tsfp-phantasm-v-ravager-bannerWelcome to The SciFi Podcast, a wretched hive of scum and villainy a bi-weekly podcast focused on in-depth discussion of all things Science Fiction. The SciFi Podcast features four hosts—Mattroid, Solo, Brain, and Station!—and frequent guests. Each episode we look at a science fiction theme or franchise and take the discussion where no show has gone before.

In this special episode, Mattroid and Solo are joined by SpaceWolf, as well as long-time friend Paco, for a live recounting of their Phantasm: Ravager viewing experience and an impromptu review.

Don’t miss our two crossover episodes with Horror Movie Podcast where we review Phantasms I – IV. The reviews begin on HMP Episode 82 with Phantasm and Phantasm II and continue on TSFP Episode 18 with Phantasm III and Phantasm IV.

  1. Station disliked these movies?!

    Well, the first one was the best. I wasn’t aware of the intermediate sequels before the 4th and watching it I really obviously missed a lot and was confused for much of it. This one looks… interesting. I really like the prospect of the advanced tech being this overwhelming force.

  3. Just to clarify;when I say Reggie represents “innocence” I really mean the innocence of adolescence. That he is Mike’s inner child… In point of fact, I don’t think “Reggie” exists at all and that he is a delusion of a fractured mind. The Tall Man doesn’t exist, Jody is a memory, and we are seeing things from Mike’s mind completely. I think this is more true with Mike pulling away and disassociating himself more and more. I don’t think Mike was visiting Reggie, either… I don’t think anyone was there at all. Just Mike… Alone and deluded and living in his own head and dying.

  4. A heads up to anyone interested in looking back at the Phantasm series, the streaming service, Shudder, just added Phantasm (Remastered version), Phantasm 3, and Phantasm 4 to their service on November 1st.

    If you’ve never had a subscription to Shudder, you’re able to score a free one week trial. Considering the fact that Phantasm 4 was such a difficult film to find legally as recent as when HMP/TSFP did their coverage of the series, it’s a pretty nice coup to find it so easily now.
