Sadly, the movie too late in the game starts opening up more questions to the older questions it was starting to sort out. Also, the few scenes with Angus Scrimm as the Tall Man are bittersweet. The Tall Man really is not in the movie that much and it could have been due to Scrimm's health at the time but he definitely relishes his moments on screen. My favorite part is when Reggie wakes up in a civil war era hospital right next to Jebidia Morningside. Reggie is a bit confused at this kindly old man with a very familiar face and just as Reggie is about to relax the Tall Man uses that chilling voice and tells him he has always been watching. This is a decent effort for a Phantasm movie, I know it is the end but my final thoughts are that I wish they would have been done a better job wrapping things up as the movie seemed to have several different endings and kept piling on new story elements.
Spoilers: What I thought was really disappointing was when ever the Tall Man is injured or dismembered his limbs or wounds spawn creatures, that never happens in this movie. He really doesn't do anything at all in this movie, he just stands around menacingly.
In the 4th movie they show the original Tall Man entering the portal and emerging from it, turned evil. The 4th also reveals that Jodie has a gold sphere in his head and has some kind of connection to the Tall Man. None of that is answered in this movie. Most of all Tall Man's motivation for doing what he's doing. He keeps telling the main characters to stop meddling in his affairs but he never says why he needs to destroy worlds and turn people into zombie dwarfs. What's his end game in all this? This movie was really frustrating, it started out good enough but the last half is really disappointing.
Not sure who I'd recommend this movie too, super hardcore fans maybe. This was either a quick cash grab or some poor attempt to start up another series of films. It just feels like they wasted a lot of good material from the original films.
To prepare myself for this finale (?) film, I watched the previous 4 to refresh my memory. While the first one is the cult classic, and none come close to the mystery in that one, the others, and this one, are nonetheless a great romp with shotgun blasts, guts and blood, and stuff so weird -
Only, what I found was more confusion, half-answers, and no resolution to the story. The movie lacked the continuity of its predecessors, had a "love-story" that was cut short before even getting started, and was way more confusing than any previous one. It had moments, and maybe it'll grow on me, but there was just a lot of wasted potential. A lot of plots started that just didn't take off.
One of the dissapointments was that it referenced, but never explained, the biggest mystery from the beginning of the series: how was Reggie stabbed in the chest by the girl in the purple dress, and then alive again later, with no apparent memory of the event?
