Earlier this year we were surprised to learn that a fifth installment in the Phantasm franchise is soon headed our way and has in fact already been shot. Titled Phantasm: Ravager, we’ve heard very little about the project in the last several months, and today the silence has been broken with a little holiday treat!
In a special video posted over on the Silver Sphere YouTube channel, franchise creator Don Coscarelli and Ravager director David Hartman tease the upcoming film with a brief collection of clips that weren’t previously seen in the trailer. They also impart a holiday message in the video and reveal that Ravager is good to go for 2015.
So if you’ve been hungry for more on the Phantasm front, check out the video below. You’ll also find the aforementioned trailer down yonder, which we shared earlier this year!
Ravager features Reggie Bannister (a veteran of all five films) in his decades-long pursuit of the malevolent Tall Man, and it forces him to finally 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.
