PLUS a 21” x 27” reversible poster "featuring the iconic original theatrical artwork."

From the Press Release:

One of the world’s most popular franchises in the history of horror, the Phantasm film series has terrified fans for generations and this new box set features all five frightening films in the series – PHANTASM: REMASTERED (1979), PHANTASM II (1988), PHANTASM III: LORD OF THE DEAD (1994), PHANTASM IV: OBLIVION (1998) and the most recent installment PHANTASM: RAVAGER (2016). Packaging on all five films in the collection will feature reversible sleeve art, with one side highlighting the original packaging and the reverse showing new artwork uniform exclusive to the collection.  In addition, the discs themselves will be BD50, which allow for less compression and a higher quality audio, as well as more space for the extensive bonus materials.

Again, PLEASE NOTE: The Blu-ray Release Date has Moved to April 11.
