    The Tall Man is back with a vengeance in Phantasm II, the second chapter in the cult classic Phantasm series! Released after seven years in a mental hospital, Mike convinces his old pal Reggie to join forces with him to hunt down and destroy The Tall Man once and for all. Mike’s visions lead the two to a quiet little town where a horde of flying killer balls aim to slice and dice their gruesome way through each of them. Exploding with special effects, unparalleled thrills, horror and suspense, Phantasm II climaxes with a blood-curdling conclusion that you have to see to believe.

    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    The long and outrageous wait is over and we FINALLY have PHANTASM II on DVD in region one. Universal knew that fans were in a frenzy to get this one and they also knew they didn't have to bother doing anything more than a bare bones release. Fans would buy whatever version they decided to throw our way and they did the LEAST amount of work on this they could get by with. What we got was a good looking anamorphic print of the film and an unimpressive STEREO soundtrack. Thats right, only 2 channel sound (even though the other films in this series all got new Dolby 5.1 remixes Universal knew they didn't have to bother). There are NO EXTRAS on this disc (other than one faded and dirty copy of the trailer). No cool animated menus, no commentary track, deleted scenes, making of features, retrospective documentary, cast interviews, NOTHING. All of this material is available and is on the worldwide releases of this film but the North American market gets ripped off by Universal. It would be so nice if they would allow Anchor Bay to do a decent release of this remarkable film but sadly it looks like that will never be a reality for the region 1 poplulation. Still...we do at least now have the film on DVD and the anamorphic transfer looks far better than my old pan and scan VHS copy. Even my laserdisc copy was pan and scan so this is a nice improvment. I sort of like the new cover art for this release as well although Unviersal even went super cheap on the flimsy, light weight keepcase this came in. They really should be ashamed of themselves for holding the film hostage all these years and then giving us such a no frills version when they finally decided to release it. Its a great film and an impressive follow up to the original film and it deserved so much better than this.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Reggie Bannister & Angus Scrimm are back. September 15, 2003
    Format:VHS Tape
    This second Phantasm begins where the first film, PHANTASM (1979), left off and takes you seven years later. In real time it was nine years before they finally made this sequel. That is why everyone looks more mature. James Le Gros takes over as "Michael" for this film only. But A. Michael Baldwin can be seen in flashbacks. Reggie Bannister and the Tall Man Angus Scrimm are back and so are those deadly silver spheres. I'll keep the plot a surprise for you, but this sequel is more big-budget. They go all out for this one and is very enjoyable if you like suspense, horror and more gore.

    Funny sex scene.
    If James Le Gros looks familar, twelve years later after this film, he had a regular role in the tv series "Ally McBeal" in 2000-2001.

    Followed by:
    Phantasm III: Lord of the Dead(1994).
    Phantasm IV: Oblivion (1998).

    5.0 out of 5 stars MORE PHANTASM PLEASE ON BLU-RAY!!!!!!! March 5, 2013
    I wonder why they decided to release PHANTASM II on blu-ray / DVD before the first movie PHANTASM?

    Let's hope we can get the rest of this series with GREAT PICTURE QUALITY on Blu-ray soon...PLEASE!!!!

    5.0 out of 5 stars SEQUEL WITH BALLS November 29, 2005
    Don Coscarelli demonstrated his talent in first "Phantasm" and now he was granted a bigger budget by Universal Pictures. And extra money appeared to be quite useful. We got the same grim and atmosperic movie but with better special effects and more advanced technically. Money allowed to build beautiful and extended interiors, make the picture spellbinding, increase the number of killing spheres and expand the cast - therefore we got to see wonderful actors here like James LeGros as Mike and Kenneth Tigar as a charismatic priest.
    And although "Phantasm II" has a bigger calibre than the previous one it is still very atmospheric and claustrophobic. If the first was more of a little mystic film, the second grew up to be an action horror road-movie. And it served him good. As Don Coscarelli mentioned in his commentary track, you may like this film or not, but you will not deny the fact it's a film of great imagery. It is picturesque indeed. There are plenty scenes you can get pleasure watching, even if you had watched them separately, not in chronological order, not knowing the plot. "Phantasm II" is just beautiful. And it's not that slowly-paced as other "Phantasm" series, it's much more active and intense.
    This film of great imagination is one of my all-time favourites. I just bought the British 5-disc sphere edition. Guess soon it'll be released in America too.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A VERY CHILLING AND POWERFUL SEQUEL August 10, 2000
    By MAS
    Format:VHS Tape
    Phantasm II (1988)
    Phantasm II is the sequel to the 1979 horror classic,Phantasm. If you ask me,it's just as good as Phantasm,if not better.
    The story is simple.Michael Pearson (James LeGros) talks his doctors into freeing him from a mental hospital.Michael has been in a mental hospital for quite some time,due to his crazy story about the events from Phantasm (the hooded midget monks, flying spheres,etc).Michael convinces them that those were just leftover nightmares.
    The doctors foolishly believe Michael and let hime free.He contacts his long-time friend Reggie (Reggie Bannister) into stopping the sinister mortician known as "The Tall Man" (Angus Scrimm)."The Tall Man" is a very tall mortician who is strong enough to lift up a casket and multiple people.He targets a beautiful young girl named Liz (Paula Irvine),who Michael & Reggie intend to rescue then destroy "The Tall Man".
    This time their not un-prepared.Michael & Reggie break into an abandoned hardware store and take some powerful weapons in the process.Makeshift flamethrowers,quadrulple-barreled shotguns, chainsaws,power drills,and various other weapons are used as Michael & Reggie hunt down "The Tall Man".
    The special effects are excellent (the finale is very cool), the story great,the acting wonderful (Angus Scrimm is brilliant as "The Tall Man"),and the film a thrill ride from start to finish.Phantasm II is in my opinion the best of the entire Phantasm series.I would highly suggest you buy it now.It's one of the most entertaining,engrossing,scariest movies your bound to see.An underrated classic (besides it's predecessor).
