli announced that filming on the new movie had been completed. Titled Phantasm: Ravager, Coscarelli hands over the directing reins this time to David Hartman, with the two of them co-writing the screenplay. A teaser trailer for the film has now been released, and can be seen below.

Would you look at this! Filmmaker Don Coscarelli has made a fifth Phantasm movie called Phantasm V: Ravager, and he even released a teaser trailer. He's managed to keep the production of the film under warps for two years. It's really cool to see the Tall Man back.
The franchise started in 1979 under the direction of Coscarelli, he is a producer on this fifth film, but it was directed David Hartman, whobest known for animated series such as Transformers Prime and Roughnecks: Starship Troopers.
Original cast members Michael Baldwin, Bill Thornbury, Kat Lester,and Angus Scrimm are back as is Reggie Bannister as Reggie, whose decades-long search for the sinister Tall Man leads him to the Tall Man’s home world.
In an interview with EW, Coscarelli had this to say,
“I felt it was time to let someone else play with my train set. David and I go back to my film Bubba Ho-Tep. »

Today, an official press release, featuring quotes straight from Coscarelli himself hit the internet, to shed some light on the film. Read on!
(Hollywood, CA) ― “Filmmaker Don Coscarelli announced today that Phantasm: Ravager, the long-awaited fifth and final entry in his classic horror Phantasm series, has completed principle photography. The original Phantasm was a worldwide critical and boxoffice smash, spawning a huge cult of fans around the world and three well received sequels. For the first time in the franchise’s history, a new director is helming the production, one David Hartman. Hartman is a multiple Emmy-nominated animation director, whose work can be seen in such celebrated shows as Transformers Prime and Roughnecks: Starship Troopers. Serious genre fans have long been familiar with Hartman’s edgier output, including two blood-soaked music videos for Rob Zombie (“American Witch,” and “Lords of Salem”), and his illustrations of Steve Niles’ “Strange Cases” for Image Comics. »

For a few years now we’ve been waiting to learn more about Don Coscarelli’s last foray into his Phantasm franchise, but the horror director has been pretty tight lipped when discussing future plans – even denying the existence of Phantasm V: Ravager not too long ago. Can you blame him? Fans have eagerly been awaiting Coscarelli’s last “hoorah” concerning his most fabled property, and there was no reason to open up the floodgate of questions that a fifth film would create – until now.
A few days ago reports of Phantasm V: Ravager surfaced on a few major horror websites, but there was still a smidgen of speculation. Well, consider that doubt completely unnecessary, because we’ve now got the first trailer for David Hartman’s fifth and final Phantasm movie – final as in “if they don’t remake or reboot the franchise somewhere down the road.”

See the headline joke I did there?
Because doing a surprise fifth installment to a horror series is also a move motivated by testicles, the symbol our society has associated with being daring.
I’ve never seen a single Phantasm movie, so this new installment directed by David Hartman, a director who did non-directing work on Bubba Ho-Tep and John Dies at the end by Phantasm Franchise gatekeeper Don Coscarelli. Coscarelli liked what he saw in Harman and let Hartman play in the world of Tall Man and his silver balls.
That is literally all I know about the Phantasm Franchise, which seems okay, because this teaser is more an announcement to fans that there’s more Phantasm on the way, not so much a plea for the uninitiated to start the series with entry 5.

As promised, the first teaser trailer for Phantasm: Ravager is now online.

Plot details are under wraps, but word has it that this film will feature an extended sequence on the Tall Man's home world.

While some horror series fade into obscurity or repetitiveness over time, there are others than fans clamor for year after year. The Evil Dead series is one of those but Phantasm is the one we are actually getting a new film for. Director Don Coscarelli has made some cool movies like Bubba Ho-tep and John Dies At The End, but nothing quite compares to Phantasm. The supernatural/science fiction horror series follows a core group of characters as they battle the evil Tall Man (Angus Scrimm). »

When the surprise news broke earlier this week that a fifth Phantasm movie — called Phantasm: Ravager — was not just in the works but had actually been completed, it raised an awful lot of questions. Who directed the latest entry in the beloved cult horror franchise about the ghoulish, mysterious Tall Man and his lethal flying spheres? Which previous actors from the series (if any) would be making an appearance in the film? And when might we see some footage from the first Phantasm movie in 16 years?

Directors like Christopher Nolan and J.J. Abrams have carved out a reputation for secrecy. Cagey about the plots of their films and only lightly dropping hints if they say anything at all, they send fans into a fervour. It can’t always work (everybody had twigged the Talia/Khan twists in The Dark Knight Rises/Star Trek Into Darkness respectively), but when it does it’s a delight.
In these spoiler heavy times, with the twist of the latest releases a click away, it’s very much appreciated. Other filmmakers don’t seem as bothered about shrouding their films in secrecy (or simply don’t have the clout to pull it off). Trailers burn the big set pieces to our retinas months in advance and entire online communities piece together the plot as if pre-release material is a puzzle in need of solving.
Some films take it even further. »

The fifth installment in the classic horror series 'Phantasm' has supposedly sneaked right up under us all. 'Phantasm V: Ravager' is finally in the can after years of rumours when the latest chapter was first announced back in 2008. But what's more surprising is that in spite of the fact that writer/director Don Coscarelli ('John Dies at the End') helmed all of the previous movies in the franchise he appears to have handed the reigns over to artist David Hartman who has both written and directed this continuing tale. There's been no confirmation just yet on the cast list however most of the original cast members will be putting in appearances as well as other Coscarelli regulars. More details to come. »
I remember hearing about rumblings of Phantasm V in the past few years. One rumor is that Coscarelli was shooting it pieces at a time. Today, Phans got a teaser that exclusively premiered on Ain’t It Cool News and other news from Shock Till You Drop. Read below for the summary and why Coscarelli might not be in the director’s chair.
Here’s the poster:
Here’s the info (courtesy of Phantasm Archives):
The “Lady in Lavender” will be in this entry To reiterate, this project has been filming little by little since 2008. The original working title for several years was “Reggie’s Tales.” The original cast members put in appearances along with some Don Coscarelli regulars. It was partly filmed in Crestline, CA at Reggie Bannister’s own home! Many of the familiar series elements are back… the ‘Cuda and the sphere especially. Oh, yes… there will be blood! »
