*Phantasm is a 1979 American science fantasy horror film that was directed, written, photographed, and edited by Don Coscarelli. The first film in the Phantasm franchise, it introduces the Tall Man (Angus Scrimm), a supernatural and malevolent undertaker. It has appeared on several critics' lists of best horror films, and it has been cited as an influence on later horror series.*
And if you saw it as a kid, it was probably the scariest thing you had ever seen. I was never a horror movie fan (I'm a big chicken and I hate to be scared) but somehow I found myself "hiding" under an end table so I could continue watching tv after my parents had told me to get to bed. My mom went upstairs and once the movie started, my dad was oblivious to my presence. By the time I realized I was in way over my head and should most definitely not be watching this movie, I was too paralyzed with fear to move and I certainly did not dare to go upstairs, in the dark, alone...
This was a good one. And I promise, it doesn't matter if you're a ten year old kid hiding under an end table or a full grown adult - this movie is legit terrifying. Thanks for the scare Tall Man.
