Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
Way back in March of 2014 the world learned that a fifth installment would be happening within the PHANTASM franchise. The film will be titled PHANTASM: RAVAGER and it is directed by David Hartman with series creator Don Coscarelli supervising. Hardcore fans of the films grinned with joy upon the announcement but then came a period of time where we have heard nothing more on the subject.
Since then the momentum for PHANTASM: RAVAGER has been really growing, making it one of the most see films for Horror fans in 2016.
PHANTASM: RAVAGER stars Angus Scrimm and Reggie Bannister, as well as Michael Baldwin, Bill Thornbury and Kat Lester.
"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."
Also, the 4K digital restoration of the 1979 film PHANTASM: REMASTERED is still something to keep your eyes open for. It was supervised by Don Coscarelli and J.J. Abrams.
PHANTASM: RAVAGER will be in limited theaters on October 7th.
The PHANTASM Archives blog states that both Video ETA and Blu-ray.com have December 6 listed as the release date for PHANTASM: RAVAGER on DVD and Blu-ray.
