(March 9, 2017) Well Go USA Entertainment announced today the all-new bonus materials included in the upcoming THE PHANTASM COLLECTION, scheduled to release in a limited edition, six-disc Blu-ray box set on April 11. In addition to the previously released archival material included in the box set, Phantasm creator Don Coscarelli has produced hours of never-before-seen material, featuring new interviews with cast and filmmakers, as well as rare archival materials.

    "Well Go USA has done an outstanding job in curating the ultimate Phantasm collection. This terrific new release rivals the best Blu-ray box sets ever in its size and depth," said Don Coscarelli. 'I am so excited to share these never-before-seen features with our devoted fans, who will now be able to witness just how the Phantasm films were created in this stunning high-definition presentation."

    "This box set is the answer to every Phantasm fan's prayers," said Doris Pfardrescher, President & CEO, Well Go USA Entertainment. "The filmmakers have gone above and beyond in order to create the most immersive Phantasm experience possible in one comprehensive box set."

    I disagree. VIOLENTLY to such tinkering. I've always hated that with Lucas, as well. Just leave the past be. The movie has garnered it's cult reputation flaws and all over the past three decades+. At least, allow for an original remastered version of the un-CGI'd version to be issued as well.

    "There are the obvious things we were able to improve – we removed every piece of tape and fishing line utilized in the creation of the silver spheres and how we made them fly. I always thought they were very obvious during the 35mm run. Yet on the Standard Def VHS and DVD, you could never see them.

    The movie was made in a very guerrilla fashion, so there were flaws I didn’t even catch on the first go ‘round. Take for example the moment where the brothers enter that white room in the mausoleum, and there’s this weird yellow bucket in there. I don’t know where that yellow bucket came from! Everyone who watches this movie is so focused on the plot, story and atmosphere, and I’m sitting here going “what’s that bucket doing there? How did it get in the shot?” It’s torture for me to watch the movie sometimes, but we removed things like that which drove me crazy.

    We also improved a few VFX shots that always bothered me, but were also careful not to overdo it. We didn’t want to lose the film’s charm. Also, we didn’t want to remove too much grain, except in the scenes where we were working with damaged negative. It still had to have that analog 35mm flavor. But there was this one visual effect that – at first I didn’t tell anybody, because I wanted to see if anyone would catch it at SXSW – nobody caught. It’s a profile close-up shot of the ball flying down the hallway and we had done it the old fashioned way: put it up against some black velvet to create the shot. But there was no movement in the shot and nothing reflecting off of the ball as it moved. So we tinkered with flaws like that. There’s the old adage that whenever filmmakers watch their own films all they see are the flaws and that’s totally the case with me."
