Phantasm isn't the franchise that gets me by the throat but number 3 does deliver what I was looking for. It's action from the beginning until the end and it do has some nasty shots.
Somehow part 1 and 2 showed that it was some kind of low budget flick but here all the money did go to the effects. And they are this time well done with some gory parts and a bit of comedy added. Still it's not a comedy it's a pure fantasy/horror flick. The story itself is always the same, fighting against the tall man and his spheres. But don't watch it for the story, enjoy the action with some old school effects (latex) and the high tech effects CGI wise used back then (morphing).
If you haven't seen earlier Phantasm flicks, don't worry, there's a bit of explanation at the beginning.
