Phantasm I, II, & III
R Directed by Don A. Coscarelli. Starring Reggie Bannister, Angus Scrimm.
REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Thu., March 23, 2000
The cult horror equivalent of the Holy Grail - will screen over three nights with director Don A. Coscarelli and stars Reggie Bannister and Angus Scrimm in attendance. The 1979 original is a garishly inventive cult classic of severed body parts and mysteriously lethal silver spheres. Phantasm II is showing on the screen for the first time since its release in 1988. (All the prints are from Coscarelli's private collection.) Phantasm III (1994) continues the grisly nightmare. The series is presented by Stephen Romano and the Alamo, the same team behind the Fulci Fest at Halloween.
