Huge Phantasm V Update...Trailer, Casting, and More

The ball is back! After the exiting news a few days ago that the fifth (and final) entry in to the venerable Phantasm franchise will be seeing the light of day soon, there was even more outstanding news today. Not only was some very important information regarding casting confirmed, but the world also got a look at the first trailer for Part V, subtitled : Ravager!

First the casting news...not only will  Reggie Bannister and Michael Baldwin return, but the best part of the casting announcement is that Angus Scrimm will be returning for his fifth pass as "The Tall Man." There had been some concern that due to Scrimms advanced age and possibly failing health that he may need to be replaced in any future Phantasm films. Luckily for everyone, Scrimm is back!

Couple that with the release of the teaser trailer for Part V, and yo may have a recipe for the greatest day in a Phantasm fans life. Check out the trailer:

Arrow In the Head had some quotes for series head honcho Don Coscarelli: "The Phantasm films have been a guerrilla operation for decades now, totally outside of the studio system. We do them for the fans, and I think Ravager will definitely please them.Int the past few years several studios have made offers to remake Phantasm with large budgets, but the fans were very vocal that they wanted the original cast to return and and finish this iteration of the story with class. And for the first time there's an extended sequence in the Tall Man's home world. I know Phantasm fans will be excited as I am to see it."
