In this day and age with movies constantly churning out sequels it’s kind of refreshing to hear that Phantasm V: Ravager will be the final entry in the series. Angus Scrimm returns once more as the Tall Man, Michael Baldwin as Mike Pearson and Reggie Bannister as Reggie.
It is said that this film will finally reveal all the secrets in the franchise and that we will see the Tall Man’s home world. What makes this movie different is that it will be directed by David Hartman instead of Don Coscarelli, who directed the previous four films. It would still be good to finally see some closure in the series. Phantasm: Ravager is expected to be released in 2015.
