Phantasm: Ravager, the fifth installment in the storied horror franchise orchestrated by Don Coscarelli, is set to stun audiences when it flies into theaters on Oct. 7. To help get you up to speed on all things Phantasm, here's a new comedy featurette titled Phantasm and You that summarizes exactly what the trio of Mike, Reggie and Jody have been up against battling the Tall Man, the Lady in Lavender, the red-tinted alien planet, soaring silver death spheres and those gruntish interdimensional dwarfs over the last 37 years of cinematic history.
Here's the film's official synopsis:
For 37 years, audiences have followed small town friends Reggie, Mike, and Jody in their quest to stop the evil, dimension-hopping schemes of The Tall Man (Angus Scrimm in his final performance) and his armada of killer Sentinel Spheres. Now, Don Coscarelli’s acclaimed horror/sci-fi Phantasm franchise comes to a close in a truly epic finale, a multi-dimensional battle across multiple timelines, alien planets, and altered realities, where no less than the fate of Earth is on the line.
Roll the reel on this awesome retro educational short shot in glorious black and white and be educated on the world of Phantasm by the time those chrome sentinel orbs start drilling into your skull.
