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.

On par with Hellraiser for atmosphere and originality.. You know what happened after this movie? The 80s man
It was okay
this is nonsense
A great mind bender!
I saw this when it first came out. I was in junior high, and it scared the hell out of me. This is the first time I've seen it since, and it has really held up pretty well. It's not as scary as it used to be, but I really dig the story
