“God love ’em, but ‘Phantasm’ fans are insatiable. Obviously, the loss of Angus makes the prospect of another sequel challenging. So I guess the short answer is that we aren’t currently planning another sequel at this time. That being said, we always do listen closely to what our long time fans say.”
The Dunsmuir-Hellman Historic Estate, located in eastern Oakland, should first and foremost be famous to any true horror fans. It was the filming location of the 1979 horror film Phantasm. The mansion on the grounds served as the mortuary run by the Tall Man, portrayed by Angus Scrimm.
He enjoyed the affection and respect of everyone he met. After his wife, Helen – herself a much loved Whitstable figure – died in 1971, and was buried in St Alphege’s Church at Seasalter Cross, he made, so long as health allowed, a daily pilgrimage to her grave, there to sit and commune with her.

Movie maniacs like Jason Voorhees have grown considerably over the years and so has Michael Myers. In fact, Michael is at the taller end of the spectrum for masked maniacs. Original Michael actor Nick Castle comes in at 5 feet 10 inches, while the newest actor comes in at 6 feet 3 inches.
Jason found his mother’s severed head in the forest and began his killing streaks in retaliation for her death. Jason Voorhees, portrayed by Derek Mears in Friday the 13th (1980), is 6 foot 5 inches (1.96 m) tall. Jason Voorhees is the main villain of the slasher movie series Friday the 13th.
The residents of a small town have begun dying under strange circumstances, leading young Mike (Michael Baldwin) to investigate. After discovering that the Tall Man (Angus Scrimm), the town’s mortician, is killing and reanimating the dead as misshapen zombies, Mike seeks help from his older brother, Jody (Bill Thornbury), and local ice cream man Reggie (Reggie Bannister). Working together, they try to lure out and kill the Tall Man, all the while avoiding his minions and a deadly silver sphere.
Answer: The tall man was another policeman in plain clothes. He had been sent by Jimmy Wells to arrest Bob.
The Tall Man was a powerful demon who was believed to be impossible to be vanquished. His body served as a dimensional portal. The Source of All Evil felt so threatened by him, that he ordered the Seer to forge a magical cage to imprison the Tall Man for all eternity.
It can only be speculated that while in a different dimension Jebediah’s body was possessed by another intelligence, or that his physical likeness has been assumed by some otherworldly, evil entity while killing off the original man. It might also be that his experiences changed him radically.
Thanks to Madman, we had the chance to see an Australian documentary – ‘The Tall Man’ on DVD. Based on real life events, the film tells the story of Cameron Doomadgee, an Aboriginal man taken to a police station for public profanity later found dead in custody with injuries similar from a car crash.
It wasn’t a dream after all! Or, uh, was it? In the Phantasm movies, even that which seems like a given is revealed as an uncertainty eventually. … As did Bill Thornbury as Jody, though it seems he was never really part of the plot anyway — his resurrection doesn’t arrive until the next film.
Along with Ravager, Well Go has also purchased the rights to the original Phantasm as well as two of its sequels – 1994’s Phantasm III: Lord of the Dead and 1998’s Phantasm IV: Oblivion – with plans to release all four films on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital streaming platforms this Fall.
Obviously, the loss of Angus makes the prospect of another sequel challenging. So I guess the short answer is that we aren’t currently planning another sequel at this time. That being said, we always do listen closely to what our longtime fans say.”
A female lead had to be added as a love interest for the character of Mike. Actress Paula Irvine was cast in the part. Universal executives wanted to recast both A. Michael Baldwin and Reggie Bannister because they were unknown and had been out of the movie business since the release of the first movie.
