      I am a Phantasm super fan, have been lucky enough to meet Reggie Bannister, Angus Scrimm, and Don Coscarelli on a few different occasions. All very professional, kind and courteous actors/director. It was so good to see all the beloved characters of the franchise that started 37 years ago. Once again Reggie is back looking for Mike after the events of Phantasm IV Oblivion..Reggie goes through time, jumps forward, back, from side to side and everywhere in between, some scenes he is younger, some older, some in the present moment. All the characters return with even Rocky from Part III which was a nice surprise at the end of the film. Reggie spends his time looking, questioning, asking, smooth talking girls, playing guitar, singing, shooting, getting chased by spheres small and SUPER LARGE in basically the future which has become the Land of the Tall Man. Thankfully a group of resistance fighters rescue Reggie before its too late, one of them being Mike. The movie leaves the viewer with the thoughts of the franchise finally ending, as the group of friends is reunited after a lifelong battle with The Tall Man, his dwarfs, his spheres, the lady in lavender, and everyone possessed by evil...you decide..or maybe half the movie was a dream with certain parts of reality being true and others being part of Reggie's mind in flux...

      A surreal trip for fans only.

      This movie is surreal and very much open for interpretation. I think a lot was compromised with the real life death of the main antagonist's actor as well as the low budget. I think they did the best with what they had. There are no clear cut answers for something that's supposed to end the series at the same time I think that keeps the spirit of the first film's surreal tone and ending. I didn't like this at first but, after thinking about it I can appreciate it more as a surreal peace. This has a lot of nods only fans will appreciate and this is who this film was made for. This film is a labor of love and I'm sure all the people who were in this believed in what they were doing. If your new to the series start with the first but, if your a long time fan this is probably a must. Due to the low budget this looks very much like a fan film shot with a cheap low budget digital camera. At the same time the image is clean and the characters are lovable where you forget about the aesthetics. Fans only until you watch the first four as this is not a stand alone story.

      Disappointing wink to the fans

      For a finale I though this was a disappointment. To me they appeared to be playing to the fans more than completing a story. They did something similar in Rogue One with a lot of winks to the original which I just found distracting. And most of all, enough with the freaking CGI. Too much CGI just takes me out of a movie. The same with excess cursing. I'm not even going to go on. For a Phantasm fan, you should probably watch this film just to have the story line, but to everyone else, I'd recommend avoiding it.

      The end of an era...

      This was directed by a guy from Disney who does kids' movies, and it shows. I was disappointed in the overall weakness of the film, from script and effects to the weak ending. With all the stars returning for the final effort, it's too bad Coscarelli and company couldn't find a budget appropriate to the franchise's iconic status. Worth seeing because it's Phantasm, but if not for nostalgia I'd recommend passing on this one. Three stars because...'Cuda, I guess. Recommended for fans only.

      Not going to ruin the end of the journey. If you're reading this, you're already a fan so what are you wating for? Reggie is still trying to tie up all the loose ends created in the previous 4 films. Released directly to disc wtihout theater or fanfare, you're needing this to complete your collection and find out if Reggie is successful in finishing off the Tall Man. Sadly, Angus Scrimm has passed so there will be no more films in this series - so get to the store.

      Don't expect to have every single question answered in fact this leaves the door open. I'm not sure how they could follow this up with Angus Scrimm's passing. This was a much more satisfying sequel than part 4. It's obvious thought that this started out as a web series because it feels almost episodic in places. All in all, it plays out well and gives some closure to the characters we have spent time with for over 35 years.

      This movie is as good as I expected. I have mixed feelings about this franchise, but it was a good addition and continued the story of the characters we all know. I liked it, but I didn't love it. If you're a fan of the series, you will like this. If you're not, I don't know why you would be reading this. Some of the best effects in the series this time around.

      It was an okay installment to the Phantasm series. I enjoyed it here and there but came away only partially satisfied. Oh well. I was sad to hear that Angus Scrimm had passed away. I'm a big fan of the first film, saw it when I was a kid. If this is the last Phantasm film than it is fitting, because it wouldn't be a Phantasm film without the "Tall Man".
