Legendary genre filmmaker, Don Coscarelli, is unleashing the souls of the damned again, as his legendary horror series, ‘Phantasm,’ is now available On Demand and Digital HD. An all-new 4K restoration of the franchise’s original 1979 cult classic, ‘Phantasm: Remastered,’ as well as this year’s ‘Phantasm: Ravager,’ the fifth and final movie in the series, are also set to be released in theaters this Friday.
‘Phantasm: Remastered’ was written, directed and edited by Coscarelli, who also worked as the cinematographer on the sci-fi film. The franchise’s initial movie, which is also available on iTunes, stars Angus Scrimm, Reggie Bannister and A. Michael Baldwin. The original classic that started it all follows two brothers discover their local mortuary hides a legion of hooded killer dwarfs, a flying drill-ball and the demonic mortician who enslaves the souls of the damned.
‘Phantasm: Ravager’ was written by Coscarelli and David Hartman, who also directed the horror follow-up. The fantasy film was produced by Coscarelli and executive produced by Brad Baruh. The last installment of the cult franchise also stars Scrimm, Bannister and A. Michael Baldwin.
Now also available on iTunes, ‘Phantasm: Ravager’ is an all-new movie that brings one of cinema’s longest-running series without a reboot to a close. The fourth sequel follows Mike (Baldwin) and Reggie (Banister) as they team up to confront the dimension-hopping Tall Man (Scrimm, in his final role) once and for all.
