Directed by Don Coscarelli
Don Coscarelli’s beloved 1979 sci-fi horror classic returns in a beautiful new restoration (headed by J.J. Abrams and Bad Robot). When Mike’s parents die, his world is turned upside down. But nothing can prepare him for the shocking discovery that a mortician (the late, great Angus Scrimm) and his dwarf army have stolen Mike’s parents’ bodies. Did we mention the flying spheres? Though the surreal scare-fest unfolds like a child’s bad dream, the terror it evokes is far more real and intense than most fright flicks. PHANTASM’s success led to four sequels and a permanent place in the horror hall of fame.

The film looks great, and the soundtrack is as atmospheric as ever. The movie doesn't really have much of a plot, but it's creepy enough to watch once.
A creepy classic
Some spooky surreal imagery. I don't think it's great, but it's worth a watch.
Yep! Still as odd as I remember.
What the hell did I just watch? I was mostly confused and pretty bored... I had high expectations for this one as I've seen it regarded as a classic, but I found this to be silly and quite confusing. The silver ball of death thing was cool though, I guess.
