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.

I love how WEIRD this movie is!
Score was phenomenal and I liked the brotherly relationship, however, the story was convoluted and also it wasn't as thrilling as I'd hope. I liked the effects and the mystery as well as how quickly you get into the action of things. A very run of the mill movie.
Surreal sci-fi/horror with twists.
one of the best horror classics ever! Early horror had the best music
I remember watching this when I was younger (I'm now 50) and thought it really creepy. I finished watching just now and actually laughed a lot. I don't think it was scary at all, not even creepy. Funny how the mind changes with age. Still a decent movie, though.
