Bloody Disgusting reader Elena F. e-mailed me explaining that she recently spoke with Kathy Lester, one of the stars of the Phantasm franchise, who revealed that an unconfirmed Tuesday, October 7 release date is about to be announced for Phantasm: Ravager! We’ll update you when the date is officially announced, but for now it appears we’re only a few months away from the return of the Tall Man!!
For the first time in the franchise’s history, a new director is helming the production, one David Hartman.
Ravager, which will be the fifth and final entry in Coscarelli’s classic horror Phantasm series, features Reggie Bannister (a veteran of all five films) in his decades long pursuit of the malevolent Tall Man, and it finally forces him to confront the mysteries at the heart of the Phantasm saga. The entire original cast is back including Michael Baldwin, Bill Thornbury, Kathy Lester and Angus Scrimm, along with some great new characters.
