Storyline

Mike is released from psychiatry, when he agrees with the doctors that the terrible happenings in his past were just in his imagination. But once he's free, he contacts Redge and they team up to hunt down and eliminate the "Tall Man", who plunders the graveyards and steals the corpses with help of his terrible dwarfs. A beautiful strange girl starts to appear in Mike's dreams. He assumes she's in danger and needs their help - will they find her before the Tall Man can do her any harm?

Trivia

(at around 55 mins) The scene in which Father Myers has one of his ears cut off by a sphere was shot by having the actor lying on a table, with the camera lying on its side, giving him the appearance of standing upright. The sphere was then just dropped by his head and the fake ear appliance was pulled off his head with monofilament by the effects crew. The sequence ended up having to be filmed twice because the key scene of the sphere passing by his head and the ear being cut off occurred in the split-second between frames on the film of the first take.

Goofs

(at around 14 mins) When Reg and Mike break into the hardware store for tools, the items in the trolley keep on changing from shot to shot, and also change position too. See more »

Lots of Blood & Plenty of GORE!
19 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

Decided to tape this film early in the AM television programing and was greatly surprised at the entire plot. If you love graveyards, and watching steel balls flying through the air that can make your insides turn in a few minutes to Swiss Cheese, this film is definitely for YOU! James LeGros,(Mike),"Sexual Life",'04 and Paula Irvine(Liz),"Party Lamp",'86 put their hearts and soul into their roles and experienced horrible situations you will never forget. I missed all the other Phantasm flicks,however, I do intend to catch up and view all the present and past other Horrible "Phantasm" films. If you are a nut about blood and seeing human bodies crumble in front of your very eyes, THIS IS YOUR FILM! ENJOY!!!
