Phantasm: Ravager

After nearly 20 years dormant the Phantasm series was resurrected for one last time. Filmed shortly before Angus Scrimm's death, his Tall Man has one last hurrah with his spheres and dwarfs going against the freedom fighters Reggie and Mike. Yet this Phantasm returns to the original where you're left questioning what you saw.

Phantasm: OblIVion

The fourth Phantasm film was shaping up to be major. Written by Pulp Fiction Academy Award Winning writer Roger Avary, the film would be a post-apocalyptic action film starring Bruce Campbell!  But...that's not the film that was made. Unable to find the money for that film, Don Coscarelli and company made a film that didn't go to the future, but instead to the past. Is this The Tall Man's Oblivion? Donate to Now Playing and hear all about the film that was made, and the film that wasn't!

After Phantasm II the series' theatrical releases came to an end, but that didn't stop The Tall Man's plot. Here in the third Phantasm the cast has grown, the gore is more graphic, and original star A. Michael Baldwin is back. Is the third time the charm for this sci-fi horror series?

Phantasm II

Nine years had passed since Mike's first dream of The Tall Man in 1979's Phantasm. Now, thanks to the seemingly endless appetite of fans for horror franchises, "the ball is back"--with a 10x bigger budget! Under Universal Pictures there was more money, and a new actor as Mike. Does this ball shine greater than the original? Thanks to your donation to Now Playing Podcast you can join Arnie, Stuart, and Jakob to find out!

Phantasm

Phantasm was a horror hit in 1979, standing out among a slew of Halloween horror trend followers. But Phantasm's success belied its indie production, shot on weekends for a meager $300,000 budget. The film's legacy endures nearly 40 years later with a fifth film recently released. Does this first movie have the balls to still work decades after its release?
