Phantasm II

Synopsis: Mike is released from psychiatry, when he agrees with the doctors that the terrible happenings in his past were just in his imagination.

Eight years ago, my visions began.

Terrifying fantasies of things to come.

Through them, I found you, Mike.

And your friend Reggie.

First he took Mom and Dad.

Then he took Jody.

Now, he's after me.

Mike, that Tall Man of yours

did not take Jody away.

Jody died in a car wreck.

Hey, you had a dream.

Just a nightmare.

It seemed so real.

You know, partner,

what we need is a change of scenery.

Where will we go?

Well, I don't know. I guess we can

figure that one out when we get there.


Well, get on upstairs,

get your gear together.

Cos we leave when the sun comes up.

But I also found him...

The Tall Man.



Burn, you son of a bitch.


Stay down. It's OK.

I don't know where

he comes from.

Maybe another dimension?

His army of creatures.

He destroys towns and plunders

their graveyards to enslave the dead.

Each day, I can feel him coming closer.

He knows I see him.

And we've both seen what he can do.

Mike and I have grown up together.

I know you're out there.

Soon, my grandfather will die

and my visions will become real.

I need you, Mike.

Help me.

Well, I guess you could say I just...

really went over the deep end.

I got to the point where

I couldn't distinguish fantasy from reality.

That's good, keep it up.

And I don't blame Reg any more.

I mean, what could he do?

The dreams had really taken hold of me.

Just tell him what he wants to hear.

Besides, since I lost my family,

Reg is really the only person I've got.

- He's stood by me.

- I've got to get out of here. She needs me.

I'm looking forward to just moving back in

with him and getting on with my life.

There's a lot of things I want to do.

It's been a tough seven years.

But you've come a long way.

Be well, Michael, and remember,

it was all in your imagination.

Like the f*ck it was.

I was afraid I'd find you here.

Come on, Mike, get up outta there.

This whole place is empty.

- So, come on, let's go home.

- Look at this, goddamn it!

That's the third one I dug up.

Doesn't it strike you as strange that

every corpse in this graveyard is missing?

What do you want, Mike?

I want to stop them.

The Tall Man - that story

about me blowing up my house

because it was infested with midgets?

Mike, that wasn't real.

Your doctors said

it was a paranoid delusion.

F*ck the doctors

and f*ck you if you won't help.

Goddamn it, Mike, I've tried to help you.

What the hell am I supposed to do?

He's showing me things.

I think he wants me to come to him.

- Why you?

- I'm not the only one, there's others.

There's a girl.

She's drawn to him too.

But I'm telling you, man,

without our help, she's gonna die.

He's gotta be stopped and I'm going

after him. I know I can find him.

But to kill him,

I'm going to need your help.

Shit, Mike. If they catch you

digging up graves,

they'll put you away forever.

Come on back to the house.

Come on, man, we can talk it out there.

Dinner's waiting for you.

Aunt Martha came down

and Celeste baked a turkey.

And you know, little Bonnie,

she can't wait to meet her Uncle Mike.

She's been talking about it all day.

She's really high on something.

Welcome home, boy.

Reg! We've got to get the people

out of your house! The gas is gonna blow!

- No! No!

- Reg!

Get them out,

we've got to get them out! Come on!

No, no, no, no!

No! Got to get them out!

You knew before it happened.

I'm so sorry, Reg.

Let's go, Mike.

We've got things to do.

Mike didn't need

to ask me any more.

I enlisted for the duration.

He said it might take us years to find the

Tall Man and if we did, we'd probably die.
