Talk about being blindsided. This came out of nowhere:

If you're even remotely familiar with the series, you might understand why this is awfully exciting.

I'll second your "huh". I haven't been as ear-to-the-ground as in the past, but this was the first I'd heard.

You mean the movie with the metal ball?

I guess I'm surprised Angus Scrimm is still alive. I thought he was old in the FIRST movie.

I'm going to have to revisit PHANTASM. I don't think I've seen it since college.
- I love to find adventure. All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.

Is it still happening? On a double bill with the remake of CLIFFHANGER?

The deadly metal ball is growing grey pubic hair.

Is it still happening?
Rumor is an October release. Suspicion is it will be a limited theatrical presence with a rapid release to video. Not based on any qualitative judgement; more based on length of time the franchise has been dormant and the shift in the bell curve for theatrical duration versus time-to-video-release.
