Upcoming Films: Phantasm V- Ravager(Release Date Unknown at Press Time)

For horror fans that like the lower budget horror and not the overproduced crap that comes from Hollywood's main crap machine ,is both welcome and a surprise-the surprise is that there was little to no word that this film was being worked on at all.

Taking off immediately where the last one ended, in this episode Mike travels across dimensions and time fleeing from the Tall Man, at the same time he tries to find the origins of his enemy, and what really happened the night that his brother died. Meanwhile, Reggie (accompanied by a beauty he picked up on the road) battles the spheres and the undead in a quest to find Mike before the Tall Man can complete his transformation.

Budget $650.000

So the last few trailers have lacked any kind of spunk or originality  but the last one was funny.

So without further ado here is the new trailer, below:

Here is something I found while searching for a tribute video I found this little gem.

Thank you for reading this
