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.

One of the defining moments of my young teenage yrs, can thoughly relate to the Michael character because of the closeness in age an seeing it in a large scale theater!
One of my childhood favorites. (I and II are definitely the best of the series.) The remastered version looks great.
This movie has always been and will be one of my favorites! Scary in a weird way.
I had heard of this movie for years. Now that I’ve seen it, I don’t know why it’s a cult classic. The Mike actor is very good, though!
Phantasm is one of those lightning-in-a-bottle flicks that could never be duplicated. It's bonkers in a wonderful way.
