      Jeremiah Kipp Slant Magazine Don Coscarelli outdoes the humor of John Hughes in what feels like a more honest version of the gleeful sadism in Home Alone. Rated: 2.5/4 Jun 23, 2007 Full Review Nick Schager Lessons of Darkness Falls back on mystery-sapping exposition. Rated: C- Oct 31, 2005 Full Review Tim Brayton Antagony & Ecstasy Has none of the surrealistic excess that made the first movie such a genuine delight, and managed to save the second one from itself. Rated: 5/10 Jun 12, 2011 Full Review Jeffrey M. Anderson Combustible Celluloid It's all fairly absurd, but Coscarelli retains his enthusiasm and imagination with a healthy sense of ridiculousness. May 31, 2007 Full Review Kevin Carr 7M Pictures Sure, there's still the '71 Hemi 'Cuda and the four-barrel shotgun, but it's not enough to get past nunchucks and biker zombies. Rated: 2.5/5 May 10, 2007 Full Review Scott Weinberg FEARnet The first film is like an actual nightmare, whereas the sequels feel more like someone's garish descriptions of a nightmare. Rated: 3/5 Apr 12, 2007 Full Review Read all reviews

      Jason S It is not all bad, some scenes are good, but not nearly as good as the first two films. The film is goofy, the acting was not very good. This movie was my least favorite of the franchise. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 05/06/23 Full Review Audience Member I really enjoyed this sequel and think it's almost as good as the first film. it also has some dark humor in it. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 09/20/22 Full Review Audience Member The third film in the Phantasm series drops the ball early on with its awkward casting and clunky store this time around but picks up in the second half. Overall a fun film but also the worst in the series so far! Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review robert p What can I say, but I am a Phantasm fan!!! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member While this is another entertaining entry in the series, it is a bit of a step down from the first two. This doesn't have the mystique or creepiness of the first film, and it is more confusing than 2. While this film has some flaws - namely some inconsistencies with 2 and a drop in the quality of the acting - this film is probably the most fun film of the series. The side characters are the best of the series, and it retains the good practical effects and high octane nature of 2. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie is great as well and the characters were super likeable as they finally answer some questions as the apparently Immortal Tall Man continues to kill Mike and Reggie's Loved Ones. It has good action scenes and a few touching moment but it reuses the ending with a bit of a twist and raises a few more questions that hopefully get answered. Its a very intriguing, scary, imaginative horror flick that deserves more attention. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
