Phantasm II 

When: Wed., Oct. 10, 8 p.m. 2012

What: 

Recently, there was a limited-release Jessica Biel horror flick called The Tall Man that got some decent reviews, but for many horror fans, the only Tall Man worth remembering is the sphere-wielding alien mortician ... thing from Don Coscarelli's Phantasm films. Memorable for his great height, sunken features and deep intonation of the phrase "BOOOOOOYYYYYYYY!" (he really hates that boy), he's a walking special effect as chilling as any made-up movie monster. This second in the four-film series is the only one not to feature the entire original cast, with film and TV mainstay James LeGros taking over as lead at the request of Universal Studios. But it still enjoys a positive reputation, and it was hard to see for a while, being the only Phantasm flick not available on DVD or Netflix for some time. Get your Tall Man on ... that sounds wrong ... at this special screening with a heap of old trailers at 8 p.m. Tickets are $5.50, cash only. —Zack Smith
