The Phantasm Collection, one of this year’s most anticipated box sets, streets April 11, and Well Go USA Entertainment is offering up new bonus material to add to the 6-disc set. Additional home footage, culled from the films, as well as a tribute to late actor Angus Scrimm (aka The Tall Man), have been added to the release.
“Well Go USA has done an outstanding job in curating the ultimate Phantasm collection,” said director Don Coscarelli. “This terrific new release rivals the best Blu-ray box sets ever in its size and depth. I am so excited to share these never-before-seen features with our devoted fans, who will now be able to witness just how the Phantasm films were created in this stunning high-definition presentation.”
Along with an upscale in its video presentation, the discs are BD50, which leads to higher quality audio and space for the collection’s extensive bonus features. The box set also contains a 120 page book featuring interviews and rare behind-the-scenes photos which chronicles the franchise’s storied history. A reversible poster, featuring the original theatrical artwork, is also part of the set.
