“One of the most beloved horror movies of its era, precisely because it’s so different.” — L.A. Times

“PHANTASM is better experienced than explained…its big scares work because they seemingly continue to emerge from a writer’s feverish subconscious, one racked with dread and confusion.” — Empire Magazine

“Don Coscarelli‘s horror masterpiece isn’t just creepy, funny and wildly entertaining – it’s weird. Deeply weird. Endearingly weird. Weird on the kind of wavelength that you really don’t see very often. And it’s a wavelength that many horror fans seem to be right in tune with.” — Slash Film

4K restoration! At only 23 years old, Don Coscarelli wrote, produced, directed, shot and edited his magnum opus — one that’s truly withstood the test of time, and has influenced many successive generations of filmmakers. Phantasm deftly mixes gothic horror, sci-fi, surrealism and a killer prog rock score together in a grief-ridden adolescent fever dream that horror fans have never stopped worshipping. (AGFA)
