Phantasm II is currently the #1 BEST-SELLER at DVD Empire! It beats out X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Congratulations Don Coscarelli on creating a sequel still embraced by audiences over 20 years later! Rock on Phantasm II Month!

    You know, we should thank Anchor Bay. If not for their releases of I, III, and IV, it would’ve taken a LONG time for II to come to DVD. And we should also thank Universal for finally releasing II! As a phan, I thank you both (and Don Coscarelli too)!

  2. Josh:

    Maybe if the DVD does well, they will release a special edition with the unrated version and commentary. As it stands now, Phantasm II is the only one of the series not to have a commentary track in region 1 release. Thanks Universal for finally putting it out, but no thanks for sitting on it for years only to release it bare-bones.

    Bittersweet, but I am glad it’s selling well. Bring on part V!

    I was so happy when I heard Universal Studio was finally putting out Phantasm II on DVD. I have been emailing them solid for a year pleading with them to put it out on DVD. I like to think my constant “nagging” contributed to its release. Either way I’m happy it’s finally out.

    I was about 18 when i first saw phantasm 2. My brother brought home the movie and i loved it, it is our favorite horror movie ever. It was awesome to finnaly see the dvd released. Cheers to Don and cast for a great job!

    I’ve always believed P2 always proved what a great film maker Don really is. P2 is what P1 should have and could have looked like if a studio backed it. Phantasm is GREAT concept and why a big studio didn’t stick with Don…? Give this man a major studio and a budget and he can make things happen. Why he must struggle for funding when less talented hacks receive funding for crap. Even P1, with its budget limitations, is a testament to Don’s ability to get the best value for a buck. I’ve heard about the reimage plans….but without Reg or Angus…shug.
