It's Phantastic Friday with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. We gots the follow up to to the original movie from 9 years earlier, this one had a $3,000,000 budget and grossed $7,282,851 just in the US, it was filmed in Chatsworth, CA.
Eegah!! sent over a soundclip from the movie for our earjoyment, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button there next to the portal to another world, NOW, Rufus The Gnat! Here's an earfull of... PHANTASM II!
Years later, our heroes, Mike and Reggie, are visited again by The Tall Man's creepy little minions and have to escape by crashing through their 2-story window! I have the feeling that most people would probably kill themselves attempting this move in real life.
The two regroup and decide they need to get some supplies from a deserted hardware store, torches, guns, ammo, a chain saw, etc. Reggie puts money in the register before they split.
They try to help a girl they find in a basement, but, when the blanket is lifted, this is what they find in her back!.. Yuk!!
Strange things are always going on at The Tall Man's mortuary, here are a few examples.
Kenneth Tigar plays Father Meyers, he crosses The Tall Man and gets a flying driller orb in the cabeza, let the blood flow freely!
Mike's girlfriend, Liz, gets a ride to the crematorium by the weirdo mortician!
Liz barely gets away before she gives the mortician a ride of his own into the incererator!
The damned mortician shows up again, this time though, he gets in the path of an orb!
Reggie has a close encounter with a being from The Tall Man's world!
Reggie had added some hydrocloric acid to a vat of serum, so, when Liz stabs the big guy with that giant needle, he gets a real surprise! Game over?..
NO WAY!! Reggie's gal pal has a little surprise for him, parts III and IV are around the corner!!
