The horror community as a whole was shocked to learn a few months back that a fifth installment in the Phantasm franchise was shot behind all of our backs over the course of the past couple years, unexpected news that was followed up with the reveal of a pretty damn awesome teaser trailer.
Naturally, we’ve been waiting for word on a release date, which has potentially arrived. Read on!
Bloody Disgusting reports that a reader tipped them off to the news that the David Hartman-directed Phantasm: Ravager is set for release on Tuesday, October 7th, and that the official announcement of the date is impending. For now, we can only hope that the tipster is correct, as that brings the Tall Man and his angry balls back into our lives in less than five months. Yes please!
In the meantime, check out the teaser trailer below, in case ya missed it!
Ravager features Reggie Bannister (a veteran of all five films) in his decades-long pursuit of the malevolent Tall Man, and it finally forces him to confront the mysteries at the heart of the Phantasm saga. The entire original cast is back including Michael Baldwin, Bill Thornbury, Kat Lester, and Angus Scrimm, along with some great new characters.
