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

9 years, 5 months ago at Mar 3 1:38
"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.

"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! "

"9.12, PC Ajatus jostain toismaailmallisesta haudanryöstäjästä ja tämän huppupäisistä kääpiökätyreistä on kiinnostava, mutta elokuva itsessään ei-viihdyttävällä-tavalla kökkö."

2017: The Movie List (62 movies items)

"En nykyään katso kovinkaan montaa elokuvaa vuodessa ja suurin osa niistäkin on nimimerkki Kurkkuharjan luona. Tällä kertaa luvassa oli Phantasm-sarjan neljä elokuvaa eikä tämä ensimmäinen itse asiassa ollut hullumpi. Kökkö tuotanto ja kehno näytteleminen - toki kummatkin budjetin takia juuri näin - eivät haittaa pahemmin, koska tämän kanssa viihtyy. Elokuva on sopivan pituinen kaiken lisäksi. Kyllä niitä huonompiakin tapoja aloittaa elokuvasarja voi olla."

" An excellent surreal horror science-fiction film that almost feel like someone has made it in a fever dream close to death. It is pretty unique and could almost have passed as a mainstream hit had it not been because of it's bloody effects where spheres drill themselves through the heads of victims and a cemetery sex scene. The excellent Angus Scrimm is hugely memorable in an almost non-speaking role as Death looking like an Undertaker and there is a portal to another dimension. The teenage kid"

"4.11. (DVD) Hyvää pyhäinmiesten päivää eli kekriä! Hautausmailla vaeltelu jäi tänä vuonna väliin, mutta onneksi sen sijaan tuli pidettyä Phantasm-maratoni. Tässä ekassa oli hyvät musat ja mukavan kämäisiä tehosteita. Jotkut tontut riehuu ja yhdessä kohtaa tuntui käyvän hirveästi kaikkea. En kieltämättä enää oikein muista, mikä näistä osista oli mikäkin. Vanhempani olivat järkyttyneitä, kun kerroin katsovamme neliosaisen sarjan elokuvia, jotka kertovat ihmisiä m"

" Familiar Actors: A. Michael Baldwin Bill Thornbury Reggie Bannister Kathy Lester and Angus Scrimm True Rating: 6/10 This is the first of a series that Don Coscarelli started writing and directing. The one that pulled in a cult following and made it so I had to see what the fuss was all about. I thought it was pretty decent. It wasn't greatness like I was expecting it to be, but I could see why it's a cult classic. It had some cool ideas and moments. Also I loved the ending. The acting is pr"
