OMFG! Excuse us whilst we burst into a million pieces, but it has finally been confirmed by the man himself, Mr Don Coscarelli, via his official Facebook page, that PHANTASM V: RAVAGER is indeed coming soon and that the recent coverage of both the poster and the statement that the film has been shot are true.
In an exclusive with Entertainment Weekly, Don Coscarelli confirms that he has co-written the film, but has handed the directing reins over to filmmaker and artist David Hartman who he has previously worked with on Bubba Ho-Tep and John Dies at the End. Hartman also assisted Coscarelli in co-writer duties.
Phantasm fans will rejoice as original cast members Reggie Bannister, A. Michael Baldwin, Bill Thornbury and Kat Lester take their rightful place in the film, along with the man that makes us all quake in our boots, Angus Scrimm as the fearsome Tall Man.
Whilst that news is eciting enough, what’s got us giddy most of all is this awesome teaser trailer which you can check out below!
