Many of you like myself will be happy to know that Don Coscarelli‘s Phantasm (1979) will be getting a special 4K restoration. J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions will be handling the Phantasm 4K restoration from the original camera negatives. Check out the stills below for a taste of how clean the movie will be. I cannot wait to see The Tall Man in 4K and his bunch of evil dwarves. Coscarelli has been working on this restoration that delayed the new Phantasm film Phantasm: Ravager directed by David Hartman. Coscarelli co-wrote and produced Phantasm: Ravager. How many of you are going to watch the new 4K version of Phantasm?
