Phantasm is a movie about a young boy and his older brother who do battle with the undertaker of their local cemetery who is turning the recent dead into his slaves. It was one of the most original horror movies to be released during it’s time. Featuring the Tall Man and his sentinels, this low budget film was a major success for director, writer, and producer Don Coscarelli. It’s still one of my favorite films and makes me feel like I’m on acid every time I see it.

This soundtrack was composed by Fred Myrow and Malcolm Seagrave and has a rock feel to it. It’s original and sticks in your head.
