Phantasm 3 is funny, campy, but steers away from the eeriness of the first films and therefore of what the fan might expect. We’re introduced to resilient personalities with a narrow emotional spectrum and to returning lead actors whose characters have properly grown. Reggie Bannister's "Reggie" evolved as Bruce Campbell’s character did across the Evil Dead franchise up until Army of Darkness.
Things pick up where we left off. We don’t waste time on character depth and plunge, instead, right in the action; nunchaku fight included. The Tall Man is back and his prolificity is devastating, turning this sequel into an apocalyptic road movie that feels incomplete and sometimes empty. Phantasm 3, more limited than ever, relies on a limited cast to create an epic that it instigated way back.
By expanding his mythology and elevating the stakes, original creator, writer and director Don Coscarelli toggles to new subgenre cross-overs and might lose some of its audience while gaining none. A. Michael Baldwin, the original protagonist, returns. Since his character was recast as an adult in Part 2, his glorified presence only complicates the narrative and will confuse the unitiated viewer.
