Phantasm: Remastered

Phantasm: Remastered

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.

Don Coscarelli’s beloved 1979 sci-fi horror classic returns in a new restoration.

Cast: Angus Scrimm, A. Michael Baldwin, Reggie Bannister

Very atmospheric and dark. Which is what I love in a horror movie. The music gives it a great touch. I remember seeing the coverbox in the video store when I was a kid. It looked kind of cheesy. Coscarelli does a great job selling it on such a small budget, but goes to show you that you don't need much to make quality horror. As long as you stick to the basics of what makes horror good: Being shocked or being frightened and for the time it was made this movie does a little of both.
