Format: DVD
I thought this fourth, and supposedly final, sequel was lacking something...like a plot. It tended to plod along, with little or no direction. As with the other movies in this series, this one tends to create more questions than it answers, which I thought was strange as how this is supposed to be the last Phantasm movie. Somewhat annoying....fans will be happy to see all the original cast members are back, but may be disappointed in the lack of thrills, action, scares, and coherent storyline. The previous movies played the game of leaving things open ended, making things appear not as they seem, but at least there was a fairly linear story to follow. Not here....
As I said, the original cast members are back, all showing their age, especially the Tall Man (Angus Scrimm), and I still enjoy seeing him and hearing him utter his line "Booooy!". This movie sort of picks up where the third installment left off. We do find out more information about what's happening to Mike. We also get a little more information about the Tall Man, his origins, but not nearly enough to satisfy fans of the series. I don't know, he just didn't seem as menacing as he did in previous movies, but he did appear to be more powerful, so it was really odd. Reggie is back, and is the one character to appear in all the movies. His role in this movie is less than I would have wanted, as he really didn't get to do too much and wasn't integral to the story. The whole movie seemed thrown together, without much effort given to the story or the characters. One scene that comes to mind is when Reggie gets pulled over by a police car on a lonely road while pursuing Mike. The policeman takes his license and registration, and then disappears. Reggie goes to investigate, and gets attacked by a sort of zombie cop.

Format: DVD
By reading the back of the DVD case, you will get the inclination that this film is going to deliver closure to the series. This is hardly the case. A return to the original movie in terms of being scary. Not nearly as comedic as Phantasm III, which was my personal favorite of the series, but Reggie's luck with women again delivers some well-timed comic-relief. Unlike previous movies, Reggie is not the center of attention in this movie. The plot revolves mostly around Mike and his struggle to cope with his change and to discover the origin of the Tallman(which is dabbled into, but again not fully explained, and is also quite contrary to what is expected). The movie has all the makings of a great horror film, but the promise of a final showdown is not fulfilled. Other than those gripes, the movie is left open either for a sequel, or would lead the viewer to beleive that the whole chain of events from Phantasm all the way up to Phantasm IV can be altered, and that our heroes have been given a chance to stop the Tall Man before his diabolical plans can be consumated. Good movie overall, as a fan of the Phantasm series i thouroughly enjoyed it. Phantasm and horror fans alike will enjoy this movie. Hope for a final movie!

Format: DVD
Phantasm IV is by far the best in the series. 5 out of 5. Phantasm Phans will enjoy this. Don Coscarelli made this film as a love letter to the Phans. The film uses deleted footage from the original Phantasm movie to further enhance the story line and it works. Phantasm IV begins right where Phantasm III left off. Mike leaves on a quest to escape his transformation, while Reggie fights to save him from The Tall Man. Mike, Reggie and The Tall Man are modern day representations of mythological characters and their adventures are reminders of stories about quest, heroes and villains. Mike must confront his past and the secret of The Tall Man is reviled. I have to say that in the opening of the movie, when Mike gives his speech about "The Last Perfect Day", I was on the verge of tears. Phantasm IV is a masterpiece of film.

Format: DVD
Mike, a Silver Sphere imbedded in his skull, is starting a bizarre transformation of sorts - while Reggie is left hanging, literally. The Tall Man hints that this may all be part of a larger design.
Director/writer Don Coscarelli's fourth Phantasm movie is a mixed bag of ideas, concepts, and characters. Once again picking up at the ending of the previous entry, this chapter looks the least like a Phantasm movie and, with its jumbles of flashbacks and dimension hopping, it is arguably the most surreal. It is also a radical departure in the series visual tone, as it is set entirely in a desert, with not a graveyard or mausoleum in sight. Mike spends most of the movie having visions while Reggie has repeated seriocomic run ins with The Tall Man's evil helpers (zombies, spheres, and dwarves) as he attempts to catch up with Mike. Why Reggie has carted his ice cream uniform from the first movie around and waited until now to put it back on is beyond me, but it does give the movie a goofy returning to its roots, full circle kind of feel.
Ideas take the place of plot. Granted, after Phantasm 2 and 3, the need to bring in yet another cast of characters to tag along with Reggie seems needless (though Coscarelli does a nice bait and switch in that department, and he also drops a hint that the world might be far more decimated than our characters think it is). What Phantasm 4 offers is a glimpse at the world after the Tall Man has emptied it and we get to see a gentle mortician moonlighting as sorcerer transformed into The Tall Man. It also shows that Angus Scrimm can do far more than just scowl and growl "Boooooy!
