Phantasm II Review:
The ball is back! This film came and be when the 80’s became obsessed with slasher films and distributors were trying to cash in. This is how Texas Chainsaw, Psycho, Sleepaway Camp, and even Phantasm came to get such awesome second installments.
The one we’re reviewing today is Phantasm II and what a ride it was. I really only have two problems with this film. The first being is that they recast Mike and the second is that in one scene they should have been seen by a henchman. That’s really it.
The movie boasts a fun and engrossing plot that keeps you entertained from start to finish. Not to mention the awesome that is The Tall Man, played yet again to perfection by Angus Scrimm. The movie adds to the mythos, builds layers of emotion to certain characters, and expands the Talk Man’s reign of destruction. There are also some amazing practical effects in the movie. Even by today’s standards, they’re really impressive.
Overall, this is a fun and well done sequel that deserves a shout out. 4.5/5 Stars. Maybe even better than the original. Maybe. #phantasm #phantasmboxset #phantasmravager #phantasmii #screamfactory #movie #movies #moviereview #moviereviews #2017 #friday #weekend #fun #guardiansofthegalaxy2
