Don Coscarelli’s PHANTASM 1-5 Limited Edition Releases April 24! Just Four More Days!

Few horror movie franchises are as iconic as Don Coscarelli’s PHANTASM series.

Thanks to Don Coscarelli, this series had everything from its deadly flying silver spheres through to its hooded dwarf minions, and of course, the towering figure of arch villain ‘The Tall Man’ himself, the imagery conjured up by the PHANTASM films remains etched in the psyche of genre fans everywhere thanks to Don Coscarelli.

Beginning with the 1979 original through to 2016’s PHANTASM:RAVANGER, the five films which make up the PHANTASM series follow the young Mike Baldwin as he battles against the enigmatic “Tall Man” – an extraterrestrial being intent on harvesting the human race as slaves for his home planet. Aided by friend Reggie and his trusty four-barrelled shotgun, Mike resolves to vanquish the Tall Man before he wipes out humanity altogether.

Brought together for the first time on Blu-ray – including a stunning new 4K restoration of the original PHANTASM overseen by J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Star Trek Into Darkness) – the PHANTASM series is back with added balls.
