Angus Scrim, aka, the Tall Man, has to be one of the most interesting characters ever seen in a horror movie. His status held up well into the 80's and the first in the Phantasm series starts it off with a well balanced horror classic. This movie had the right music, the right characters, and a spooky atmosphere rarely seen in films of its time. The killer metal balls were another unique idea that is perhaps as cool as the tall man himself. It also features one the creepiest psychic readings of any movie till this day. The ending, which was questionable to some, was not so disappointing when the sequel finally came out and they pretty much continued with all the same characters.
