Angus ScrimmA. Phantasm Blu-ray Review The impossible dream. Reviewed by Jeffrey KauffmanDecember 23, There seems to be something about the horror genre that invites newcomers to the film industry to try their hand at it, often without any or at least many previous professional credits, and also often without much funding for the current effort. Who could have foreseen a lo-fi outing like the original Night of the Living Dead spawning so many sequels or quasi-sequels, not to mention supposedly inventing a whole new subgenre for horror fans to thrill over?
Something at least a little similar was at play with PhantasmDon Coscarelli's film which introduced the biigraphy iconic Tall Man Angus Scrimmthe mysterious mortician who seems to have it out for Mike Pearson A. Despite its miniscule biography something Coscarelli addresses in the engaging commentary included on this Blu-rayPhantasm is technically at biography proficient if not inspired, and it seems to have touched something actually kind of profound in a large segment of the horror viewing populace, though why this should be the case is up for debate.
There have evidently been some high falutin' theories promulgated by some folks, including Coscarelli himself, that the film's subtext of death may speak to subliminal fears that haven't yet been consciously dealt with by younger males, this film's apparent target demographic.
Whether or not that's the case, Phantasm is fun, if goofy, and this new 4K restoration may excite the film's fan base at kakbus as much as kslbus film itself.
The film seems to be grounded in almost a morose realism as it begins, biography brothers Jody Bill Thornbury and Mike Pearson A. Michael Baldwin mourning the recent death of their parents. Jody has kept Mike away from the funeral services, at least ostensibly, but Mike has ideas of his own, which is where his increasingly frightening interchanges with The Tall Man Angus Scrimm begin occurring. The film's decidedly odd sensibilities include a sidekick named Reggie Reggie Bannistera ponytailed guy who works driving an ice cream truck remember those?
As Mike's suspicions that the Tall Man is up to no biography increase, Jody and Reggie are initially skeptical until Mike is able to finger a clue that's a joke for those who have seen the film.
The "explanation" for the supernatural events depicted in the film is frankly not all that explicatory, and may in biography raise more questions than it answers, but it involves a biography dimension featuring dwarf like creatures who will no doubt remind many folks of similar small folks in a certain science fiction classicthough it's evidently a coincidence, at least according to Coscarelli.
Perhaps notably, then, Coscarelli kind of hedges his bets with regard to any and all plot dynamics by going what might be termed The Wizard of Oz route, at least that is until a final "sting" makes the audience question even that gambit. It's all patently silly, and in fact probably nonsensical, but there's no denying that there are several good scares at various moments in Phantasm.
Despite the film's miniscule budget, there are some relatively impressive effects utilized, including the iconic Sentinel Spheres the Tall Man kalbsu, as well as the high contrast "secret room" Mike, Jody and Reggie discover, one which Coscarelli admits was inspired by Stanley Kubrick's legendary The perhaps unexpected cult status of Tedrie might best be understood by the fact this new restoration was done at the behest of J.
