Well Go USA Entertainment has announced its acquisition of North American rights for Don Coscarelli's legendary Phantasm series, including an all-new 4K restoration of the original 1979 cult classic Phantasm: Remastered, never-before-seen HD restorations of 1994's Phantasm III: Lord of the Dead and 1998's Phantasm IV: Oblivion, and the long-anticipated debut of the fifth and final film in the series, 2016's Phantasm: Ravager.
On October 7th, for the first time ever, the Phantasm series will be available in remastered, high-definition versions across all cable and digital platforms.
A Blu-ray Collector's Edition Set of the Phantasm series will follow later this year, along with individual Blu-rays of Phantasm: Remastered and Phantasm: Ravager, all of which will be packed with special bonus features.
Phantasm: Remastered came into being when filmmaker J.J. Abrams, a fan of the original, wanted to screen the film for his team at Bad Robot Productions- only to find the available prints in terrible shape. Working on the premises of Bad Robot with their expert staff, director Don Coscarelli was invited by J.J. to supervise a meticulous 4K digital remaster using their state-of-the-art tools. This included a brand-new 5.1 audio mix using the original stems, ensuring Phantasm will forever be available to scare the hell out of generations to come with perfect picture and sound.
