Have you heard about all the mysterious deaths recently. People are saying its the work of The Tall Man…You know…The Tall Man, the creepy dude that runs the funeral home, yeah that guy. People say he’s been killing folks and burying them up at Morningside cemetary…well I don’t know about you but I’m getting the hell outta this small California town.

How could we talk about horror movies and not discuss Phantasm. I mean thanks to this movie people had another reason to get creeped out by morticians and funeral parlors and dwarves and flying silver balls…lets get to it.

The story centers around a couple of brothers living in a small town where people have been dying under strange circumstances or just disappearing. Mike, the younger brother decides to investigate, Scooby-Doo style and soon discovers that things at the mortuary are not what they seem. Aside from The Tall Man (played by the super creepy Angus Scrimm) and his dwarven minions, theres these super fast silver orbs that will fuck you up. Mike involves his older brother Jody in his investigation, as well as their friend Reggie. Crazy shit keeps happening, turns out The Tall Man is from another planet and has been taking his victims there to be slaves (hope I didn’t ruin it for you) but wait friends, theres still more to come.

Thats right friends it’s another nightmare inducing film I watched as a kid. Another in a long line of films that I wasn’t supposed to watch but my brothers let me. I barely scratched the surface of this super creepy, low budget masterpiece but hopefully enough to get you interested. Its got gore, scares and may cause you to sleep with a night light which is why Phantasm gets a rating of: Do You Have The BallsTo Watch It Alone. Till next time friends, stay entertained.
