    That article seems to suggest that the film is already made. How can someone make a film, one which has been highly requested, and keep it under wraps so well? In this age of twitter, facebook and other outlets where everything is talked about, I find this hard to fathom.

    I know. I'd prefer Lazerbeaker, myself.

    There was an extreeeeemely subtle reference to Phantasm 5 when Don and A Michael appeared on Graveyard Carz a month or so back but I didn't give it much thought. I'm skeptical, but of course I'd love to see it happen.

    If this is already filmed.....I wonder how it was able to stay under wraps....unless it was a zero budget production filmed over 10 days.

    Nice! If you will it, it is no dream.

    Does this mean Bubba Ho-tep 2 is in the can as well?

    What the hell?!?
    Good news :)
    This better not be a cruel joke ;)

    Incredible that they kept it a secret for so long.
    Guess there is a big chance that it will come out this year, since it's already shot.

    I believe nothing until Don says something.

    Maybe is a found footage feature....

    It sounds like a story that's been released exactly a week too soon if you know what I mean.

    Breaking:

    Artist David Hartman wrote & directed the film. Coscarelli supervised it, though.

    wow...it only took a single page of this thread for my hopes to be kindled, then raised, and then suddenly smashed to pieces. As far as I'm concerned, a Phantasm film directed by anyone other than Coscarelli is, by definition, not a Phantasm film.

    It was filmed, in part, at Reggie's house. :(

    If it stars A Michael Baldwin, Reggie Bannister, and Angus Scrimm, and features flying spheres, killer dwarves, interdimensional gateways, then it's pretty hard to NOT define it as a Phantasm film, especially if it gets the approval and supervision of Coscarelli himself. He's been very protective of this series from the getgo and has even rejected reboots and buyouts. I'd be very, very, surprised if it didn't turn out to be completely faithful to Coscarelli's original vision. He sincerely cares about his creation, which is something that I don't quite get from other directors like Sam Raimi or John Carpenter.

    Why is that sad? You know the house that Jody and Mike lived in in the first film? That was somebody's real life house, too.
