UPDATED: Phantasm: Ravager arrives this Fall!

Phantasm Ravager Don Coscarelli Angus Scrimm Reggie Bannister

UPDATE: Per Entertainment Weekly, PHANTASM: RAVAGER will be hitting theaters and digital HD on October 7th, alongside the remastered rerelease of the original PHANTASM. It's official!

Social media makes horror fandom so much more complicated, but it's always an exciting journey. The newest obtuse social media hint comes from Facebook, and it concerns that holy of holies: the much-awaited PHANTASM: RAVAGER, which is supposedly already completed. Here's the post in question:

Hidden in this seemingly innocuous post from the horror convention is the statement that Reggie Bannister's conflict is, in fact, the premiere of PHANTASM: RAVAGER. Obviously, this might be an honest mistake, but it could also be an accidental leak. But if it's true, we might be facing the Tall Man once more extremely soon. The Monster-Mania Con in Hunt Valley, MD takes place on September 30th and ends on October 2nd, so sometime in between those two days there might actually be a premiere!

Of course, that doesn't mean that we'll actually get to see it, but let's keep the hope alive!

Director Don Coscarelli calls RAVAGER "a swan song to the series.":

Almost every one of the original cast is back. They’re all great in it. Angus Scrimm is magnificent. There’s some new iterations of those brain-shucking spheres and a lot of good stuff that the fans will enjoy. It ties up a lot of the storylines and answers some questions that fans have had.

The cast will include Reggie Bannister, Michael Baldwin, Bill Thornbury, Kathy Lester and Angus Scrimm, may he rest in peace.
