Synopsis


Phantasm II
The "Tall Man" and his strange little Killer Sphere return for a second round in this sequel to the 1979 cult favorite. Mike Pearson (James LeGros) is still plagued by memories of the Tall Man (Angus Scrimm), an evil mortician who has risen from the grave and bleeds embalming fluid -- and tried to kill him as a boy. Mike has been a patient in a mental institution for the last decade, insisting that the Tall Man is real; he still appears in his dreams ten years after their first encounter. When Mike changes his tune and says that the undead undertaker was merely a hallucination, he is finally released. However, Mike and his best friend, Reggie (Reggie Bannister), are actually out to find the Tall Man and put an end to his habits of grave-robbing and draining people's bodies with his flying brain-juicer. As they search for the Tall Man, Mike encounters Liz (Paula Irvine), a woman who has also appeared in his dreams, and she claims that she too has been pursued by the Tall Man. Phantasm II was followed by a third installment in 1994, and a fourth in 1998. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Excellent Blu-Ray a Must for Fans

    Phantasm II is one of those movies you have to be a fan of to really enjoy. So the movie's quality is subjective. You do NOT have to be a fan to enjoy the disc. The picture has been restored to a high-def finish (it's 25+ years old, so the image isn't as sharp as modern films) and the image is clean and devoid of any serious DNR. But while the picture and audio are representative of everything right and true with Blu-Ray, this disc was designed for fanboys like me and serves as a great example of Shout! Factory's dedication to quality collector's editions. There's a 50-minute HD retrospective documentary as well as a collection of older archival material, deleted scenes (many of which are in very good condition having come from the director's personal stash) and also an old educational film from the 50s starring the film's villain as a young Abe Lincoln. And my personal favorite tidibt is that the cover is reversible: flip it over and you have the original poster art to slide in the sleeve! If you like the film, it's definitely worth the buy, even at $20 or so.

    This is clearly the definitive version of Phantasm II ever released. The blu-ray is definitely an upgrade over the last DVD released, however the picture quality could have been a little bit sharper. I'm sure Shout Factory did the best with whatever source material they had. The film is a favorite among many fans of the franchise and is so bizarre and different than most horror films. Some say that Phantasm is an acquired taste, but those who acquire it absolutely adore it. The list of bonus content is where this release truly shines....it is jam-packed with hours to occupy the die-hards. Also, much kudos on the reversible cover with original key art! A must-own for HorrorHounds out there!

    I like everything scream factory releases and this is a highlight for me considering how much I like this series. I grabbed it before it sells out, which it probably will once jj abrhams finishes the remaster of the first phantasm that is getting a blu ray release sometime this year. Id been holding out for a box set of them but I dont think that will happen.

    Phantasm 2 is a great sequel to the classic Phantasm. The movie has the same great charm as the original but exhibits more action elements into the formula. The presentation put forth by Scream Factory is top notch. Loads of special features, reversible coverart, and great picture and audio quality. Pick this one up.

    Love this film. It's a great follow up to the surreal Phantasm. This film however is more mainstream and straight forward while at the same time being very trippy and dreamlike. Unauthorized duplication, distribution, or exhibition may result in civil liability, criminal prosecutions, and THE WRATH OF THE TALL MAN.

    After getting the Blu-Ray of Phantasm re-mastered to set out to get the follow up movie. Phantasm 2 is hard to find but Best Buy had it at a good price and free shipping. A few of the cast are missing from the first movie but its a good follow up to the story. Beware the Tall Man!

    Nothing will ever touch the first Phantasm but this is a decent sequel with the return of Angus Scrimm as the Tall Man and Reggie Bannister in his original role. Mike however is played by a different actor and big brother Jody is just a memory in this installment !!
