Phantasm Ravager co-producer Gigi Bannister has confirmed via social media the celebrity guest list for both the upcoming Fantastic Fest screening of Phantasm Remastered and world premiere of Phantasm Ravager, which are set to go down starting September 24. More info on the festival site. And all you can really say is… WOW. The roster is hot-as-love!
The impressive lineup includes Don Coscarelli, David Hartman, JJ Abrams, A. Michael Baldwin, Reggie and Gigi Bannister, Bill Thornbury, Kathy Lester, Bob Ivy and “many of the cast and crew” beyond those luminaries. Gigi also writes, “Many photo and autograph opportunities as well as the new Remastered poster and other perks for Phans. Q&As and interview ops all weekend. More news as we learn it.”
I'm fairly confident this will be the most star-studded Phantasm premiere of all time, even besting the Phantasm II premiere event, though that screening had Angus Scrimm in-costume and in-character as the Tall Man, which is kind've hard to beat!
