Phans (no, that's not spelled wrong) eagerly awaited this apparent last
entry to the Phantasm movies for a long time indeed. Phantasm started
way back in 1979 with the original cult classic, which was actually
remastered recently. They probably waited more than 20 years to get
Ravager made if you research it long enough.
Angus who played the villain in every entry up to Ravager, sadly passed away in early 2016. But the wait just wasn't worth it. The effects are okay, and the film actually started off good. While the series is nothing to write home about, the story in the others was rather fun. Ravager on the other hand is just so confusing, and the finale didn't really pay off. Out of nowhere, this little man of a short stature who is a soldier or something just appears and upstages Reggie. Yeah. Some nobody apparently kills off "The Tall Man" in one super-duper head scratching moment, only it's hinted that there's a lot of 'Tall Men' in the universe. Maybe they're his many alien clones. Who knows?
It's just a series of strung together kills, running around, and dream like scenes with Reggie in a hospital talking to another stalwart of the series named Mike. The ending was just so uninspiring. The film answers no questions at all. There's even a pointless cameo from Rocky, the tough chick from Phantasm III: Lord of the Dead who does not even appear until during the end credits, but her showing up served no real purpose and she never evens talk to Reggie, but rather Chunk, who is the little guy I've just told you about. The ending sort of suggests a sequel could happen one day, but as Angus is no longer here, it's unlikely to happen. It sort of has made the story of the series now feel somewhat irrelevant. Was it all just a dream? Who knows? I'm actually shocked that they didn't do more with this movie. Even Phantasm IV: Oblivion was heaps better.
