Reviews:

PHANTASM is an uneven work, too fantastic to be genuinely scary but ferociously unique and fascinating on numerous levels.

I think at the forefront there was a desire here to create a warped and entirely original Universe where nothing is as it seems and anything can – and probably will – happen. Logic is quickly cast aside and indeed has no place in the crooked landscape that PHANTASM paints. Into this bizarre, surreal…….even Dali-like twisted cosmos, are thrust a group of characters who – perhaps even by virtue of their acting inadequacies – seem somehow as much a part of the fabric of that Universe, even in their struggles to survive and make sense of it.

For me, PHANTASM has a hypnotic effect for all those reasons. Flying sphere drills, a gender bending alien cemetery keeper, hooded shrunken corpses refined for slave labour in some parallel Universe, a severed finger that morphs into a grotesque (if admittedly comical) fly and countless other wild fantasies are all episodic nightmares that work their way into my head and stay there – however well or not they may be executed. They are indeed, the essence of all the darkest, unfathomable episodes that invade our deepest sleep.

Also, the film’s tendency to bounce us in and out of reality – if indeed there is a reality present at all – without warning, keeps us permanently on unstable ground. Dreams are very prominent and indeed prevalent in PHANTASM. So much so, that by the end there seems no dividing line between that which was real and which was not. In this sense, the film explored the territory that NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET would later make it’s own but somehow achieves a dream-like quality that even Craven’s classic would not surpass. Only Dario Argento’s similarly bizarre INFERNO comes to mind as a rival to PHANTASM for the closest we might get to a dream realised on film.

PHANTASM is a unique, mind bending vision of quaint, small town America, infused with hellish fantasies of death, loss and isolation, unleashed from the subconscious mind – perhaps even in the end, from that of it’s young, insecure and lonely adolescent protagonist.

Poe said “Is all that we see or seem, but a dream within a dream?”

PHANTASM presents a case.

I urge those who are not impressed, to watch it again with these notions in mind.

There are tall men, and then there’s the “Tall Man”. I actually saw the trailer, or preview, if you like, for Phantasm while awaiting the start of Invasion of the Body Snatchers in December of 1978. And I remember the trailer quite well, considering that the upcoming film looked scary as the word itself. The part in the trailer that really got to me was the scene in which the main antagonist, the Tall Man, played by Angus Scrimm, is standing outside of some kid’s bedroom window (at night) looking in over the kid’s head. It freaked me out … Completely out. And being a horror film buff – even then at such a young age – I’d immediately said to my mother who had been sitting next to me: ‘Ooh, ma, I wanna see that movie!’ Phantasm looked horrifying … And I loved horrifying movies. My mother said ‘Yes’.

It would be the next year, in April of 1979, that we (only my mother and me that time) would finally see Phantasm. And it’s scary as hell, I tell ya. Scary as hell. Oh, and as I’d also learned, the kid, whose window it was that the Tall Man stood outside of in the trailer, is named Mike. Scary as hell, I tell ya.

Be prepared, if you’ll be a first time watcher of this cult horror, to scream and jump and feel chills as you’re absorbing it. It is just that creepy. And I do believe that Clive Barker (God love him) would later borrow more than a few of the elements from Phantasm for his own cult masterpiece, “Hellraiser”. I reckon that I’ll always believe that to be the truth. Phantasm is sheer and ultimate terror. They just don’t make ’em like this anymore.

Watch this one with the lights on, folks.

This gives new meaning to the word “BOOOYYY!”
In 1980, Magnetic Video released the full length 90-minutes long version on video, with a difused glow throughout the entire film. In the latter part of the 1980s, the film was issued again on video, but one sequence (which takes place in near complete darkness in The Tall Man’s glowing white room) was accidentally edited out by the people supervising the film to video transfer. This version of the film ran 87/ 88 minutes in length. When Phantasm was issued on DVD in the late 1990s the scene was restored, but the colour balance and the soft diffusion was corrected, which I think robbed the film of some of its atmospheric effect. My review is based on Magnetic Video’s 1980 release.

This haunting, dreamlike hallucination of a movie was written, directed, photographed, produced and edited by Don Coscarelli, it doesn’t make much sense but it’s still a great bit of fun to watch with the lights turned out. This kid named Mike convinces his older brother Jody that there is something weird going on at the local cemetery. So he and Jody break into the old mausoleum and find out that it’s actually some kind of factory where people are killed by a flying metal ball, crushed down to a height of about 3’2″, dressed up like little monks and packaged up into round metal garbage cans and shipped off for use as slave labour in some other dimension. A dimension ruled and resided over by the six and a half foot tall mortician (known throughout the entire ordeal as just simply “The Tall Man”) working at this cemetery. When The Tall Man kills another friend of theirs, they decide to put and end to him, or at least try to.

This movie has many different layered meanings, over the years some people have said that it’s a reference to corporate America coming in (in the form of The Tall Man) and killing off everyone (by turning everything into a ‘business’) and some have said that this movie is also about a kid’s loss of innocence and fears about everyone around him leaving (or in this case dying) Whatever the hell this movie is about, it’s still great fun, followed by a couple of really disappointing (and belated) sequels.

What Did I Just Watch?
Phantasm n.:

1. Something apparently seen but having no physical reality; a phantom

2. An illusory mental image

(American Heritage Dictionary)

My copy is quite old but I figured I’d use this post as an educational opportunity. It may give some insight to the meaning of the movie. Then again, it may not.

The movie takes place In this sparsely populated town where it seems only this boy, his brother, and his brother’s friend exist. The young boy Mike (A. Michael Baldwin) saw something strange at the cemetery and the cemetery becomes a rendezvous point from then on. It’s used for sex and sleuthing mostly and yes that’s weird.

This clearly low-budget movie failed to move the meter for me. Somehow, they took a very nebulous and obscure premise and made it into a movie with sequels. Besides the movie seeming rushed there were no explanations for anything. Maybe the entire movie was a phantasm?
