Reggie Retrieves The Barracuda From A Car Thief In Phantasm: Ravager

We just watched an awesome new clip from Phantasm: Ravager, which gave me goosebumps. In this clip, Reggie Bannister reprises his role of shotgun-toting ice cream man Reggie, as he heads back to find the abandoned barracuda in the desert where he ends up reclaiming it from the clutches of a car thief. You can watch the clip below.

“Phantasm: Ravager is an all-new film that brings one of cinema’s longest-running franchises (36 years!) without a reboot to a close, with Mike (A. Michael Baldwin) and Reggie (Reggie Banister) teaming up to confront the dimension-hopping Tall Man (Angus Scrimm, in his final role) once and for all.”

For 37 years, audiences have followed small town friends Reggie, Mike, and Jody in their quest to stop the evil, dimension-hopping schemes of The Tall Man (Angus Scrimm in his final performance) and his armada of killer Sentinel Spheres. Now, Don Coscarelli’s acclaimed horror/sci-fi Phantasm franchise comes to a close in a truly epic finale, a multi-dimensional battle across multiple timelines, alien planets, and altered realities, where no less than the fate of Earth is on the line.

The film is directed by David Hartman, who co-wrote the script with Don Coscarelli. Phantasm: Ravager stars Reggie Bannister, Angus Scrimm, A. Michael Baldwin, Kathy Lester, Bill Thornbury, and Daniel Schweiger.

You can check the film when it hits Digital HD alongside Phantasm: Remastered on October 7th. A DVD and Blu-Ray release will be available on December 6th.
