Publisher's Summary

"[A] glorious retrospective on the film franchise that put the fear of the Tall Man in every horror fan's heart." (HorrorHound Magazine)

“Dustin McNeill's Phantasm Exhumed is a much-needed, long overdue tribute to these seminal films. Equal parts erudite examination and enthusiastic love-letter, this book provides an in-depth history and a wealth of obscure information that even the most hardcore fan will find fascinating. Engaging, compulsive reading. I highly recommend it!" (Brian Keene, best-selling author of The Rising, Ghoul, and The Last Zombie)

Ready your shovels for Phantasm Exhumed, the first book on the making of the Phantasm franchise. Featuring more than 60 new interviews with the cast, crew, effects, creators, and studio executives, Phantasm Exhumed takes listeners behind the scenes of the franchise that catapulted the Tall Man into the annals of horror iconography. 

Trace Phantasm's history from forerunners Jim the World’s Greatest and Kenny & Company through to Phantasm: Oblivion and beyond. Contained within are the classic tales of Phantasm lore along with production stories never before told by the filmmakers. Careful what you look for... You just might find it within this book!

Phantastic!

The Phantasm franchise holds a special place in my heart. Some of the stories in this book I'd heard before, but many I hadn't. I especially enjoyed listening to the sections about Don Coscarelli's first film, Jim the World's Greatest.
