A Video Tribute to Angus Scrimm
With Phantasm and Phantasm: Ravager available now on VOD for the Halloween season, our thoughts have sincerely been with the franchise’s star, Angus Scrimm, who passed away back in January of this year.
Thanks to YouTuber dustincomplete, we have an excerpt from Journey to Ravager, a Phantasm tribute video that played before screenings of Phantasm Remastered and Phantasm: Ravager at Durham, NC’s, Carolina Theatre from October 7-13, 2016.
Phantasm: Ravager is an all-new film that brings one of cinema’s longest-running franchises (36 years!) without a reboot to a close, with Mike (A. Michael Baldwin) and Reggie (Reggie Banister) teaming up to confront the dimension-hopping Tall Man (Angus Scrimm) once and for all.
For 37 years, audiences have followed small town friends Reggie, Mike, and Jody in their quest to stop the evil, dimension-hopping schemes of The Tall Man (Angus Scrimm in his final performance) and his armada of killer Sentinel Spheres. Now, Don Coscarelli’s acclaimed horror/sci-fi Phantasm franchise comes to a close in a truly epic finale, a multi-dimensional battle across multiple timelines, alien planets, and altered realities, where no less than the fate of Earth is on the line.
