Topic: Rank The Phantasm Series

Hello, I've lurked around here for a while but for some reason haven't posted until now. I always liked this site and it's forums.

If you've seen all four Phantasm movies, rank them in your order of preference. This is my personal favorite Horror series and I love all four of them. IMO, it's a very rare series where every entry is genuinely good. I rank them as:


Phantasm II
Phantasm
Phantasm IV: Oblivion
Phantasm III: Lord Of The Dead


Like I said though, I absolutely love all four and consider the series almost flawless.

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

Phantasm 8.5
Phantasm II 7.5
Phantasm IV 6
Phantasm III 5.5

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

Have not seen all but i do like 2 the best

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

They're all worth seeing in my opinion.

Wow jigsaw...you really waited a while to post after registering.  smile 

It has been a long time since I've seen any of these movies, and I don't think I've seen all four.  From what I have seen, and remember, I'd have to go with 2.  That one was awesome.  I remember it being hyped big time in Fangoria and Gorezone became it came out, and I was really psyched to see it.

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

I've only seen the first two.

Didn't like the first one.  At all.  Except for the sphere stuff.

I did enjoy the second one, though.  The story's a little tighter (but still straight out of left field lol ), it has better actors (Bannister improved since the first one, as well) and Coscarelli did a better job directing it.  Plus the sphere stuff was better than in the first. 

Not a great flick by any stretch (IMO) but fun, nonetheless.

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

Phantasm 8/10
Phantasm 2 8/10
phantasm 3  5/10
phantasm 4  6/10

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

I only have the 1st one but i don't think it's as good as most make out but i still want to see the others.

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

I liked the 2nd one with the psychic girl , they finally found another ally and then they kill her straight off in the third movie - WTF , making the 2nd movie kind of redundant.

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

I've only seen the first three!

But,
Phantasm
Phantasm 2
Phantasm 3.

LOL   Now those kinda jokes takes me back to my school-yard days.

Anyway...

Phantasm - so, so

Phantasm II - real good (not great, just good)

Phantasm IV: Oblivion - wack

Phantasm III: Lord Of The Dead - wack

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

I give them all a 9/10 because they're always good  to watch when you're in any kind of mood.

Yeah, I know. I've had my account for a while but never got around to posting for some reason. But I think I'll hang around for a bit smile

Glad to see others here have seen this series, it's pretty obscure and little-known among the mainstream but it's nice to see it has a lot of recognition here.

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

I still haven't seen them hmm. I need to get on that ha ha.

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

They're all well worth your while smile And thankfully all four are finally on DVD and fairly easy to acquire.

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

I watched all four of these again recently, remembered how much I love them all. They all go so well together. Still waiting for the fifth to be made to complete the set.

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

I think I go:

2
1 (just couldn't get past the 70's clothes)
4 (by a little bit over 3)
3

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

^ - You have the exact same order as me big_smile

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

Here's something that any fan should find cool and the next best thing to a new movie: the unproduced Phantasm V script.

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

^^
I remember reading that a few months ago, and I thought "Great, they're going to turn Phantasm into Resident Evil."

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series
