It's my personal favorite Horror series. I plan to have a marathon of all four again soon, thought it was only fairly recently I had a Phantasmthon this past October. The series is just infinitely rewatchable to me.

Definitely give it another go, sometime. The way the whole series ties together over the course of the sequels is great.

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

Thought I'd give this a little bump, see if any more fans (or Phans big_smile) are here.

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

Bumping this again, if that's okay.

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

Giving this another bump with Phantasm II now out in an awesome new Blu-ray edition smile

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

Cool you finally got around to seeing them, it's a great series for sure.

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

Thought I'd share this, a damn cool rendering of the legendary Quadra Shotgun Reggie uses in the sequels:

Always thought that'd be an awesome weapon to use in a video game.

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

The second Phantasm is my favorite. It seems really polished compared to the first one. As the sequels went on, it felt as if they lost touch who the Tall Man was. Personally I loved it when he was regarded as an alien who has come to take out dead as soldiers. Felt it got kind of muddied when they started using him as a undead boogeyman.

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

The Tall Man was definitely creepy early on in the series. He always struck me as a bit of an alien with the space aspect of him.

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

My favorites go chronologically, 1 2 3 4

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

Phantasm II turns 25 tomorrow, anyone watching? I'll try to tune in.

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

I'll be marathoning the series as part of my Halloween viewing, anyone else doing the same?

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

With the upcoming Ravager coming out later this year I wonder where it'll rank for the fans? I have a feeling it'll be my new third favorite after 2 and 1.

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

Ravager apparently has been confirmed for an unspecified 2015 release date. Can't wait.

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

Since my last post in this thread three years ago, I've seen them all now.

Part 3 -- Wow.  Can you say "clusterfuck"?

Part 4 -- a little better than 3 but not by much.  IMO the series has yet to reach the high watermark of part 2 (though in regards to the Phantasm series, the term "high watermark" loses much of its meaning lol ).

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

Phantasm: 4/5
Phantasm II: 2/5
Phantasm III: 0.5/5
Phantasm IV: 0.5/5

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

I've only watched the first two and i like them equally. 9/10 each.

Re: Rank The Phantasm Series

3 and 4 are definitely worth seeing if you liked the first two. They're not as good but still solid.
