Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia (at around 1h 3 mins) One very difficult scripted sequence required filming on Wilshire Boulevard, the largest street in Los Angeles, only it had to be devoid of any people. As closing this major thoroughfare would be impossible and massively expensive, Don Coscarelli and his crew came up with a novel approach. Just minutes before sunrise on Thanksgiving holiday morning, the crew was ready to film, guerrilla-style, with the key actors A. Michael Baldwin and Angus Scrimm. They took over the street, without permission, and had ten uninterrupted minutes of filming with absolutely not a soul in sight. They only had that roughly ten minutes to film, but still managed to shoot the scene as they wanted it. See more »
Goofs (at around 54 mins) Reggie tells Jennifer that he has been chasing the Tall Man 'for several years". However, the events of the past three films (Phantasm (1979), Phantasm II (1988), and Phantasm III: Lord of the Dead (1994)) have been portrayed as directly continuous leading back to Mike being released from the mental hospital in Phantasm II with the events of the subsequent films taking place over the course of only a few months.
