Phantasm IV: Oblivion
Directed by Don Coscarelli
Reggie, Mike, Jody and The Tall Man are drawn to Death Valley for a final showdown in the penultimate PHANTASM film. After Reggie and Mike get separated, sphere-ified Jody helps Reggie search for Mike, who’s gearing up to decimate the evil alien once and for all. But as the Tall Man’s unholy harvest reaches its crescendo, Mike realizes he must make a dangerous journey across portals of time and the dimensions of the undead if he wants to succeed. A very trippy (almost) finale to the one-of-a-kind horror series, featuring unseen outtakes from the original PHANTASM.

Good use of deleted scenes and also good back story. Really felt like a good film to watch
Enjoyed this episode in the Phantasm series as we get to know The Tall Man a bit more. The settings are clever with the connections made to the original film in 1979 quite jolting in a good way. What always made Phantasm stand out for me was the fantastic elements of interdimensional travel mixed with the horror. I love how the roman numerals in each title figure into the actual wording of the title. It's all part of The Tall Man's game! Worth a watch, especially if you love this series.
Not the strongest entry in the franchise, but has plenty of new ideas to keep you entertained!
