Since its release in 1979, director Don Coscarelli’s epic tale of The Tall Man, his deadly silver Sentinel Spheres, and the group small town friends who must band together to stop his dimension-hopping schemes has captivated and terrified horror and sci-fi fans around the world. An immediate success, bringing in 40 times its production budget, the film has influenced generations of filmmakers. Thirty-seven years later, Phantasm has been finally restored to its original glory by J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot and Coscarelli, with a stunning new 4K remaster and 5.1 surround sound mix from the original elements that ensures Phantasm will be around to scare the hell out of generations to come.

The residents of a small town have begun dying under strange circumstances, leading young Mike (Michael Baldwin) to investigate. After discovering that the Tall Man (Angus Scrimm), the town’s mortician, is killing and reanimating the dead as misshapen zombies, Mike seeks help from his older brother, Jody (Bill Thornbury), and local ice cream man Reggie (Reggie Bannister). Working together, they try to lure out and kill the Tall Man, all the while avoiding his minions and a deadly silver sphere.

It debuted at this year’s SXSW and will hit cable/digital platforms on October 7th in the US. We will then be getting it on Blu-ray before the end of the year. The final fifth installment from Coscarelli, Phantasm: Ravager, will also be released in theaters and VOD on that same day.
