phantasm

Growing up in the 80’s, we had our typical stable of horror movie villains. We had Jason, Freddy and Michael doing their part to keep us entertained. One character that doesn’t get acknowledged often however is The Tall Man from Phantasm, played for years by the horror film veteran Angus Scrimm. I attribute The Tall Man’s mystique to Angus Scrimm’s menacing glare and memorable voice. The other thing I enjoyed about the Phantasm films was the consistent involvement of Reggie Bannister. No Phantasm film was complete without Uncle Reggie, and I think that helped maintain consistency in the stories. Phantasm has many well done scary moments. If you’ve never seen this classic you are truly missing out.
