Reggie teams up with a boy and a young woman to rescue Mike from the Tall Man in the third entry in the PHANTASM series.

Two years later, a vision of the Tall Man and Mike’s dead brother Jody signals that the nightmare is beginning again. When the Tall Man kidnaps Mike and turns the dead Jody into a sphere, Reggie decides it’s time to get the alien mortician for good. But the Tall Man has some terrifying new tricks up his sleeve - and lots and lots of spheres…

Cast: Angus Scrimm, A. Michael Baldwin, Reggie Bannister
A lot more camp than the first two but not too bad. Nice to have a bit of a backstory too
Fun flick. A not bad episode in the franchise that 'never ends'. The Tall Man is a personal favorite horror icon. Here there are some great moments that reveal more of his secrets. Part III's are always tricky. They played a good game in this one.
This is where the series starts going downhill.
With the return of A. Michael Baldwin and a slew of new and interesting characters, this entry in the phantasm franchise will leave you wanting more!
