Phantasm[Remastered] (1979)

16 Mar 2016


fresh perspective

immersive atmosphere
beautiful scenes

intricate storyline (what the fuck just happened? have to read elsewhere or re-watch)
some characters lacking development


many nice compositions and lightings in scenes. e.g. the flipped over ice cream jeep/truck scene.

weird, cranky acting, though still above average given its budget and casting and era. the ending twist is a bit strong like a bad cliffhanger, however. I suppose only one scenario can be true? Maybe I will watch the sequels eventually.

JJ Abrams / Bad robot did a great job on restoring the film.
