Watch Phantasm II (1988) - Alternative Versions.
In the tradition of other horror movie franchises, Phantasm takes the
action route for this sequel. The horror and sci-fi are still there but
there's more combat, stuff blowing-up and gore than there was before. I
suppose it does keep things fresh but it does get a bit too
tongue-in-cheek sometimes. Kinda like Evil Dead II, I'm not sure if
this really fits in with the tone set by the first film.
Phantasm II begins right after where the first film left off. The
freaky dwarfs have invaded Mike's home and Reggie must foil the Tall
Man's attempts at kidnapping him. Flash forward seven years and Mike is
in a mental institution. He is released upon admitting that the whole
Phantasm experience was made up only to find that in his absence the
Tall Man has been plundering many of America's small towns and
thousands of graves are empty.
After the Tall Man kills Reggie's family in a gas explosion, Reg teams
up with Mike to hunt him down and kick his head in...again. All they
have to do is follow the trail of dead people, right? And this time
they are ready for whatever outlandish tricks he's ready to play on
them, armed to the teeth with quadruple-barrelled shotguns,
flame-throwers and chainsaws. Complicating matters are Mike's
inexplicable visions of the future and psychic connections to a
mysterious girl he has never met before.
As before, the Tall Man is the best thing in the film. Angus Scrimm is
so wonderfully silent and unholy that no matter how slick and
entertaining the rest of the film is he'll come out on top.
Don Coscarelli was given a budget 10 times that of the original by
Universal, but they did interfere with production quite a lot, much to
his annoyance. They said that only one of the original cast members
could return, so he chose Reggie Bannister and re-cast Mike with James
LeGros (after turning down Brad Pitt!). It does kind of ruin the
continuity a bit but it's not terribly distracting.
They also demanded a more simple and linear story, so don't expect any
of the bizarre dream sequences and flashbacks. If you're a big fan of
the first this might seem disappointing but you know how studios love
to think less of their audiences.
The higher budget helps Phantasm to have a bigger scope than the
original. The first half of the film feels like a road movie with lots
of pretty scenery while the rest is kind of like a low-rent
Ghostbusters/Lost Boys clone. Which sounds like a negative point, but
the hokey tone of the film vanishes when it heads off into HP Lovecraft
If you're looking for answers as to what the first film was all about
then you won't find many. In fact it raises more questions than
anything else. But it's still a fun ride. I'm just kind of annoyed that
the music took the more generic synth approach that was common in the
80's instead of the funky 70's beats we got before. The main Phantasm
theme is still there for your enjoyment however and gets a great finish
on the end credits.
