.:Hallowe'en:Horror:Project:. Day 27

Day 27: "Phantasm." One of my favorite films. This film, Dario Argento's "Suspiria" & Fulci's "Beyond" are the films I believe come closest to filming a nightmare. So good. Coscarelli hits this one out of the park. It's almost Hitchcockian how good of a movie he got out of so little. Truly quite an achievement. Angus Scrimm is amazing in this. I love that the lady version of the Tall Man let's Tommy "finish" before killing him. I can't tell if the aliens have some breeding program they are working on or it was an act of final kindness for a condemned man or maybe she just loves hillbilly baby batter. At any rate, what a fantastic film. Despite all of it's flaws it holds up so well & still maintains some scares.
