Phantasm is the 1979 horror classic from director Don Conscarelli. In a small town where everything seems picture perfect, the Morningside Funeral home may seem like a quiet resting place for the dead, until a sinister Tall-Man (Angus Scrimm) arrives. He is unlike any normal funeral parlor worker. An adolescent boy named Mike (Michael Baldwin) spies on him and begins to notice something strange that he just can't put his finger on. He even witnesses small hooded zombie dwarfs walking around at times on the cemetery grounds. His older brother Jody (Bill Thornberry) doesn't believe in his stories and neither does a good friend of the family named Reggie (Reggie Bannister) but he must prove that the Tall-Man is the perpetrator of the strange goings on. It turns out the mortician is actually a being from another dimension with superhuman strength, equipped with deadly flying silver spheres that can drill victims' brains out. He plans to have amass an undead army that can eventually destroy all towns and it's up to the brothers and Reggie to stop his plan.moreless
