Phantasm 2 (1988)
Director: Don Coscarelli
Main Stars: James Le Gros, Reggie Bannister, Angus Scrimm, Paula Irvine, Samantha Phillips
Storyline: Mike is realised from the mental hospital but he is till bound to stop the Tall Man.
Review (Spoils): Mike (James Le Gros) is back after he finally tells the doctors that none of the experiences in the first movie happened. Once out he runs to old friend Reggie (Reggie Bannister) and the wok together to hunt down the Tall Man (Angus Scrimm). During this a young woman named Liz (Paula Irvine) is having nightmares of the Tall Man and creates a bond with Mike. During the hunt for the Tall Man Liz and her family are being haunted and tormented by the Tall Man and his short lurkers.
This film plays right after the first one and we have the Tall Man back, the lurkers, Reggie and his cool hair, the flying spheres and more out of the planet fun! We have a lot of the same kicks as the first film and even an ode to the classic ending.
Rating: The whole Phantasm series is just weird so do not expect anything different with this one. Sure the dream sequences are not over whelming like the first one and we still have the small jawa like lurkers and Angus Scrimm yet again plays the Tall Man. Grab some cold ones and sit back and watch this one back to back with the first one.
