Phantasm III Lord of the Dead Review:
This is the third Phantasm film and the first to have an indie release since the financial disappointment of Phantasm II. How was its smaller budget and more influence from the director? Well, pretty good.
Michael Baldwin returns as Mike and does a fantastic job. He really is a relatable character and brings a human aspect to the movies. Reggie Banister is, as always, perfect. The Regmaster is back and better than ever.
Now the real show stoppers were Tim and Rocky. They weren’t better than the others, but I was surprised by how much I like them. Angus Scrimm delves deeper into the tall man mythology. He brings new light to the character and as always becomes a intimidating villain.
The plot is also a step up. It feels like a falling world crumbles around Reggie as he stumbles his way across the Dead towns. There’s some great practical effects, action sequences, provoking thoughts, and funny dialogue to keep you entertained. This is not a perfect movie, but for a Phantasm fan it’s about as good as it get. 3.5/5 Stars. #phantasm #phantasmiii #phantasmlordofthedead #angusscrimm #reggiebannister #tallmam #movie #movies #moviereview #moviereviews #2017 #weekend #friday #fun #scary
