As part of this September's Scalarama cinematic celebrations, we are proud to have teamed up with the Genesis Cinema to treat you to a free late evening double bill of Arrow Video horror classics - PHANTASM (1979) and PHANTASM 2 (1988).
Phantasm: The residents of a small town have begun dying under strange circumstances, leading young Mike (Michael Baldwin) to investigate. After discovering that the Tall Man (Angus Scrimm), the town's mortician, is killing and reanimating the dead as misshapen zombies, Mike seeks help from his older brother, Jody (Bill Thornbury), and local ice cream man Reggie (Reggie Bannister). Working together, they try to lure out and kill the Tall Man, all the while avoiding his minions and a deadly silver sphere.
Phantasm II: Years after surviving his encounter with the sinister Tall Man (Angus Scrimm), Mike Pearson (James LeGros), now a mental patient, still has nightmares about the evil gaunt mortician. Upon being released from the institution, Mike and his friend Reggie (Reggie Bannister) set out to track down the Tall Man and end his murderous and macabre practices. Also involved is Liz Reynolds (Paula Irvine), a pretty young woman who has a psychic connection to both Mike and the Tall Man.
This screening is part of Scalarama, a nationwide celebration of cinema which takes place throughout September.
Entry is free but we recommend reserving spot.
