With Phantasm: Ravager heading our way, now is the perfect time to revisit where the series all began.  J.J. Abrams and his production company, Bad Robot, spent 18 months meticulously restoring the 1979 cult classic, which is set to be released simultaneously with Phantasm: Ravager.  If you just can’t wait to see the stunning 4K restoration, Phantasm: Remastered will be playing in select theaters this Saturday, September 24th, as part of Art House Theater Day.  To find if it’s playing near you, check the website here.

Written and Directed by Don Coscarelli, and starring Angus Scrimm, Reggie Bannister, and A. Michael Baldwin, Phantasm: Remastered will be available On Demand and Digital HD on October 4th, and in theaters October 7th, 2016.

The remastered original classic that started it all, in which two brothers discover their local mortuary hides a legion of hooded killer dwarfs, a flying drill-ball, and the demonic mortician who enslaves the souls of the damned.
