The sentinel spheres will be flying fast and furious, seeking out crunchy craniums to implant themselves in when Well Go USA lets loose the American model of a new six-disc ultimate Phantasm Blu-ray box set this spring.
Earlier last week, Arrow Video announced their plans for an honorary release of all five Phantasm features for the UK on April 24 packaged in a special deluxe compilation collection, and now the good ol' U.S. of A. is getting its version of this incredible horror treasure one month earlier, on March 28.
Last year saw a rabid revival of Phantasm interest worldwide with the 4K remastering of Don Coscarelli's original Phantasm from 1979 and a long-delayed new entry, Phantasm: Ravager, getting a Halloween-time release and featuring the final performance of the late Angus Scrimm as the mysterious alien undertaker, The Tall Man.
This chilling chest of terror will be stuffed with new interviews, tributes, BTS stills, audio commentaries, home videos, trailers, deleted scenes and documentaries that'll take you until next Halloween to watch. It's also the first time Phantasm III: Lord of the Dead and Phantasm IV: Oblivion have ever been given the glossy HD treatment.
Check out the rundown of bonus material along with an image of the unboxed UK edition below and exclusive American box art above. The Phantasm Collection is available for pre-order now for $79.98.
