"Whether you've always loved PHANTASM, never saw it, or never even had the affection for Don Coscarelli's nightmarish tale, I cannot think of a better way to experience this film now than with the remastered version." -Heather Wixson, Daily Dead

A young boy and his friends face off against a mysterious grave robber known only as the Tall Man, who keeps a mysterious arsenal of terrible weapons with him!

Join us for the highly-anticipated restoration and remaster of cult-sensation PHANTASM, a legendary 1979 independent horror film recently restored by J.J. Abrams (a huge fan) and his comapny Bad Robot, under the supervision of director Don Coscarelli, and presented in theaters by Fantastic Fest and Alamo Drafthouse.

BONUS: Via streaming video, Q&A with Coscarelli and original cast members will follow the screening, plus the premiere of a clip from the forthcoming franchise installment "Phantasm: Ravager."
