Editorial Reviews

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.

    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.

    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 familiar, 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).

    Update: October 2015. Phantasm: Ravager will be completed sometime in 2016.

    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!!!!

    When I was younger I saw Phantasm one night on T.V. when I was flipping channels. You know, one of those nights when it's late, it's the weekend, you feel good, and you're all alone and all you want is to see a movie that makes an impact on your life somehow. Phantasm IS one of those movies. It is, to me, the impidimy of what a horror movie should be. Graveyards, darkness, fog, monsters, evil powers, zombies that are actually scary, and a sweet 1971 Hemi-Cuda. The "ball" is the most revolutionary idea to come to horror movies. I was so excited after seeieng it I went to the video store and to my sheer pleasure, there was part 1,2, and 3. Each one takes up from where the last one ended. I absolutely LOVE the Phantasm series more than any other series.

    I feel as if the series was taylor made for me. It touches a primal fear in me that is both scary and exhilerating. The Tall Man is so cool !! The flying ball(s) and the sound they make is Phantastic !!

    I couldn't care less who owns the copywrite to the series. Yes, I adore Mike and would've loved to see him in part 2, but, dammit, I want the BOX SET !!!!!!!! I know I speak for other fans.

    Quite simply, the Phantasm series holds a very special place in my heart. It is what movie making should be.

    Don, if you are reading this, thank you so much for bringing joy into my life. I'm sure you aware by now that you have quite a cult following !!

    I have been a huge PHANTASM fan ever since I saw the original in the theater back in '79. I loved it so much, that frankly it took me awhile to get around to seeing this first sequel, released about 9 years later. I guess I've had a lot of disappointment with sequels over the years. When I finally did see it on VHS maybe a year or two after its release, I was a bit let down. They had a different actor playing Mike, and the overall feeling just wasn't the same.

    That being said, I've come to appreciate this film more and more with each viewing. Sure, it's got a different feel to it. At times it plays more like a full-bore action movie. But the way it unfolds is essential to the storyline of the entire series, and does a great job setting up the two subsequent sequels. For me at least, after repeated viewings, it became increasingly evident that it really is an absolutely perfect sequel to the first film. I even came to truly enjoy and appreciate James LeGros' portrayal of Mike. Reggie Bannister is great, as he is in everything he does. And I don't need to say anymore than has already been said at length over the years about Angus Scrimm as the Tall Man. Pure sinister evil.

    When my VHS copy finally wore out, I had to content myself with a VHS television copy (probably even edited - I don't remember). Then one day a couple of years ago, I found out about the Anchor Bay Region 2 Silver Sphere edition with all four films on DVD, and I jumped on that, even though I had numbers 1, 3, and 4 already on Region 1.

    Needless to say, I will pre-order this as soon as I finish writing this review (I'm shocked I didn't pre-order it first). If ONLY there would someday be a PHANTASM V, but that possibility becomes more remote with each year that passes.
