(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.

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!!!
