The first time all five films have been brought together on Blu-ray! Including a brand new 4K restoration of Phantasm overseen by J.J. Abrams

Phantasm 1-5: Limited Edition Collection

Limited Edition DVD/Blu-ray Dual Format Collection out 24th April 2017

Presented here in a stunning Limited Edition Dual Format release by Arrow Video, it’s the first time all five films have been brought together on Blu-ray – including a brand new 4K restoration of the 1979 classic, Phantasm, overseen by Star Wars and Star Trekhelmer J.J. Abrams.

Spanning 37 years, Don Coscarelli’s Phantasm series is as iconic as it is entertaining. With its killer flying spheres, undead dwarf minions and The Tall Man himself, it’s packed full of memorable images and moments that make it a cult horror series that stands the test of time.

When we say the Phantasm series is iconic, we’re not being hyperbolic. It’s rare to find a horror franchise that not only deftly blends gothic horror traditions with sci-fi and mind-blowing special effects, but that also stays so consistently entertaining through all of its instalments.

From 1979’s Phantasm to 2016’s Phantasm: Ravager, creator and director Don Coscarelli keeps the tale of Mike and Reggie’s (A. Michael Baldwin and Reggie Bannister) fight against The Tall Man (Angus Scrimm), his undead dwarf minions and his killer spheres truly epic. It flaunts all of the creeping terror and horrific effects you’d expect, combined with the world-destroying concepts of big budget sci-fi. Hard to define, the Phantasm series really is a genre-bending masterpiece of cult horror.
