“PHANTASM: RAVAGER”, 4K “PHANTASM” Confirmed for 2016 release!


After the heartbreaking passing of Angus Scrimm this past weekend, some horror hounds had wondered if this would impact the release of the upcoming PHANTASM: RAVAGER. However, fright fans need not fret, as Don Coscarelli has told Entertainment Weekly that both the David Hartman-directed PHANTASM: RAVAGER and the 4K Bad Robot-commissioned PHANTASM transfer are “pretty much done” and, barring any unexpected developments, will be releasing in 2016!

Coscarelli revealed to EW’s Clark Collis that both PHANTASM projects will be seeking a “first-or-second quarter release” in 2016, and that there are plans to pursue a theatrical option for the films although the will likely to be limited to revival houses. Coscarelli also confirmed an impending Blu-ray release for the 4K PHANTASM, and that aside from a brand new video transfer, the film will be carrying a newly minted 5.1 audio mix. Stay tuned for more on this Phantastic news as it becomes available!
