Trivia: Originally, writer Roger Avary wrote a script entitled "Phantasm 1999AD," which would have been a post-apocalyptic adventure that chronicled the epic final battle between Mike and Reggie, and the Tall Man. Creator Don Coscarelli loved the concept, but wasn't able to secure the funding for it, so this film was made to bridge the gap between films. The project as envisioned never saw the light of day, but a few select elements from it were eventually recycled into the fifth film.TedStixon
