Product Description

If You Don’t Get It This Time, He’ll Have To Drill It Into Your Head! The mutant dwarf creatures are attacking, the silver spheres are flying, and The Tall Man is back with a vengeance! Fifteen years after the original horror classic, writer/producer/director Don Coscarelli reunites brothers Mike (A. Michael Baldwin) and Jody (Bill Thornbury) to help their friend Reggie (Reggie Bannister) destroy The Tall Man (Angus Scrimm) once and for all. Is the ultimate force of evil any match for a bald, former ice cream vendor with a ‘70 Hemicuda and a four-barrel shotgun? Cindy Ambuehl (JAG) co-stars in this insane sequel packed with sex, violence and gore galore that takes the PHANTASM series to a whole new dimension! Features: Widescreen Presentation Audio Commentary with Stars Michael Baldwin and Angus Scrim Deleted Scenes, Also On DVD PHANTASM and PHANTASM III trailers PHANTASM III: Behind The Scenes Screenplay (DVD-ROM)

Amazon.com

In the original Phantasm, The Tall Man (Angus Scrimm), a villainous mortuary employee, breeds dwarves inside tombs to be "workers" in another realm. Don Coscarelli's film was enticingly cryptic, but Phantasm III is a confused mess. Mike (A. Michael Baldwin) and his big brother, Jody (Bill Thornbury), are recently orphaned and become grossly entangled in the supernatural crime scene occurring at the cemetery, as The Tall Man seeks to kill everyone in town. The boys recruit Jody's buddy, Reggie (Reggie Bannister), an ice cream man, to help squelch The Tall Man, to no avail. In Phantasm III, the same boys, all grown up, are still battling The Tall Man, though his dwarves have multiplied and have wiped out entire cities across Idaho. Zombies prevail, and the viewer never really finds out The Tall Man's purpose, or why he wants to claim Mike. Phantasm's inimitable mystery and style, with the chrome orb that flies towards victim's heads with rotating blades, the finger in a box that bleeds yellow goo, or the tuning fork gate to the dwarf netherworld, is replaced in Phantasm III by schlock gore, in which dwarves are shot with machine guns and felled like trees. Mystery is spoiled by too much dialogue spoken by the before nearly-mute Tall Man, and by the dwarves who've acquired silly monster faces under hoods that previously hid their identity. The film's greatest asset is its wondrously eerie title theme song by Fred Myrow and Malcolm Seagrave, reiterated from the original horror masterpiece. --Trinie Dalton

I know there's some concern regarding whether this region 1 DVD release is the unrated version as the packaging indicates or the VHS R-rated reissue. I watched both the DVD and VHS versions simultaneously last night as picture-in-picture and there is definitely one noticably extended scene. When Reggie enters the mausoleum and is captured by Rocky and Tanesha, the sentinel punctures into Tanesha's forehead. You now see much more blood pouring out of the sentinel, more screaming and a larger puddle of blood on the floor. This scene runs at least 10-15 seconds longer compared to the R rated version. It's funny to see in the R rated version, no blood is seen pouring out of the sentinel. Other than that, I found no other differences between versions. I know 10-15 seconds doesn't sound like much, but being the sentinel scenes are the standout scenes in these films, they're always the ones that get trimmed. I think those extra seconds make a difference and it's worth the purchase. The DVD looks and sounds great.

Wow,thank god I brought my 4 movie collection of the Phantasm seris when I did!The price rapist are out full force on these movies now.I don`t get why people are doing this to a small cult group of society that only loves these type of movies.Well,for people that sell them saying that they are "rare" and hard to find,I got news.If you have the internet,NOTHING is hard to find.Just keep plugging away.Not everyone is out to tear your eyeballs out.I will buy the European dvd versions before I get raped.Most of their releases are better quality these days anyway.Region free is the way to go these days it seems.

More sci-fi than horror reuniting the original cast to continue the phanstasm series in this 3rd enty on a larger scale and special effects budget. Unfortunately, there are some addtional characters the script would have been better without that appear to be added only to appear to a younger generation. These characters detract from the story without adding anything new or exciting and are the only negative to this movie. There is an R and an unrated version which has a few more seconds of blood so be sure to get the unrated version. This is one entertaining film from start to finish with a cliff hanger of an ending so be warned when it's over you want it to continue and the fourth DVD in this series is seling for high price.

Phantasm III: Lord of the Dead, the second sequel to Don Coscarelli's original, cerebral horror flick, picks up right where the second film left off. Reggie (Reggie Bannister) and Mike (A. Michael Baldwin) are still on the run from the seemingly indestructible Tall Man (Angus Scrimm) who is in the process of devestating small towns across the mid-west. In the meantime, he has plans for Mike, which leads Reggie across the country on a rescue mission along with some unlikely allies. Mike's older brother Jody (Bill Thornbury) returns as well, in an unexpected form, to lend a hand too. Like the above Amazon review states, Phantasm III leaves little to the imagination in terms of gore effects, and the story is nowhere near as cerebral as the original Phantasm, but Phantasm III is still a more than solid sequel in Coscarelli's series. The overall story becomes expanded and Coscarelli does a great job tying things together using footage from the original film, and despite some plot holes, just about everything works here. All in all, Phantasm III is a fine and underrated sequel, and once again, thanks to Anchor Bay, such a film gets an equally fine DVD release featuring commentary, behind the scenes, and trailers.

The movie is great for horror movie fans. It was a suprise to me that it's not popular in movie stores, I can't find it anywhere! Anyways even if your not a horror movie fan the movie is worth seeing. I personally never heard of Phantasm until I seen the video at a store. Ever since then I have been hooked on the whole series. The Tall Man was a suprise to see, he's like a Frankenstein and zombie look alike. So if you have'nt stoped reading my reveiw I would give this movie a chance if I were you. The cover may not look interesting, But I swear to you that you can look forward to a couple of suprises. Never underestimate the power of cult classics and the Tall Man. I give this movie ****1/2

Ahhh the tall man. My enjoyment of his character knows no limits. I have been terrified of him since i was little and it was reestablished with the new Blu Ray release of number 2. This is the newer chapter in the book of the tall man, so let's hit it! This release is actually pretty good and very underrated. Does it do anything new? No, not really. We get revealed just enough new information while leaving enough in question to keep up our thirst. A lot of people seeing the Blu Ray of 2 might think it isn't worth buying any of the others on DVD. People would say maybe I grab the first film but the third?!? The third film is worth it and I will tell you why. It never feels old and rehashed even though for any logical reason it should. It plays out like a beautifully done chapter in a book. They bring back the "real" Michael and not a feeble attempt at trickery with a recast. Although that may seem like no big deal to some, the second film is just not the same without him, even with the great chemistry between James LeGros and Reggie. Coscarelli does a remarkable job to help us forget the second film's recast while still showing us enough to tie the whole experience together. Call it creative. Call it genius but within ten minutes you forget Michael got played by someone else last film.

This is a widescreen video that's been cleaned up too. Anchor Bay took some time cleaning the print but it is a shame they didn't go the extra mile and give us an HD transfer or hitting us with deluxe editions like Shout Factory has done. There's a commentary track which is always great fun with Angus remembering more about each scene than the director or Reggie. The film itself has a large amount of humor in it.
