This Halloween season will be a bittersweet one for PHANTASM “phans.” It will see the release of both the newly remastered 4K scan of the original PHANTASM, but also the final film in the series PHANTASM V: RAVAGER starring the late, great Angus Scrimm, better known to horror fans by his on-screen moniker of “The Tall Man.”
The new film premieres at Fantastic Fest on September 25th. Then both films will screen as part of Beyond Fest on October 1st. Then on October 4th, they both get a VOD release, followed by a limited theatrical on October 7th, courtesy of distributor Wells Go USA.
In anticipation of the upcoming premiere, our friend Clark Collis debuted the new PHANTASM V: RAVAGER trailer on Entertainment Weekly earlier today. Check that out embedded below:
And have a look at this new trailer specifically for the remastered version of Don Coscarelli’s 1979 cult classic.
