Since its release in 1979, director Don Coscarelli's epic tale of The Tall Man, his deadly silver Sentinel Spheres, and the group of small town friends who must band together to stop his dimension-hopping schemes has captivated and terrified horror and sci-fi fans around the world. An immediate success, bringing in 40 times its production budget, the film has influenced generations of filmmakers. Thirty-seven years later, PHANTASM has been finally restored to its original glory by J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot and Coscarelli, with a stunning new 4K remaster and 5.1 surround sound mix from the original elements that ensures Phantasm will be around to scare the hell out of generations to come.

Some movies just dont come across the same as they did 30 years ago..and this is one of them. Really found myself saying " what was I thinking"...bad acting ( normal for horror films back then), stupid characters, and very poor supposed to be "jump" parts, just made me think how young and naive I was back then, or how BAD some of the films really were.

It doesnt hold up, and thats too bad as I was looking forward to this one.

Great movie! I haven't seen this movie in a very long time. The first time I've seen this movie, I couldn't get through it. Now, I can!

Phantasm is wildly imaginative and legitimately creepy, confronting death and mourning as part of the coming-of-age process while also delivering nutty Jawa-type critters and blood spurting out of peoples' faces.

I have never found the movie to be scary, but I still think it's one of the best ever in the genre. It's a flawless and captivating film and even seeing it for the 100th time, I watch enrapt.

One of the classics. Very dated, almost too so to be scary, but a must for every horror fan. Watch it with a huge bowl of popcorn and just enjoy it for what it is, a brilliantly done classic film!

I still have a very soft spot for this horror cult classic. There is so much going on in this wild plot that it's hard to really know what exactly is going on and yet it is still extremely entertaining. Has some creepy and jumpworthy moments, but mostly it is all the little things that only Phantasm has the gall to put in the same film all at once. Bad acting and dated effects bounce off Phantasm's armor for me, but I can see how this wouldn't be enjoyed by all. The Tall man. The sphere. The dwarves. The Lady in Lavender. The '70 Barracuda. Come get indoctrinated into the Phantasm mythos!
