Phantasm Remastered Review:
If it doesn’t scare you, you’re already dead! I love that tagline, now to the review. I’ll start with the actors. Phantasm has a great set of characters. We get Mike and Jody, who are sympathetic and acted to perfection.
However, the standout protagonist was Reggie, the ice cream man and Jody’s best friend. He’s as cool as horror protagonists come and he’s up there with Ash for me. Now, of course, Angus Scrimm did well. He is kinda scary in this movie and gives off a very mysterious vibe.
When it comes to the plot, this is probably the most inventive horror film I’ve ever seen. In just an hour and a half, they were able to weave interdimensional travel, planetary travel, horror, action, and a great soundtrack.
I also think the cinematography deserves a shoutout. Although this movie had some consistency problems concerning the dreams and reality, I think that was intended to help confuse the audience and put them in a “Phantasm.” Overall, it’s one of my favorite horror films and deserves 4/5 stars. #phantasm #horror #movie #movies #moviereview #moviereviews #angusscrimm #reggiebannister #horrorfan #friday #weekend #apocalypse #80s #70s #slasher #ash #evildead #ashvsevildead
