This Phantasm: Ravager promo pays tribute to Angus Scrimm

Phantasm Ravager Angus Scrimm

PHANTASM: RAVAGER, probably the final film in the much-beloved PHANTASM franchise, has just released a featurette that both covers a lot of ground about the film but also pays a tender tribute to the late star Angus Scrimm, who has played the villainous Tall Man since 1979. It's a bittersweet moment, to be sure, but the release is tantalizingly close, and I urge all fans to check out the promo below!

For 37 years, audiences have followed small town friends Reggie, Mike, and Jody in their quest to stop the evil, dimension-hopping schemes of The Tall Man (Angus Scrimm in his final performance) and his armada of killer Sentinel Spheres.  Now, Don Coscarelli’s acclaimed horror/sci-fi Phantasm franchise comes to a close in a truly epic finale, a multi-dimensional battle across multiple timelines, alien planets, and altered realities, where no less than the fate of Earth is on the line.

PHANTASM: RAVAGER was directed by David Hartman, who co-wrote the script with Don Coscarelli. It stars Reggie Bannister, Angus Scrimm, A. Michael Baldwin, Kathy Lester, Bill Thornbury, and Daniel Schweiger.

The film will hit theaters and Digital HD alongside PHANTASM: REMASTERED on October 7th. They will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on December 6th.
