Director: Don "Phantasm IV: Oblivion" Coscarelli
"Writer": Don "Phantasm II" Coscarelli
Producer: Don "Phantasm" Coscarelli

Phantasm III. Sadly not even the last of the series. You'd think by the low production values, this would be the death of the series, but somehow they found a way to make a 4th installment even cheaper. It's mostly cutting room footage of the first three, but that's a story for another time. In this movie, we have Reggie, the only surviving character from the other two films, still on his quest to destroy the Tall Man. He starts to collect a motley crew of a female Mr. T, and a small cracker child that is an idiot savant with a pistol. A rouge sphere that actually houses the spirit of a character from one of the earlier movies helps lead them to the lair of the dinks. This allows them to find out that the Tall Man doesn't like cold, yet he has a giant vat of liquid hydrogen laying around. They make him take a nestea plunge, but it doesn't work. Seems he has a giant golden sphere instead of a brain and it pops out, while a new Tall Man comes through his gates that he has set up or something. I dunno. Read the book or something, just make sure to buy it through one of our links.
