"Along with Raimi, Coscarelli cut against the grain of '80s horror, leavening scares with comedy..." -- Grade: B
The mortician known as "The Tall Man" returns with his deadly spheres to recruit new members for his army of the undead.
The Tall Man is back with a vengeance in Phantasm II, the second chapter in the cult classic Phantasm series! Released after seven years in a mental hospital, Mike convinces his old pal Reggie to join forces with him to hunt down and destroy the Tall Man once and for all. Mike's visions lead them to a quiet little town where a horde of flying killer balls aim to slice and dice their gruesome way through each of them. Exploding with special effects, unparalleled thrills, horror and suspense, Phantasm II climaxes with a blood-curdling conclusion that you have to see to believe.
A pair of romantically inclined psychic teens and their middle-aged friend, Reg, battle the evil Tall Man and his legions of the undead.
