As Quoted By Arrow In the Head...7/10

"Phantasm is a must see for any serious genre fan. No it’s not a perfect flick but you have to admire its creativity, originality and…well…its balls. It looks slick, moves fast and kind of has the same feel as the first "Nightmare On Elm Street", dark and mean. Even in death you’re not safe when the Tall Man’s around…."-as quoted by arrow in the head.

“You play a good game, boy! But the game is finished. Now you die!”

These are the words of Angus Scrimm.
An underrated actor who deserved to be more appreciated because of his role of the demonic, sadistic and malicious Tall Man, who is one of my favorite villains in all of fiction. This movie may be confusing but the acting, scares, Story, kills, effects and soundtrack are ... read more

““You play a good game, boy! But the game is finished. Now you die!”

An underrated actor who deserved to be more appreciated because of his role of the demonic, sadistic and malicious Tall Man, who is one of my favorite villains in all of fiction. This movie may be confusing but the acting, scares, Story, kills, effects and soundtrack are memorably great and well executed.

My Childhood Favorite Movies (20 movies items)

"I felt like I was the only fan of this movie when I was a kid. Nobody had heard of it and those that had didn't love it like I did. It was special to me and I longed to live with the characters in it. Full of unique imagery and ideas, Phantasm still managed to be a fun coming of age story about a kid in suburbia. As I grew the rest of the movies in the series grew with me and I hold them as near and dear to my heart as I did the first one. "

" Date: 3/30/2019 Viewed: Blu-Ray Rewatch Note: I decided to rewatch Phantasm for the 40th anniversary and the movie is still awesome. The disquieting atmosphere in this movie is top notch and it really helps make this movie feel scary. Tall Man is a great horror movie villain for how creepy and mysterious that he is. The acting in the movie is not that bad as well. I highly recommend this movie! "
