Phantasm 2 ★★ 1988 (R

Teen psychic keeps flashing on villainous Tall Man. A rehash sequel to the original, cultishly idiosyncratic fantasy, wherein more victims are fed into the interdimensional abyss and Mike discovers that the horror is not all in his head. Occasional inspired gore; bloodier than its predecessor. More yuck for the buck. 97m/C VHS . James LeGros, Reggie Bannister, Angus Scrimm, Paula Irvine, Samantha (Sam) Phillips, Ken Tigar; D: Don A. Coscarelli; W: Don A. Coscarelli; C: Daryn Okada.
