    I'm definitely looking forward to Shout's Phantasm II release next year. With that in mind, I came across this youtube video with over 20 minutes of deleted footage. It's interesting stuff and certainly suggests Coscarelli had hoped to keep it more inline with the original than it finally came to be (I'm referring to the idea of never being sure what's a dream and what' reality). However, some of it was cut for good reason (like the scene with the priest that goes on for far to long). I don't remember this footage on the R2 DVD's, but it's been a long time since I've watched them. Has anyone seen this before?

    That's footage from the workprint. The workprint is available as part of the bootleg Quadrilogy set from XT Video.

    It's also on this release I got years ago:

    I have faith Cliff can acquire that footage as extra material for the upcoming Scream Factory blu-ray.

    I knew it was from a workprint, but I didn't know it had been on any releases. I don't suppose that the infamously edited sphere scene will be reinstated on the blu-ray.

    Highly doubt it.

    I'll tell you this right now, when Anchor Bay hears about Phantasm II on Blu-ray, they're gonna respond with the first one on Blu. You watch, I bet it will even be released before II is. Guessin' but it's a thought. ;)

    I won't argue with your theory. I hope they do. I wouldn't mind a Beastmaster blu-ray while they're at it.
