Did You Know?

Trivia After a very mixed fan reaction and some harsh criticism received in relation to Phantasm III: Lord of the Dead (1994), Don Coscarelli decided that he had already gone too far in the action/comedy direction. Subsequently, he wanted to bring the saga "back to its roots" crafting a low budget sequel more focused in the horror and surrealist aspects of the story, in the vein of Phantasm (1979). At the same time, plenty of unused footage from the original film was located after having being lost for years. The conjunction of both things ultimately became the basis for Phantasm IV: Oblivion (1998). 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.
