PHANTASM is one of my all time favorite horror films. I've seen it many, many times over the last 30 years. Great story, effects (for the time) GREAT music and an overall eerie vibe that movies costing 100x more fail to achieve. The Tall Man fully creeped me out then and now. I never get tired of watching it. Don Coscarelli and team created a classic that stands the test of time. Right up there with the original Halloween, Friday The 13th and Nightmare On Elm Street films.
I just wanted to say Happy Anniversary to Phantasm!
